i followed the steps located at

I got the directory to show up in the sound library under system drumkits, but when i click any of the 32 samples i get the following errors.

First windows tells me this.


Assertion Failed!

Program: X:\Program Files\Hydrogen.exe
File: src\Instrument.cpp
Line: 122

Expression: pDrumkitInfo

For information on how your program can cause an assertion failure, see the Visual c++ documentation on asserts

(Press Retry to debug the application - JIT must be enabled)

Abort Retry Ignore


Also, Hydrogens command prompt tells me this...


SoundLibraryParl [on_DrumkitList_itemActivated] YamahaVintageKit, instr:Closed Hat
LocalFileMng [getDrumkitDirectory] drumkit "YamahaVintage" not found
Local FileMng [loadDrumkit] Load Instrument; Data file YamahaVintageKit/drumkit.xml not found.
MainForm [onAutosaveTimer] [onAutoSaveTimer]
SongWriter [WriteSong] Saving song hydrogen-autosave.h2song


Also the 32 sound clips are named from 1 - 10, then just numbered from 11 to 32.

Im going to continue poking around at things until i find a solution, just thought i should mention where im at so far.

Reinstalled it from scratch, works perfectly now, go figure.
