Generic wind.flutes.whistle.tin without key is ambiguous
S4 - Minor
As discussed in Improve Tin Whistle instrument name by adding key the Tin Whistle as an instrument does not have a default key/pitch (like trumpet in Bb flute in C, where the keys for these instruments are implied if left out). Not specifying a key on the tin whistle is open to interpretation (it can either be C or D) and will cause confusion.
I had a discussion with W3C about the same issue in their upstream sounds definition, https://github.com/w3c/musicxml/issues/289 , and they accepted adding a new instrument, wind.flutes.whistle.tin.c but wanted to keep wind.flutes.whistle.tin (and leave the pitch open to the application implementer).
So I guess we'd have to wait for this to find its way into MusicXML before we change the MuseScore instruments.xml to add or change that instrument
Thanks, I hear you. I have asked MusicXML to merge, again.
Updated the PR, so that this also shows the state
I have expanded this PR to include a generic / common wind.whistle.tin , equivalent in pitch to wind.whistle.tin.d / Tin Whistle, which aligns it with
a) https://github.com/w3c/musicxml/blob/v3.1/schema/sounds.xml once PR https://github.com/w3c/musicxml/pull/299 is merged
