I'm getting this error when trying to start hydrogen:

[ERROR]  OssDriver      ERROR_IOCTL: unable to set BlockSize
[ERROR]  Hydrogen       Error starting audio driver

then the gui comes up with a messageBox "error starting audio driver".

any thoughts?

In order to send MIDI to Hydrogen, you need to connect this port to some input port (use 'aconnect -li' to see which ones are available).
