Can anyone please explain how to score JABB percussion?
Looking through the handbook, the JABB tambourine, for example, is listed as MIDI notes 83, 84, 85 (B, C, C#). I have tried just about every 'B', 'C' and 'C#' in every octave and still no instrument!
So, using Finale 2010 and using the Setup Wizard with JABB KP2 Tambourine I thought I couldn't go wrong, everything would happen automatically and be set up ready to go. Wrong! I even tried with a single instrument in the document to eliminate assignement and chanel errors. Although the document loaded I got an error window as follows:
'The selected document does not include the percussion layout required by the tambourine. Select a different document style or percussion instrument or setup manually.'
I tried with a different JABB percussion instrument .. still the same message. I tried setting up manually .. zero!
When I checked in KP2, the JABB percussion instruments are loaded and sound on the virtual keyboard.
Can anyone make any other suggestions on how to score the JABB percussion?
