MDL SFZ Compatibility with VDL Keymaps

Hello. I'm currently starting a project involving MDL SFZs being compatible with VDL keymaps. Since VDL is probably not going to change, I wanted, to try changing the SFZ of MDL so that MDL playback would match VDL playback with the same keymap. I would like to know if someone else has already started/finished doing this as I have only completed SnareLine Manual as of this post and I would not like to waste my time doing the rest if someone else has already made them. I think it would be a good idea to do this so that people using VDL with MuseScore could get VDL playback with their device and upload the same score and have MDL playback available on the website.

Song Request

Would anyone have the time to arrange a song for me and my band? Possibly where I could get the score and all the parts as well? I want to get the SU arrangement of Understanding, when they played it for the Bayou Classic last weekend.

Marching Band Show Ideas

Exactly as the title implies, I’d like for people to bounce their ideas for marching band shows off of me. I’m a high school junior trained in percussion and various string instruments, and have a private teacher actively teaching me theory. It won’t be overnight, but I plan to write something like a show for my school’s marching band before my time there is done.

Please make this song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTpGF6otM1Q It's called Breadfan and our band loves the song so much that our band teacher, he errrr banned (or band, if i wanted to be punny) the song. So he took away the song from us and we don't have the music for it. Some of the best players remember it, but most forgot. So it would be appreciated if someone could bring our lovely breadfan back to us so we can be happy yet again because we hate our band teacher and vice versa and we want our breadfan back.

MuseScore Drumline Not Working

Hey there! For some unknown reason, my MuseScore Drumline Extension quit a few days ago, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both MuseScore and MuseScore Drumline. It will not play—even when I'm adding the notes in on the software—and there's no playback. I didn't do anything to make it stop working, but maybe I can keep trying to reinstall it and see if it works. If anyone has a similar problem, please let me know as soon as possible. I have a huge drumline project due, and if MuseScore Drumline does not work, I won't know what to do.
Thank you!

More Cymbal Sounds

I don't know about other people who use MDL but I think it would be great if cymbals had more options than just the six that are there. Some good ones would be:
- Crash chokes
- Hi Hat
- Tap chokes
- Sizzle sucks (also called splash chokes, sizz-ucks)
- Clicks

Examples of most of these are demonstrated in these videos:

Is there any chance that we can get more cymbal sounds in future updates of MDL?
