Hydrogen 1.1.0 beta 1 release & 20 years of Hydrogen

Post by mauser »

Hi everyone,

we're happy to announce the release of the first beta version of Hydrogen 1.1. You can find the Changelog and all downloads at GitHub.

But there is more: ca. 20 years ago, on April 19th 2001, the tarball of Hydrogen 0.1 has been uploaded to SourceForge. So in these days, Hydrogen celebrates its 20th birthday!

During those 20 years, Hydrogen established a large userbase and became a popular cross-platform application which is present in dozens of Linux distributions, software download portals and OS X/Windows software collections. The use-cases for Hydrogen became more and more diverse in the last time.
People use it on stage as a drum machine for live performances, as a companion for guitar or other music practice , as a prototyping-tool to create drum tracks or as replacement for their e-drum modules.

But there were also multiple times when the project was already declared 'dead', when development activities nearly came to a halt and the future of the project was not clear. Luckily enough those periods were always short and in the last year, Hydrogen development was more active then it has been for a long time. With an up-to-date manual, a modern cross-platform CI service and backed by a new team the project is well prepared for the future.

I would like to use this occasion to thank everyone who has contributed in all those years, no matter in which role the contribution has been made and how large the contribution was. Special thanks go out to Comix, who has created Hydrogen and has build the foundation of today's project.
Let's have another 20 years with new ideas, interesting contributions and a lot fun.

Best regards & cheers,
Sebastian

I first used Hydrogen in about 2005, and was very impressed with it even then. Thanks for all of your work to make such a useful tool. I have used it in many recordings over the years

Use it off and on. Does it now respond to MIDI Volume change? It was always an annoyance that it was the only thing I had to set by hand, so couldn't realistically change it during a perfomance.

When I started with a new music project in 2014 (after a couple years hiatus) I picked up Hydrogen for my drummer duties and use it ever since.

Recently I switched to Drumgizmo and for one track programmed the drums directly in Ardour but it was really painful. So I found a workaround in his forum to use Hydrogen for it again and I can keep going as usual now.

It probably doesn't fit in the concept of Hydrogen to use drum plugins as instruments directly, but anyway, I'll still keep using it as I'm really happy with it after all.

Could Hydrogen get a plugin system that would allow me to use a software synthesizer for drum programming? That way, I won't have to launch ZynAddSubFX just for drums and I don't have to fiddle with MIDI notes for triggering drums in ZASF! :) Why not :D

I would like to feature Hydrogen around a 3:00 mark in my video that I made 9 years ago!

Hydrogen is the first FLOSS music program I really understood. Without it I would not be here. Long live Hydrogen :D
