don't see any MIDI paks @ jrr?

actually I don't see MIDIpaks at any of the online retailers, does it mean I can buy them only at XLN store?

I finally pulled the trigger on XO during this sale. Although it is over, I'm sure there will be another during BF (probably better than what I paid). I just wanted to give my quick thoughts on XO. First, I would NOT pay full price but for around $100 it's a good deal. Battery 4 is much deeper as far as manipulating with FX goes but XO has grooves built in for inspiration which is invaluable these days but also has the effect of making us all more lazy and sound the same by not learning how to lay our own beats. I don't see it as a replacement to my other drum machines like Battery or Breaktweaker etc... but it's a nice addition. One of the OBVIOUS benefits is the browser and the ability to find sounds quickly. Even if you don't use XO for making beats, using it to find sounds you forgot about is very cool.  There are a lot of things to like, especially the fact that it is easy and intuitive to learn. One major downside but not a deal breaker is that the built in grid is only 16th note capable. You would think a software at this price would give you the option to go to 32nd notes or more. You can, however just drag the midi to your DAW and work around this limitation that way. For me, the main draw was the ability to let it organize my sounds so I didn't have to and access to more drum patterns since I'm not a beat maker.

I'm not a beat maker either, so I really enjoy using XO and I can highly recommend getting all the drum samples from here: https://samplesfrommars.com/  

 

Good resource. I have to admit that XO does make me feel better about the samples I've collected over the years that haven't been used much. Now I'm willing to consider adding more drum samples knowing that they won't get lost in a black hole anymore.

There are two patterns, A and B, both of which contain 16 notes so you have effectively a 32 note grid. If you activate the FOLLOW button, XO will automatically update the GUI to show the current pattern. Also, the Chain switch can be set to either OFF, AB or AAAB which makes it possible to chain the A and B patterns up to 64 notes.

Your misunderstood me. I'm not talking about the number of notes but the duration of the notes. The grid falls on a 16th note pattern so if you want 32nd fills then you have to use your DAW.

Sorry, I hadn’t had my morning coffee yet. Yes, you are correct that there is no 1/32 note grid resolution.

XO's good for inspiration - I feel it's missing 'keyswitches' though, for playing different patterns. I also feel a little limited by only having 8 instruments per instance. But I guess that's where exporting to MIDI helps.
