Changing instrument of a pattern line

Hi,

I'm new to Hydrogen. I've read through the manual and I'm just starting to make some music.

Is there a way to change the instrument of a pattern line ? Or maybe to move a line between different instruments ?

I use a drumkit with several snare sounds, and I would like to test which one sounds better for a given riff. Ideally, I would like to retain all the information entered in the pattern editor (note positions/lengths but also velocity etc.) , just to try it with a different sample. Is this possible ?

Could someone confirm that there is no way to copy/paste the beats of one instrument to another (put them on a different line in the pattern editor)? Or to change the instrument which plays them (keeping them on the same line)?

Sorry to bump the thread. I didn't find the answer and I'd like to check if I should just forget about this feature or if it is hidden somewhere...

hi,

i'm afraid this is not possible currently

this feature request has been logged here http://www.assembla.com/spaces/hydrogen/tickets/221 so it is on the radar, i just have no idea when this will be implemented (if ever)

grtz
