Playback of percussive notes on string instruments
Modern pieces often require string players to make drum noises on the bodies of their instruments. Sometimes an x notehead is used along with textual instructions to indicate this.
I have a score in which this is the case and I would like to make MuseScore (and musescore.com) to playback these percussive notes (with some regular GM percussion patch). Any suggestions? I have tried creating my own instruments.xml, but I'm not sure how to create an instrument that has both unpitched drums and pitched notes.
