New server for downloading Hydrogen kits

Post by lfz »

Just open hydrogen, go into 'Import Library' add this URL as a source: https://musical-artifacts.com/hydrogen_drumkits.xml

After you update the list you should see 100+ hydrogen drum kits. These include:

* The AVL Drumkits
* Drumkits from SlackerMedia Linux Multimedia Sprint
* A few other random ones

Contributions are welcome, drumkits added to https://musical-artifacts.com/ with apps=hydrogen and a valid .h2drumkit file will automatically show up in the list.

Just a note here, there seems to be a bug in the latest stable Hydrogen where it has trouble fetching libraries from external servers. It works with the official drumkit list, but I've had trouble making mine work in this older version. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the xml I'm generating.

So anyway, for now you'll have to use the latest version of Hydrogen from git to get the drumkits from inside the GUI.

If you want to browse the drumkits on the site use this link https://musical-artifacts.com/artifacts ... created_at

I've posted this on the Hydrogen forums and hopefully a new version will be out soon.

You may add this drumkit to the list. I've recorded this drumkit about 2 years ago. Maybe it can be useful.

I only use the latest git and it still won't work.

Hey funkmuscle, try to be sure you have not pasted the URL in hydrogen with extra trailing spaces. This one is a bug on my part, the extra non visible characters create an url which is not the right one for the drumkits. Looking at the server errors logs I'm pretty sure this is what happened, I'll have it fixed soon, thanks for reporting.

Try it again now, if it still doesnt work try to provide me with more details and I'll try to figure out what's happening.

Either way just browse the website and get the drumkits from there if you can't make it work.

Better late than never, I've added your drumkit https://musical-artifacts.com/artifacts/385 to the list.

If you want to edit any info just register on the site and I'll transfer ownership of the artifact to your account. Thanks!

Not seeing the results, just empty list.

Anyway, I think it would be ideal to add this setting to Hydrogen defaults by submitting a patch upstream or at least see about including it in KXStudio builds or something…

The latest stable on kxstudio (0.9.6.*) has some quirk that I couldn't figure out and doesnt work with the list I'm generating, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my XML. The latest hydrogen from git works and has many new features, I'm not sure why it's not the official release yet.

Including the MA list in the newest releases is a good idea.

Hi everyone,

I'll see if i can spot the problem..
The latest hydrogen from git works and has many new features, I'm not sure why it's not the official release yet.
It also has some new interesting bugs ;-) But i suspect that it won't take long until a stable 0.9.7 release..
Including the MA list in the newest releases is a good idea.
I'm in doubt with this point :( Of course it is a good idea to provide more server's by default, but at the moment the legal situation is unclear for me. Would be necessary for the hydrogen team to guarantee that all kits on the default servers do not harm anyone's rights? If someone has experiences in that area, please speak up :)

This is phantastic.

It's just like the Guitarix integration all over again, Musical Artifacts extends its light all over the studio :) I'm holding my breath for a ZASFX mutation as well!
