    Hi All

    I am looking for a list of the general MIDI extended percussion instrument
    key assignments. I have a list of the original assignments but have been
    unable to find a copy of the extended percussion instrument list.

    There is no GM extension for percussion. Any extension beyond GM is
    up to the maker of the extension. The two most common extensions are
    Roland and Yamaha -- the specs for them are in their Roland GS (Sound
    Canvas series) and Yamaha XG synth books/instrument maps.

    Thanks
    That clarifies things. No wonder I couldn't find the spec.
