Syncing Ardour with Hydrogen
After years of using proprietary software for music-production (and only music-production), i finally want to move to opensource.
Since i saw the big improvements in the last years, i know this won't be that hard anymore :-)
I want to use ardour for recording and mixing, but for live-routing as well. I'm working as live-soundengineer and like to use FX-plugins.
Now i'm trying to sync a Hydrogen-Project with Ardour. I don't want to record Hydrogen to Ardour. I just want to route the Hydrogen channels to Ardour, use some plugins on them and finally make an export.
With gladish/jack2 i've connected all outputs from Hydrogen to seperate inputs from Ardour.
I set Ardour to "JACK" and Hydrogen to "J. TRANS". This works perfect for recording. But when i just hit "Play" in either program, there is only silence but i see the transport is working in booth programs. Only if i stop playback, i hear the end of the samples from Hydrogen. If i activate recording on a track in ardour and playback, it indicates the input of signal, but doesn't send it to the master.
Is there a way to achieve what i'm trying to do? It would be nice to do this without the detour of recording it first to Ardour.
Thank's a lot in advance for your answer!
