This article shows the standard General MIDI (GM) drum assignments of MIDI note numbers to instrument names. This article also shows how BeatBuddy Manager assigns note numbers to instrument WAV sounds in the v1.20 drum kits.
If you import a MIDI file and your fancy cowbell solo is silent in BB Manager, it probably means the BB Drum Kit does not have an instrument WAV sound assigned to that MIDI note number. For example, cowbell is MIDI note number 56. Most GM software has a cowbell sound assigned here. BB Manager currently has no sound on note 56 in content v1.20.
You have two options to fix silent MIDI notes:
You can update the BB Drum Kit to have an instrument WAV sound assigned to that MIDI note number. (Instructions coming soon.)
You can edit the MIDI file in a MIDI editor (such as Reaper’s MIDI piano roll) and move the notes from one number to another.[/list]

(Sorry for the squirrely formatting. If someone can tell me the BB code for a fixed font width, I will fix the formatting. Or perhaps the Beat Buddy forum owners can change the code block to a fixed width font style.)
