... I decided to start a separate topic here, instead of "crashing" (ahem ...) into the "cymbal rolls" topic ...
I'm composing a piece which features a military-drum (snare ...) roll, followed by two sharp strikes. That's what I'd like to =notate= and, insofar as possible, also what I'd like to =hear.=
On my downstream DAW program, of course, a very-good "drum roll" is a separate note.
But what is the correct and expected way to NOTATE a drum-roll?
Follow-on question: "and then, what's the best way (if any) to cause MuseScore playback to produce a decent sound?" (Especially: one that would most-easily translate to the DAW's environment when the composition is eventually exported, and perhaps also, the best way to export it.)
