Once again, complaints about the drum palette.
My drumkit needs are so very simple. I need a kick, snare, one or two toms, HH and a crash. Sometimes, not even that much. Yet just to enter a simple part requires so much that I don't even write kit parts in MuseScore.
I get it. If I used shortcuts to enter notes and drum parts, things go very fast and easy. But I don't. I use a mouse. If I would just learn keyboard input, things would go easier. I want to use the mouse. So I am punished. I don't have to use the keyboard to enter notes. But I have to use it to input drum parts. Sure, I can edit the palette to remove the sounds I don't need, but I still have to use the palette. I can't just enter notes on a staff to get a simple part.
To be clear, I don't want or need the palette. It takes up space on the screen. If I want a kick drum note followed by a snare, I don't want to have to hit some letter followed by entering the note. For a mouser, this is too many steps. Just to enter four on the floor with off beat snare, I can't just enter the notes. I have to go through the palette. Which is extra steps and time.
Sure , this is how the software works. I get it. But so much else about MuseScore is so easy to use. The drum pallete.....?
