Hydrogen is an advanced drum machine for GNU/Linux ....
uh ?

let's break that down :
Hydrogen : is just a really cool name for a program
Advanced drum machine : it's a drum computer (no matter what they say ;-)
for GNU/Linux : well it's not just for Linux, there are Mac/Win ports

Last year i spent some time working on the manual and new site of Hydrogen.  I updated the manual and also wrote a case study about the hydrogen setup we use live-on-stage with our band Cocasse.
From time to time i dive into the code (and almost drown) but i mainly focus on the usability of Hydrogen.

not sure ...

if it's actually a good idea to start a blog ... lack of time would be the main reason for not doing it.
Still i feel like i should put down what i'm working on.  Not just so i wouldn't forget what i did ;-) but to be able to share it with whomever is interested in Audio, Linux and especially good quality and _usable_ linux audio.

Hope this will be of use to someone  :-)
