collapse expand iconDescription

XO by XLN Audio is a fast, fun and inspiring virtual instrument and beat maker that will have you crafting beats in no time. XO allows you to explore your samples and one-shot drum sounds visually by using their spectral content to sort them by similarity in the XO Space. This will enable you to find your samples smoothly and seamlessly, regardless of where or how you store them. Even if your sound libraries are scattered all over your computer and external drives with vague file names, XO collects and sorts them all for you.

XO comes ready for action with more than 8,000 curated factory samples and over 200 inspiring presets. Drag and drop audio and MIDI into your workflow with ease when you are done exploring and tweaking. XO also integrates smoothly with samples and libraries from cloud-based sampling services such as Splice, Noiiz, Beatport, Looperman and Loopmasters.

The many search filters built into XLN Audio XO help you find what you’re looking for even faster. Quickly find that perfect snare, the kick with the right oomph, your dream hi-hat or the ultimate set of cymbals. XO’s powerful Live Filter Mode allows you to use the strength in XO’s random sample suggestions, but narrow the scope to your preference. For example, type in “808”, “trap” or “hip-hop” and only randomize samples that match that criteria.

XO’s interface focuses on playfulness and workflow. Quickly make and tweak your beat with XO’s playful and intuitive sequencer. Use the Accentuator to add dynamics and life to your beat. Dial-in the perfect drum beat with one of the Groove Templates. The Nudge function adds raw urgency or funky sluggishness to your drum patterns and MIDI. Use essential modifiers and effects like reverb, delay, pitch, filter, distortion or tone to add character to your beats.

Discover XO’s Playground Mode, where you can quickly explore endless variations to beats and sounds. Playground Mode is an infinite source for “happy accidents”—a fast way for beatmakers to find new angles, inspiration and strike creative gold. Step through different patterns or sounds, or hit the randomize button and let chance hit you with something new and exciting.
