MusiCAD can be used to produce drum-kit-notation. To get corresponding playback-sounds any drum-part must have been assigned midi channel 10.

A 'standard' drum kit consists of:

  • snare-drum
  • bass-drum
  • floor-toms
  • hi-hat
  • ride-cymbal

The bass-drum and hi-hat are played with feet and their notes get sticks down, whereas all other notes get sticks up.
