Like you can know, Timidity has a basic mapping of 47 notes
- 46 if we count the two kicks: Acoustic Bass Drum (bda) and
BassDrum1 (bd) for one - which follows (I think) the General Midi
For Hydrogen there are only 32 notes available in a drumkit
which begin from c1 to a4 (I'm not sure if I recall right)
Well. Now you have started Hydrogen.
And then Rosegarden for instance.
You have checked out your connections in qjackctl (Alsa and audio)
for me in Alsa
3:out1-General MIDI Device -> Hydrogen Midi-in
Hydrogen Out_L and Out_R -> system
and don't forget in the Hydrogen's pattern editor to press the
little icon - a red 0 in the middle of panel RECORDING - it becomes
Start your Lilypond file. You listen to your file.
But depending of your midi file and your drumkit you are surprised with
Yeah! Sometimes it's funny.
Because there isn't a whole correspondence beetween the General Midi of
your Lilypond midi file and the Hydrogen drumkit.
If you're interested I've made a drumkit in two parts (in fact 2
drumkits ) for Timidity
Timidity-part1 = 32 notes
Timidity-part2 = 14 remaining notes
and a conversion of the timidity's samples in wav.
It's a good start before you improve the quality of the samples.
I assume you know how to install a drumkit.
I'll can put them on my site for some days. (~7 Mo)
