Example projects

After installation you may want to check out some of the example projects to make sure PraxisLIVE is working correctly and check out some of its features.

The Examples section on the Start Page of the application will install the examples as templates you can use, or you can download manually from

Running examples

  • Ensure the examples are installed. Use the section on the Start Page, which can be reopened using Window/Start Page in the main menu if closed.
  • Open the new project wizard using the New Project button in the main toolbar.
  • Browse the available example templates (use the arrows to explore sub-categories) and select the one you want to try; click Next.
  • Select a project name and location; click Finish to create the new project.
  • Highlight the project in the Projects tab, then click Run in the main toolbar (or choose Run from the popup menu on the project).
  • Editors for the various (*.pxr) files that make up the project will open as the example is run.
  • To stop the project, use the Clean button (or choose Clean in the project popup menu).


PraxisLIVE v5, unlike earlier versions, uses a hub per project, and so allows multiple projects to be run at once. A project is still active if tabs are still open or roots appear in the Hub Manager, even if all windows have been closed. Make sure to Clean the project to fully release all resources / extra processes.
