A max-for-live based system to create, perform, write or record true 3d spatial sound in Ableton live.
xP is using externals of Ircam Spat~ library, especially for the 3d space perception.
Whether you are an advanced user of the library or a novice, xP provides you with already wrapped devices that integrate Ableton with a dynamic and flexible architecture.
Choose among dozens of factory preset and iconic immersive audio setup.
Drop and save your own set-up and start building your own collection of presets.
Quickly load the right speaker configuration, whether your work from your studio or from an unexpected space.
The view is automatically launched when a project is created.
Customize the view and save your configuration as user preset.
Navigate the entire view with a virtual camera.
Use the view as a second screen, or even with a video projection.
Choose among a list of standard algorithms, and benefit from Ircam spat , the most complete spatial sound library for maxmsp and max-for-live.
Change on the fly and test which one is the most appropriate for the current set up and sound material.
Dynamic load and transparent configuration of the dsp chain within Ableton.
Drag and drop a xp4l.source device in Ableton and it creates instantly a sound source in the 3d space.
Create up to 16 sources (version 1.01), and immediately start to generate spatial sound.
Play sounds as clips, or route any other kind of audio inputs to the sources, whether it's a midi instruments, external audio, return or other tracks, they are sent to the spatial sound field.
Easily delete the sound sources, save & load project as standard Ableton project.
All devices parameters are full exposed to Ableton workflow.
Use Live popular features to control and interact with the devices, the sources and the sound field : automation, midi & key assignation.
From the basic need to the most experimental ones.
Accessible from the device xp4l.source, inside Ableton, use 4 modes of a generative engine to animate sources position in space.

Straightforward way to record your current multichannel audio stream as a multichannel file from Ableton.
Record the encoded stream for hoa (high order ambisonics) spatialization type.
...and playback the file !
