Note Types and their corresponding MIDI notes can be referenced and edited in the Percussion MIDI Map Editor dialog box. The staff position and noteheads of a Note Type can be edited in the Percussion Layout Designer dialog box.. Use this utility to reconvert note types based on a different mapping if you find that the note types assigned to a converted percussion layout do not represent your desired sounds.
