I'd love to add more instrument definitions, but most of them cannot be "legally" mapped to particular MIDI channels (think about variety of country specific plucked strings and woodwind instruments). How do I solve this?
Also, is there some kind of description of the instruments definition file format? I find it difficult to understand which values should be used in transposition and clef tags.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. What I'd really love to see is some standard for instruments definition that could be shared by MuseScore, Rosegarden, Qtractor and whoever comes a long. E.g. Rosegarden has a very nice feature of adapting a score written for one instrument to score for another instrument with considering abilities of a player, and this feature seems to heavily rely on their instruments definition file (which is in fact very similar to the one from MuseScore except it has additional tags to define range achievable by an amateur and a professional).
