I have a drum track in cubase but none of the pitches line up with any sort of standard because the midi notes are feeding kontakt samplers, etc. I need to score the song in Dorico, but when I bring in the midi file the pitches are all just randomly assigned to various parts of the kit. For example, my kick is on the part of the staff where the snare would be. I see where in Dorico I can edit the percussion kit and drag the snare down to the right spot, but the notehead still isn’t right, and dorico still thinks it’s a snare. How do I fix this? I have tried to look in to creating new percussion maps, but I’m lost and I’m not even sure if that’s what I need to do.
Currently my workaround is to duplicate the midi track in Cubase and then make a dummy part that is mapped correctly and then just export that, but it would be great to be able to get this to automatically work on import. Thanks!
