The software offers a revolutionary way of organizing and browsing samples.
With XO, XLN Audio wanted to turn the monotonous and uninspiring search for the perfect sound on its head. XO makes it fun, fast and inspiring to create beats again, filled with creativity and unexpected happy accidents. Just like music-making should be.
“XO is all about providing a fun, smooth and inspiration-filled experience when finding sounds and working with beats. This update continues to deliver on that promise and adding nice new features!”
Lars Erlandsson, Product Manager & Co-founder of XLN Audio

Online disk monitor
The Online Disk Monitor notifies you of any changes in the sample folders you’ve added to XO, instantly re-scans and updates smoothly with the click of a button.
Besides the previously supported .wav and .aiff formats, you can now add .flac, .mp3, .ogg, and .wma files to XO. Browse your sounds in XO Space fast and smoothly, regardless of file format or where they are stored on your computer.
XO makes sample browsing a quick and fun part of the creative process. This update enhances your beat production workflow ever further. XO focuses on having fun, working at the speed of inspiration and creating stellar beats!
XO by XLN Audio is a unique beat-making & drum sample exploration tool. Like all XLN Audio software, XO was created to make music production faster and more fun, without compromising the quality of the output.
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. Now 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. There might be something even better nearby!
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 build-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 quickly modify and tweak your beats to perfection. When you have created a groove or set of samples, drag & drop with ease straight into your DAW or OS as WAV or MIDI.
