hydrogen2drumkv1.py - Hydrogen to drumkv1 drumkit conversion tool

I just wrote a conversion script that allows drumkv1 to use Hydrogen drumkits. I thought some of you might find it useful :)

You can find it here: https://github.com/TuriSc/hydrogen2drumkv1.py/

The two samplers have a lot of different features and not everything translates well, but most parameters will work just fine.
I figured out all the conversion scales (pitch, panning, and so on), but I might have missed something so please let me know if you see any ways this script could be improved.

Hi,

I downloaded the hydrogen2drumkv1.py. Then extracted the py file to /home/user/bin (what is part of my PATH) and chmod'ed the file to make it executable.
As stated in the help file I then executed the following command:

hydrogen2drumkv1.py /usr/share/hydrogen/data/drumkits/Techno-1/ /home/user/drumkv1/test/

but nothing happens. No output, not even an error message. And no new file(s) in the destination folder. I also tried it with several other drumkits that came with hydrogen.
Is there something that I am missing? I have python installed.

The file formats in the drumkit dirs of hydrogen differ from flac over wav to aiff. I tried it all, but to no avail.
Does the conversion tool expect any special file format or some sort of compressed file?

Can anyone help?

Ok, I got it. The converter expects files ending with .h2drumkit
Found them on https://sourceforge.net/projects/hydrogen/files/Sound%20Libraries/Main%2...
