I wrote this because memorizing all the MIDI numbers is just...annoying. So here's a program that types them in for you.

How it works: the window is non-focusable and always on top, so just start TuxGuitar and make a percussion track like normal. Then select anywhere on the tablature, and click one of the buttons. That drum will be entered, and you should be able to hear its sound.

I don't have Guitar Pro or PowerTab, but it will probably work on those too.

Using robot.. it's not working fine on my PC..
it seems that KeyRelease is missing.. and i need to kill the operation to finish pressing keys :p

Only at "HiHatOpenButtonActionPerformed" i see KeyRelease called, but it releases a different code:

note that it releases key code 51, while it should be 52

Ah, it works fine for me. I'll add KeyRelease for you, it will be easy. Thanks for the email, BTW.

And yeah, that was a typo haha. I'm going to fix that now :P

I also tried to use the plugin but it does not appear in the plugin list, once jar file copied in the right folder.
Please could you help me ?
As a lot of druimmers, I also wanted to read a tab with std notation, i.e. :
Count:| 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 2 3 + 4 + |
Cym:| ---------------- | --------------X- |
HH:| X-x-X-x-X-x-X-x- | O---O---O-x-X--- |
Tom1:| ---------------- | ----------o----- |
Tom2:| ---------------- | ------------o--- |
SnD:| ----o-------o--- | ----o----------- |
BD:| o-------o------- | o-------o-----o- |

Thanks a lot.
