I cannot get Hydrogen to reliably have sound output. I am using:
- Linux Mint 17.1
- the latest Hydrogen from the PPA (RC2)
Hydrogen is set to use ALSA at hardware address 0.
cat /proc/asound/cards tells me:
0 [PCH ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
HDA Intel PCH at 0xd0810000 irq 107
The vast majority of the time, Hydrogen simply does not appear in the list of applications sending sound to ALSA, even when it is actively looping a click track or basic pattern. I have gotten sound output exactly one time with these settings, then restarted Hydrogen and came back to no sound output. I have had output 0 times with auto for the sound driver selection.
I currently have a terminal window, this browser window and Hydrogen open so there should be no conficts with anything else using sound, yet ALSA and Hydrogen do not seem to know that each other exist.
