Drum Keys

A basic drum key made up of three 'bars'

Drum keys are a special type of section in which note-stems and barlines are invisible. Drum keys have one 'beat' per bar. A drum key of all percussion in Musink is on the percussion hints page.

The basic steps to create a drum key are as follows:

  1. Click Project From the Menu Bar
  2. Select Add Drum Key
  3. Add notes in the normal way. If you run out of space, add more bars.
  4. Add text marks above or below those notes
  5. Delete remaining bars containing rests
