Xp stand-alone application is integrated to Ableton's environment, and works dynamically with each of the devices. As a user, its management in the workflow will be entirely transparent to you. It will open and close automatically.
It launches when an xp.visual is loaded in a Live project and takes a very minimal form of a 3d view monitor in which you can easily navigate.
It allows real-time visualization of the sound field and the position of sound sources in space.
On the audio aspect, it allows in Ableton Live (with max-for-live) to make dynamic and accessible for any regular Ableton users, independently of their knowledge of max-msp, the Ircam Spat~ library, the best library available for spatial audio.
XP standalone is included in XP bundle
