Without that, I think all of the hats you'll get from Hydrogen will be 
closed hats (well, apart from the pedal hat, which is on its own key), 
since you need to send a CC value to get the semi-open or fully-open hats.

Yep, sending CCs works fine in Ardour 3. It shouldn't be a problem for 
any of the other sequencers around (Qtractor, seq24, Rosegarden, OOM2, etc.)
