- Drag and drop wav files from XO to DAW uses extra space on your precious C drive (please help me if I am missing anything here)
ctrl+drag directly from the space (or raw file in export menu) should only render new files if they're from the XO stock library. I expect they're likely encrypted in some way that can't be directly accessed by the DAW, so it has to make a new .wav

I explained this a couple posts above. For drag and drop to work, there needs to be a file so the DAW can load it. It can't pick it up directly from the system clipboard.

Thanks, but I observed that it is not the same case for all samples. Some samples are getting put in the Documents folder when dragging to DAW whereas some (from any of my NI Expansions) get dragged to the DAW directly from the Expansions folder. Note that all my samples are in the same partition of the hard drive. So, since every sample is actually located in a folder on the hard drive, I wonder why this difference in behaviour.
Never imagined we would get to play with toys in adulthood. :)

Make note if they are processed in any way or raw. 1 cent of pitch or 0.1 db will require it to be rendered.

I think that could be the reason.

Love this but the sequencer really needs new features. It's my go-to at the moment. Layers would be great.

So I'm extremely annoyed. I fired up XO today and all of my presets are gone. My sample folders in XO are out of wack too. It looks kind of like the folder setup I had when I first got XO instead of how I had it more recently. I didn't change anything with my system so I'm kind of pissed. Does anyone know what I can do? Or at least how do I back up my settings and stuff to prevent this in the future?

Edit: It seems that updating the XLN online installer fixed the issue.

If you need to backup old presets/settings, you can find them here: C:\Users\~\Documents\XO

I guess they are cooking something but will not release until Algonaut Atlas throw a new version with sequencer + goodies.

Meanwhile XO just received a nice update. Now at 1.2.
I know it is still missing things requested, but I am confident there's lot more coming.

Hopefully we won't have to wait another 4 months.

As long as COVID-19 continues, who knows. ;)

Yeah, nice looking update - I often want to keep auditioning after 15 variations. Filter responsiveness looks good too.

Yep, seems it does this automatically, and does it pretty well. I let XO scan a massive directory that contains drum hits, but also loops, long sound effects and all kinds of random audio files, and XO pretty consistently picked only the actual drums. It included some single-shot sound FX that kinda sound like drums (footsteps, etc), but then, they might actually be useful in a drumkit. :)
