Hi all,

I'm working on a song with a friend but I can't share the h2song file with him. I saved the song to my desktop and emailed it to him but when he opens it, it is missing several patterns. Did I do something wrong? Forget to do something?

Can anyone help explain the process so that I can double check myself? 

Thank you in advance.

What exactly happens to the patterns? Do they just not show up on his pc? Or do they have no sound or sth. like ?

Thank you for your reply. I have nine patterns. I did not name or save them externally, so they are just numbered 1-9. When I send the file to him, he only gets 1-3 and everything else is blank. Also the patterns 1-3 that he gets are only partials including one or two of the sounds. 

We are both using Ubuntu 12.04 but the difference is he runs Ubuntu Studio and I am only runing Ubuntu with GNOME3. I don't know if this matters but I don't have any idea what the problem is. I will attach/send the h2song file if reading the xml will help. I've looked it over but I don't see the problem.

Hi!

That sounds weird :-/ The song file would be very interesting for me to debug this issue. Also, it would be nice if you could write a small bug report at out bugtracker: https://github.com/hydrogen-music/hydrogen/issues

Please include a link to song file and the exact version numbers of hydrogen which you're using!
Thanks a lot for your help!

Ok, I will do it.

First, I'm looking to make sure that I followed all of the instructions exactly before truly calling this a bug.

It's because Hydrogen probably uses direct filepaths, meaning if he doesn't have an exact copy of your folder structure, any samples or patterns that require certain samples will be removed, and only the basic hydrogen samples will exist in the song. I had the same problem, but I don't think there's really an easy way around this. Just export it and send it to him; That's the best way.
