Hydrogen samples in ardour midi tracks

hi

I am in the process to move my workflow from using hydrogen drumkits directly into Ardour’s midi tracks.
Thanks to the help of plugins like LSP sampler I manage to load the drumkits and map the samples as midi notes into midi tracks in Ardour.
However the resulting sounds of the samples are “cut off” I can’t seem to gettting the full sound no matter if I max the velocity and all the parameters in the track.
I made sure to give the drum samples all of the tail within the plugin and they work fine when I test the sound however when I playback the sound I get a kind of “cut off” version of it.

The problem seems to be consistent using different drumkits and also using other sampler plugins.

Do you have any idea about where the problem could be?

Good day,

maybe this link will help:

I don’t know much about MIDI, so this is a shot in the dark. Did you set the note mode to “Percussive”? The default is “Sustained”, which I think would cause the note to stop as soon as its note duration ends rather than when the sample ends. Changes to Note Mode can be made by right-clicking on the MIDI track in Ardour’s editor view.

The MIDI tracks are indeed already set to percussive. Forgot to mention that this is Ardour 6.9.

I think the issue comes from the live processing Hydrogen does on drumkits, because in drumkits each sample is applied an envelope.
I never could get Hydrogen drumkit samples working directly in a generic sampler.
I suggest you use the DrMr plugin, which is made to play Hydrogen drumkits (yes I know it’s not maintained…) : GitHub - nicklan/drmr: An LV2 sampler plugin that (currently) plays hydrogen drum kits

Thanks.
Interesting I will take a look and try. FYI I am going to be away from audio workstation for next 10 days.
