A Revolutionary New Way of Exploring Sounds and Making Beats

Note: This is the Lite version of XO. The full version of XO is also available. 

Your Universe of Sounds

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.

The perfect companion to your workflow.

As standalone, or in your favourite host - XO fits your workflow smoothly and seamlessly.


  • 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 2000+ hand-picked factory samples. No matter the music style or amount of sounds in your current sample collection, XO has you covered.
  • Perfect your groove: Sculpt the perfect groove with the curated Groove Templates, Nudge your patterns to boost raw urgency or funky sluggishness, and add life and dynamics to your beat with the powerful Accentuator.
  • Drag & drop: Drag and drop with ease into your own workflow. Tweaked or raw. Individual samples or the whole beat. Audio or MIDI.
  • Import/Export: your files: Both .wav and .aiff are supported. (.flac, .mp3, .ogg, and .wma files are only supported in the full version of XO)

New Features in XO 1.1

  • Playlists: Create, browse and organize your presets in genre, or project-specific Playlists.
  • New factory presets: More than 100 factory presets.
  • Live File System Monitor: The Live File System Monitor notifies you of any changes in the sample folders you've added to XO.
