Hya,

Newbie here. Can anyone please tell me how to activate the clock?

Also Hydrogen crashes frequently on windows 8.1 . Sometimes my saved songs won't open. Is there a way to fix it please?

I've used Hydrogen on Windows 7, Ubuntu 14, and Bodhi Linux 3.0.0 on 3 different laptops, and I have never yet been able to make that clock work. 

I can't really address your Win8.1 problem, but I will tell you that when I have trouble with Hydrogen, or with Audacity, for that matter, I can sometimes fix it by unplugging and replugging my USB audio interface. 

As an open-source and free-of-charge project, Hydrogen is pretty amazing, in spite of some little drawbacks. 

I hope this is helpful.

are you guys using Jack or an other audio server ?

seems that the clock only works when you use jack

that said : if you are serious about audio i highly recommend getting to know Jack

Many thanks for your replies everyone. I do agree that Hydrogen is a cool sequencer and enjoying composing African drum rythms with it.

At the moment It is used with just my laptop and have to admit i'm still in 'newbie' mode. The issue with opening files seems to have gone but I have no clock even in 'Jack' mode. Maybe it only works on platforms other than Windows 8.1?.
