Converting a PDF to drumset

• Dec 15, 2018 - 12:56

I transferred a PDF to MuseScore. The part was a drum part, but it was converted into a voice. Is there anyway to transfer a PDF to drum set?


The short answer is no. Audiveris (which imports PDF files) basically makes everything a piano and there's no way to convert a pitched staff to an unpitched staff in MuseScore.

You could try to copy the score created by the import to an unpitched percussion staff if the notes are in the correct position. After pasting, select all of the notes (which should be automatic) and press the up arrow immediately followed by the down arrow. You can then see if the notes sound correct. If they do, great, if not, then you can't use the PDF import.
