Like a good little user I searched first before I posted, and I found many posts about instruments.xml living in the Templates directory. I don't see it there, in fact I issued a full disk find command and I found it in
I use Mac and so do a lot of users...
My Templates folder was empty. So my question is this:
If I copy the instruments.xml from the Applications location into Templates and then edit it, will my edited one be used or do I have to do something or configure something to make it find it. The next question is well I am editing instruments and I want to both use the Brazilian names for some existing instruments so I guess that would be translations and also add some instruments that you don't have, I don't think you have berimbau. So I would just copy the XML block for some other percussion instrument, and edit its attributes accordingly? Finally, if I actually PLAY the score, how can I add actual samples of the different instruments so it will sound vaguely correct.
My percussion score at the moment is kinda crude, it just has hits in various lines that are mislabeled because I chose from the available options, and I have to remember this one is really left timbal and this one is right and so on. The different stroke type note heads are all wrong.
