Hey, I have Hydrogen ver .97 (or something close to that) and I'm running Pro Tools 12.4 on a Mac, so it would have to be AAX format. Is it possible to use Hydrogen as a plugin or use it in some way within pro tools? I'm not sure if Hydrogen is a standalone app or plugin as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi!

No, it is not possible to use Hydrogen as a plugin.

Is it possible to patch the output of the Hydrogen app into a DAW? This question might be a bit premature, as I haven't really looked too deep into the preferences. I'm away from my computer at the moment; I won't be able to check 'em out 'til I get back later tonight. Thanks.

I was in the preference menu trying to find the section where u can select an output for the sound, but it appears that either no such feature exists, or you can only choose the "Core MIDI" output, which I'm not that familiar with.. PT has a software based I/O for situations like this, called something like Pro Tools Aggregate I/O. I was hoping that I could make this the output setting in Hydrogen and the input setting in PT.. sending the sound over that way. Is there a way to perform this task? Maybe I missed something in the Preferences. Thanks.
