Muse Research announces Receptor v1.2 Update

Muse Research is pleased to announce that the version 1.2 update for Receptor is now available in the updates section over at Plugorama (!

The version 1.2 software adds several new features including ADAT output support that increases the number of outputs to a total of ten, a revolutionary, high-speed plug-in loading technology called “Z-Load” (patent-applied-for) that dramatically reduces the amount of time required to load a plug-in, a powerful MIDI mapping feature with flexible support for keyboard zones and layers, dramatically improving Receptor’s functionality as a synth, sampler, and sound module, plus many more smaller enhancements.

Receptor is a portable, versatile, hardware VST plug-in player designed for performing musicians. Receptor is a 2U rack-mountable multi-timbral sound and effects module that runs standard VST instruments and effects. It combines the power of a computer with the ease-of-use, portability and reliability of dedicated synth and effects hardware.

Receptor’s intuitive, mixer-like architecture combines up to 16 different audio sources, which can be either internal VSTi instruments or external analog/digital inputs. Each source is then routed through its own inline effects matrix that allows three VST plugins to be configured in every possible parallel/series arrangement. From there, each source is sent to a dedicated mixer channel, where the sound can be further processed by sending it to two dedicated effects busses, each with another fully configurable VST effects matrix. Need more processing? There is yet another VST effects matrix on the master output, for mastering and sweetening effects.
