i created this drum kit and am submitting it to hydrogen.
included in the kit are 27 sounds: 5 djembe and 3 dunun. i would love
feedback or suggestions on how this drum kit could be improved.

i'm curious about how to implement west african microtiming
( in hydrogen.

also included are 2 demo songs using this kit. "Dunugbe" a 6/8 and "Moribiyasa Sankaran" a 4/4.

This forum softwre is very picky when it comes to attachments. It allows only .tar .gz .tar.bz2 .bzip2 .lzo .zip .flac .ogg .mp3 .png .jpg files which are not bigger then 100KB.

I can put it on the sourceforge server and add it to the other hydrogen drumkits, but this would require that you release it under a gpl-like license. You can send me your kit to if you like to publish it under such a license and i will host it at along with the other drumkits on sourceforge.
