Input notes directly in a drum staff using the computer keyboard or mouse, with out having to use the drum palette
I studied the manuals for five or six of the major notation programs. All but one offer by default, direct note input on a drum staff with standard keyboard shortcuts or by mouse. All drum notes in one voice, by default. Though more voices can be used. Just like note input for any other instrument. Piano, for example. Consider this using the palette:
I am told that this is better because the rhythm of each drum is obvious. But lets add some cymbal work.
Things are less clear. Other programs allow the following result quite easily.
MuseScore can do this too, But not so straight forward. Then there is a simple fill.
To do this in MuseScore requires the palette, a series of drum and voice changes, in addition to note input. In other software, this can be entered directly into a drum staff.
I don't want to take the palette away, for those who prefer it. But consider that as far as note input goes, the palette is inconsistent with general input. And requires its own learning curve. So perhaps a check box in Preferences that says "Use Drum Palette".
What sound is associated with what line or space is fairly standard. What is not standard (though certainly used) is the hands and feet notation that MuseScore wants to use. Do a google search of drum notation examples and you will see all different kinds of notation.
