Hydrogen on Windows

Windows version related discussions


When i create my hard hitting breakdowns, the program automatically adjusts the volume, and it takes everything away from the brutal hits. Is there a way to turn this 'automatic audio adjust'off?



Hydrogen v.9.7 displays incorrectly

Hey all!

Been a long-time hydrogen user and I just got a new MSI workspace laptop. When I downloaded and installed the newest Windows build of Hydrogen all of the patterns and instrument tracks are extremely small and nearly impossible to work with.  I have attached a screenshot of what the program looks like on my machine.  Is there some option in the Preferences menu which I am not finding?  PLEASE HELP ME! I've been using Hydrogen for years and years and would be very sad if a little display malfunction kept from using this program.

Windows setup guidance for total newb?

Been a longtime member here, coming back from time to time, but going away frustrated after hours of trying to put this whole midi thing together. I have a PhD in electrical engineering but I cannot figure all this out to save my life.

I have a Windows laptop with a USB Uno Midi Interface and I'd like to be able to play my drum machine, capture the midi file from it, tweak it, and then be able to play the loops later, ideally during a performance.

0.9.7 beta2 Export & Save problem


I'm having a couple of problems with this software.

I'm unable to save projects (error message reads "could not save song")

Also, when I try to export projects, the loading bar reaches 100% and just stays there. The project doesn't get exported.
