I created the "Alesis-QS7_QS8.rgd" file in RG right before a
release, and managed to get it into the release. Was it 1.0?
Anyway, is creating the percussion definition analogous to that?
Where should I start to try to learn how to do this? I don't
mind tinkering a bit to see how things work.

I haven't looked there. MUP has a percussion clef. Maybe it's
best not to even look there tho, so as to avoid any copyright
infringement possibilities or appearances.
