Drum Map / Note Names / Pitch Names

The drum map (some DAWs also call it note names or pitch names) will allow the DAW to display the actual drum names (Kick, Snare, etc.) in the MIDI editor instead of just the blank piano roll keys. This makes drum programming much more convenient. Here you can download the drum maps suitable for a few DAWs and also see instructions about what it looks like and how to import the drum map into your DAW:
