Lawrence wrote I wonder if there's an opportunity for 3rd parties to create a rules editor that would spit out those xml files?


That's what the Notion Editor does!
If you mean a better editor, I'd say that's not worth doing IMHO.

Also, there are way too many 3rd party vsti's to create a library of custom rules. And if there was a library of custom rules then an editor wouldn't be needed.

I guess you can say that's why they're called "Custom Rules".

martinkutschker wroteHow do you define correct?

Most drummers today interpret the X symbol as the Cross Stick articulation. It is what recent drummers have been using anyway.

martinkutschker wroteI've searched the Internet for the standard on drum notation but the only thing coming close to it was Weinberg's article for the Percussive Arts Society. Too bad he fails to mention cross sticks.

The problem is, there is no real standard for drum notation (yet). I'm not sure why this is. Many drum book authors from the 80s and 90s started using their own 'drum keys' which made things very confusing. Very simple example.. 5 drum books out of my collection have completely different sets of drum set notation.

I find "x" for cymbals is easier to read and separate them visually from drums that use the other note-heads and combinations.

Exactly, perhaps that's why it's the most widely used method of notating the cross stick technique.

Using "x" heads for hand & foot cymbals and then "o" heads for drums shells. It makes it easier to see which type of instrument you are reading very quickly.
