Good job on thatone! I didn't realize hydrogen could send midi, now if 
it can send CC messages too somehow(for the hihat), you'll be able to 
have all functionality of the kit! that would be pretty golden..

> For the .lscp file I only used Salamander's "All.sfz" file, and I

> I haven't investigated completely, but the 2 .h2 files are there

> what I named them, and 2) I'm pretty sure the MIDI-out note for each 
> instrument is stored in the .h2song file, and not the .h2drumkit :(
> With any luck I'm not Pat Malone in my drum recording workflow, and 
> this will help others.
> Good luck!
