I watched the videos around Drums in One Minute, Drum Notation Examples. Still, this topic remains unfamiliar/incomprehensible to me at the moment. Need to see if my reasoning is correct.
My question as a newcomer:
I want all existing “General Midi percussion map data” sounds to appear in the score. Example: Midi note 29 / Note name F1 / Snare roll.
- I have an 88-key Piano keyboard. Range: 0A. to C8.
- A drummer track/player with Halion sound (GM 129) stereo gm kit loaded.
- Using the General Midi percussion data mapping.
I want to set Midi note 29 / Note name F1/ Snare roll to be seen and played in the score. how do i do this?
If I follow my reasoning; I should assign the note name F1 to D2 note 38 (acoustic snare) which corresponds to the note name C4 on the score? However, if I count from bottom to top of the 88-key keyboard, the key C4 is midi note 39. I read that C4 is IN midi DOCUMENTATION note 60. If I give a key-switch NUMBER of acoustic snare 38 on Midi note 29 / Note name F1/ Snare roll, it should also appear on C4 in the score, right?.
Thank you very much for enlightening me on this. Musical regards Yannick
