Get Drumset Crash, Marching Drums, Latin Percussion
Hey Noteflight Team, I love the software and everything! What I am REALLY hoping for is some more percussion sounds/notes. If there could be a crash or splash for the drumest? or if there could be some latin style percussive sounds- such as cowbell, maracas, guero? Finally i would love it if there could be quad toms, marching snare/bass. Thankyou

PLEASE get marching drums!! Whether they're offered in the free version or just in the Crescendo version, I would pay for membership either way.
Um... By the way... Which way is the NF HQ?
Such is life. We get loads of votes on an idea, and NOTEFLIGHT STILL WON'T EVEN REPLY!!!!! *angry glare in direction of NF HQ*
I agree with more percussions sound, especially with latin percs : Güiro long & short, shell timbales both sides for cascara, cha bell, campana bell and contra-campana bell, bongo muff, tip, toe, slap, conga slap, tip, toe, muff both on medium congas and low congas (tumba), maracas, timbales side, center and muff for both high and low timbales (hembra and macho). Feel free to contact me for more details. Thanks in advance, I hope a latin bank will be released some day.
Seriously Awesome. Hope we win the vote!!!! :)

I reaaaaalllllllllyyyyyy need marching drums. It will make life so much easier.
IT NEEDS MORE COWBELL!!!
I completely agree with adding more percussion sounds. Drumline and front ensemble instruments with proper playback would be great too. Let us write music for a marching band/drum corps.
DRUMLINE PERCUSSION! It's hard to do the cadences without quad tom sounds.

What I would really love to see is the ability to piece together a 'custom drum set'. Ideally, I'd be able to piece together a staff of pitched percussion instruments tailored to the key of the song.
One example of this would be:
Pitched Ride Cymbal 'A'
Pitched Clap 'A'
Pitched Clap 'F#'
Pitched Clap 'D'
Pitched Crash Cymbal 'D'
Pitched Snare Drum 'A'
Pitched Tom 'A'
Pitched Tom 'G'
Pitched Bass Drum 'D'
There could be some predefined instances available ("latin percussion section", "marching quads", etc.), but it would certainly be useful to have the flexibility to define your own.
I would _really_ like to see support for pitched percussion, and I think that this would be the best way to do it. Since a piece would generally not call for every pitch from any given percussion instrument (most often only one), being able to mix and match several different instruments onto one score would be quite useful.
Yea, was wondering about where the crashes went..... Oh, one more, "clap". Make that part of the drum set, it's convenient, too.
Don't forget other versions of drum sets......standard, rock, hip-hop, electric, jazz, trance,etc.....
Great idea, I put this up as a request too before I found yours
Yes I rather have crashes than splashes!
There's one if you get Crescendo, I think you get both a crash and a splash-y one. Still that doesn't change the fact that a crash is essential to mark accents and the start of phrases. An open hi-hat is the closest you can get right now, but still not the same.
I'm confused as to how there's still no crash in the percussion set, especially since this has been requested for years, apparently. Is one available with a paid membership?
A drum set without a crash isn't a drum set. :P It's essential for accents, especially in rock music. I agree with this. Latin percussion would be great as well, though I've never composed in that style.
Wholeheartedly agree! More crashes, cowbells etc. And being able to assign the notes according to the desired sound.

I was actually going to request the same thing. I am currently attempting to write a show for an indoor percussion ensemble, but it is almost impossible to without Marching Snares, Tenors, Tonal Bass Drums, and
Tonal Marching Cymbals. Please update! I would consider purchasing Crescendo if they sounds didn't come with the free account! :D

Yes, please, we need some tenors, cymbles, and basses. Maybe some chimes too (mallet and wind)

I totally agree. I'm tired of having to try and use an open high hat as a crash... it just doesn't work. Crash cymbals are a huge part of percussion sections, and in my opinion are vital enough to include in the free version.
