xp4l : workflow

    xp4l is a fully integrated system designed to expand with simplicity Ableton Live potential toward the field of spatial sound performance. The goal of xp4l is to provide Ableton users with a flexible and simplified environment to create 3d audio projects.
    It is made of a free m4l suit consisting of 5 devices and a standalone application that users have to purchase.
    The project is partly based on Ircam Spat library, a max-msp object library unique for its ability to simulate virtual acoustic spaces. The project aimed as well to hybridize spatial sound work with a jitter context to offer new perspective in spatial sound design. Then, all the 3d part is handled through a 3d view (a jit.world context), which is kept dynamically instantiated with Ableton.
    With 176 patches/abstraction the project covers almost all areas of max through one standalone, 5 Ableton devices, and spreads over 4 instancing contexts (max/msp/jitter, ableton, ircam spat, max for live).

      Normally, the installation should not overwrite your preset folder, but it is better to save it manually just in case prior to update.
      Open ~/Library/Application Support/Xp copy the preset folder, install, check your presets, and if all is well, delete that copy.
