Drum track -- just curious about defaults

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Still getting my feet wet with the Seq.  I was poking around the code on SVN and found the following for the defaults in the Drum tracks:

 

// MIDI   LABEL  MIDI    GM Percussion map
   0x24, // BD   (36 C1)  (Bass Drum)
   0x26, // SD   (38 D1)  (Snare Drum)
   0x2a, // CH   (42 F#1) (Closed Hat)
   0x2c, // PH   (44 Ab1) (Pedal Hat)
   0x2e, // OH   (46 Bb1) (Open Hat)
   0x46, // MA   (70 Bb3) (Maracas)
   0x27, // CP   (39 Eb1) (Clap)
   0x37, // CY   (55 G2)  (Splash Cymbal)
   0x29, // LT   (41 F1)  (Low floor tom)
   0x2b, // MT   (43 G1)  (High floor tom) ??
   0x2f, // HT   (47 B1)  (Low-mid tom)    ??
   0x4b, // RS   (75 Eb4) (Claves)         ??
   0x38, // CB   (56 Ab2) (Cowbell)
   0x2c, // Smp1 (44 Ab1) (Pedal hat)      ??
   0x3c, // Smp2 (60 C3)  (High bongo)
   0x3d  // Smp3 (61 C#3) (Low Bongo)

I don't have my Seq in front of me to verify, but I'm curious about a few things -- marked with ??s.

So, the HT and MT values seem to be switched compared to what the General MIDI percussion map states -- why's that?

Also, Smp1 seems to be assigned the same value as the Pedal Hat by default, which seems odd... any reason why?

And why are the Claves marked "RS"?  Is there some other name for them (rhythm sticks)?

I know all this can be changed, I'm just curious what's up with the default values is all.  Thanks!

RS usually stands for Rimshot and is shared on the same channel as Claves on the TR-08.

My guess is it has something to do with TK owning a MIDIbox 808?
