Work with Hydrogen songs and drumkits


use Audio::Hydrogen;

for -> $dk {
    say $;

There are also some vaguely useful examples in the examples directory.


This provides the facilities for creating and manipulating drumkit and song data of the Hydrogen drum software.

I originally wrote this with no other purpose than as a test for XML::Class so it may well be missing some features that you would like to see, but please see the examples for things that you can do with it.


Assuming you have a working Rakudo Perl 6 installation you should be able to install this with panda :

# From the source directory

panda install .

# Remote installation

panda install Audio::Hydrogen

I haven't tried this with zef but I have no reason to think it shouldn't work if you would rather use that.

Other install mechanisms may be become available in the future.


I'm sure this is almost certainly missing some useful features, and am quite open to any ideas that could make it more useful.

I'd also be delighted to hear about anything interesting you do with it.

Suggestions/patches are welcomed via github at


This is free software.
