I have several questions regarding percussion in GM 2 specification.
- In GM 2 we should select percussion set first and then select instrument. In ORCHESTRA set there are duplicated instruments. For example, Concert SD stands for both 38 (D) and 40 (E) notes. How should we deal with this cases? When I want to send Concert Snare Drum, what note should I use? Any? And when I receive either 38 or 40 note, should I treat both ones as Concert Snare Drum? Why GM 2 percussion spec contains ambiguity?
- To send percussion notes we should send Note On/Note Off events pairs always prepended with bank select events, am I right?
