I love it, I find it excellent for all kind of X0X-plastic-but-powerfull drum sounds. And the CPU hit is more like a CPU pat on the back.

Congratulations on the release, and thanks for a more than fair price!

Awesome device. No samples, variable noise, seed, a s***load of different algorihtms (even a brush mode for snare ... lol), velocity controlled parameters, light on cpu ... a no brainer for me. Will buy it next week when money arrives. Waited for this one for a very long time. Still testing the demo (with birds) and can't wait to get rid of them and use it in my productions. :)

Damn...payware? Thought it would have been cute to give a few drumkits for this to the users tonight. Catchy name for sure.

No offense, but I don't like the GUI. There are so many knobs and they look all the same, just two different sizes. It is a nightmare for graphical minds like mine :)

Funny how different people think about guis. Though I am not a big fan of "light coloured" guis this one works pretty good. There is not even one weak knob. Every knob is tied to some parameters that change the sound tremendously (in a nearly perfect way).

Btw I was thinking about how awesome this device would be with fake 3D rendered gfx (like the d16). Though it will cost minimum 50$ more because of it.

Seriously: this drum machine is the finest algorithmic one right now when it comes to Techno & House production. I bet D&B as well, have not tried it yet.

And it is NOT about the most acurate emulation of a x0x but different drum sounds with lots of charcter and "ooomph" based on the sound of those classic units.

Listen to the claps: so versatile and full in sound. With only both amp parameters and different decay/release & filter/reso settings you will get a heap of different sounding sounds. Oh boy, those claps can sound pretty damn wet. :)

Bong (even without a step sequencer but with algos instead of samples) reminds me so on the usabilty of the Redrum inside Reason. The whole velocity section can add so many varieties from subtle to obvious. And it's so dang fast to work with.

Will post some beats next week when birds are gone. :)

Quick tip: throw bootsies Thrillseeker LA unit on the drumbus and things starting to shine and breath. TsLA complements this unit so well. Don't get me wrong. This unit sounds awesome standalone but with that one it's like Bob Katz masters an already exeptional mix. Pure refinement.

And if you guys don't know this independent developer think about it that way: if you think valhalladsp stands for the finest reverb solutions on the market in that pricerange then xoxos is doing the same only with drums & percussion. You just have to read all his posts about "finding the perfect noise", strange HF peaks in old drum machines etc. Then you will know.

No shit sherlock!

I'm playing with this beast since a week and i must say that is wonderful!
Nice sound and workflow!
Only thing i miss ( but is related to my style ) is an Attack parameter for amp and pitch envelopes on all the parts.
Great work rurik!
thanks and all the best
