When can I have one of my own?

The XOXX operates a little bit like a music box. Eight rotating discs are marked with X and Os to signify where magnets can be attached. As the discs rotate, the magnets protruding from the discs activate samples, similar to the way combs pluck the pins on a music box.
Each disc is assigned a specific sound, so you can layer up to 8 different beats at a time. When and how frequently you hear a sound depends on where you place the magnets.

A slider in the upper left corner determines how quickly the discs spin, which correlates to beats per minute displayed under the motor. All the discs come with a volume slider and effects knob. When you’ve finished your perfect beat, you can lift the discs off the dock and replace them with a fresh set.
XOXX makes the creation of music a tangible process—and in some ways a more understandable one.
