XLN Audio has launched a new software application and plugin that offers a revolutionary new way of exploring sounds and making beats. XO collects all your one-shot drum samples and sorts them by similarity in the XO Space.
Seamlessly sweep through your sounds, regardless of where they are stored. When you hear something you like, have a look around. You might find something even better close by.
Create your beat with the playful and intuitive sequencer. Sculpt the perfect groove with the Accentuator and the curated Groove Templates. Colour and fine-tune your sounds with essential effects and creative modifiers.
Explore unlimited variations to beats and sounds in Playground Mode. Tap into an endless source of happy accidents by swapping or randomizing patterns and sounds – one by one, or all at once.
- Load your own samples: Duplicates. Vague file names. Folders in different locations or on external drives. XO sorts them all – regardless of where and how they are stored.
- Find your sound faster: Narrow the scope with XO’s powerful filters and search functionalities to find what you’re looking for even faster.
- Ready for action: Factory Samples & Presets – Get a flying start to your beatmaking with XO’s inspiring presets and 8000+ hand-picked factory samples. No matter the music style or amount of sounds in your current sample collection, XO has you covered.
