About XO

XO by XLN Audio is a unique beat-making & drum sample exploration tool. See our XO Review – a Revolutionary Intercosmic Way of Beatmaking by XLN Audio, “XO (Affiliate Link) by XLN Audio is a very advanced new way to deal with your large collection of drum sounds. On top of that XO includes an amazing collection of included drum sounds. The innovative way to quickly swap sounds out for similar sounding with the help of machine learning. Next, to audition the collection to confirm if it fits your needs and then drag-and-drop your midi pattern into the DAW is a huge time saver when you want to be creative and productive. XO (Affiliate Link) is worth the investment of any professional beatmaker and producer to allow us to move as fast as possible to keep up with the creativity flow. XO is the next generation for Drum Machine Synth and Drum Sequencing.”

XO collects all your one-shot drum samples and sorts them by similarity. Every single sample is represented by a colored dot in XO’s Space interface. Here you can sweep through your sounds seamlessly, regardless of file format or where they are stored. When you find something you like, XO allows you to browse similar-sounding samples easily.

XO comes with its own integrated sequencer and sound editor. Any sound you find in XO Space quickly loads into and updates your beat. Quickly tweak individual samples or the whole kit with built-in features like Sample Edit, Pan, Envelope, Pitch and EQ, and effects like Distortion, Delay, and Reverb. XO’s groove templates and accentuation tools allow you to modify and tweak your beats to perfection quickly. When you have created a groove or set of samples, drag & drop with ease straight into your DAW or OS as WAV or MIDI.
