I just finished setting up a fairly elaborate Bongo setup with 16 different Playing Techniques to match the sample library I’m using. I only used a single Bongo so I can have high above the line, and low below the line the way this is almost always notated. (Virtually no one uses a 2-line Bongo setup for high and low, when 1-line suffices and clearly shows the notation.) The macho and hembra are in the same VST so they are just different notes, not on different channels, and work fine with a single line setup.
Unfortunately, since it’s not a percussion kit, I’m only now just realizing that I can’t export this setup for use in other projects. Obviously the percussion map can be exported, but the Percussion Instrument Playing Techniques cannot.
Aaarrrgghh! That was quite a lot of work not to be able to reuse in other projects. Does anyone have a way to export this for use elsewhere? Or save as a doricolib file, or instrument definition, or something? I have an equally complex single-line Conga setup in this project too. They will work fine for this template, but I didn’t realize these would then be one-offs, and wouldn’t be able to be used elsewhere, otherwise I wouldn’t have made such a complete set of techniques.
