Project
  1. Open attached mscz (produced in 3.2.3).
  2. 'File'>'Export…'.
  3. Choose MusicXML and save.
  4. Open MusicXML (also attached).

Result: Drums sound piano.

Workaround: Untick drumset and tick again.

Note: Also reproducible with a 2.3.2 mscz and MusicXML - it all works fine in that version.

Using MuseScore 3.2.3 - Mac 10.11.6.


Comments

MusicXML test file mtest/musicxml/io/testDrumset1.xml sounds like piano instead of drums in current MuseScore releases (3.4.2, 3.5.0 and master). MuseScore 2.3.2 and 3.0.0 still sound OK, could not quickly test the other releases.

The workaround mentioned is unticking / ticking the "Drumset" checkbox in the mixer panel. Saving the file imported from MusicXML (sounding like piano) in MuseScore format and loading the MuseScore file results in drum set sounds again. Thus it seems the mixer setting are incorrect for a drum set part after MusicXML import.
