If you want to get your Hydrogen drum tracks into Ardour, one way of doing it is to record the Hydrogen outputs. You can use either the stereo output or the track specific outputs. This example uses a stereo sampled drum kit that is exported into Ardour as mono track(s). This is done by using the left outputs and panning the channels fully to the left.
Recording individual outputs to separate tracks
Ardour inputs are connected to track specific outputs (track_out_1_kick, track_out_2_snare, track_out_8_crash). Each output is recorded on a separate mono track.
Recording several outputs to one track
Ardour input is connected to track specific outputs (track_out_2_snare, track _out_4_snare, track _out_5_snare). Each output is recorded on the same mono track.
Recording master output allowing volume adjustment
Ardour input is connected to master output (out_1). Output is recorded on the same mono track. By using the master output it’s possible to adjust the output volume. You can use solo (s) to export a single track or mute (m) for several.
