I've just purchased some fantastic new samples, and I went to create a new drumkit with all the tasty new sounds I have, but I'm running into problems, specifically missing sounds. :(

I created a new folder, copied the kick and snare files in (just for starters), and created a new drumkit.xml file:

Tama Starclassic Maple Kit
DrumWerks/MerlinTKD
Samples created by DrumWerks; Hydrogen kit assembled by MerlinTKD

When I run Hydrogen and check the Sound Library, the new kit is there, showing two instruments - so far so good. When I load the kit, however, the kick and snare instruments so no files or layers! The content of the file is copied straight from the Yamaha Vintage Kit XML file, with the appropriate changes, and it works fine when loaded, so what am I missing or doing wrong?

Okay, I'm/ a doofus... I finally figured out what was wrong.

I had the folder name as Tama Starclassic Maple... but the drumkit name as Tama Starclassic Maple [i]Kit[/i]. Duh. Corrected the xml entry, all is right with the world again! ;)
