There is nothing wrong with that of course, but it just doesnt seem like
the most efficient way to go.
On the other hand i am also _very_ much a fan of the plugin model rather
than individual apps that are glued together using some type of session
manager...
I'm no programmer, and i do realize that it takes more than a one-liner to

combine the effort that goes into various apps that all do more-or-less the
same thing ?

Firstly, yes, at some point I would like to have kit editing/creation avail=

To your second point, I agree that it's non-optimal to have to fire up =
hydrogen to make minor changes to kits and the like. =A0However, I still th=
ink DrMr improves the situation, as it sits nicely in your host, saves all =
your parameters, and doesn't require any external routing. =A0Of course=
if you're fine with setting up all the external routing and kit loadin=
g etc, you should just avoid DrMr all together, hydrogen is more fully feat=
ured and almost certainly more stable anyway, but the whole point of me wri=
ting DrMr was that I got sick of having to set up both my host and hydrogen=
for every track i wanted to open.

But yes, kit customization is in the pipeline, although behind getting the =
core solid and stable.

Hm, i'm sceptic about this point... This code duplication seems to be q=
uite an overhead. If you go into every detail of drumkit management, you en=
d up with re-writing a lot of hydrogen classes in plain C. Is that really w=
orth the effort?

Why not improve the drumkit editing abilities of hydrogen? Or create a dedi=
cated drumkit editor on top of hydrogen's codebase (imho, hydrogen is n=
ot really user-friendly enough when it comes to kit-creation...) ?
