Musescore 3.5 Beta Drumset / Instrument Files

• Jun 13, 2020 - 00:50

I use VDL pretty regularly with Musescore, and I've created a custom instrument XML file to add all of the instruments the VDL adds. With 3.5 Beta when I load in custom drumset or instrument files it resets all of the noteheads to the "normal" notehead. Has anyone else experienced this issue?


The way noteheads are managed is a bit different in 3.5. Any solution working for 3.4 would need to be recreated.
I would love to see what you are doing here and think it could be interesting to release a VDL pack as an extension that would include all proper settings and template, etc.

I experienced this issue when I used your XML file with MuseScore 2 and transitioned to 3. I'm not sure if this is currently what's going on with the shift from 3.4.2 to 3.5.

With the XML file you published with the VDL with MuseScore tutorial, the noteheads are assigned like this:

In a .drm file that I edited to have proper noteheads, the same drum looks like this:

Not sure if this is how it is on your end. I haven't tried this out with 3.5 yet.
