We first had a look at the UniWire technology at last years Music Messe. UniWire is a single cable solution for connecting the company's Receptor hardware plug-in player to a computer (Mac or PC) using Ethernet protocol and standard and off-the-shelf network peripherals. UniWire allows both audio and MIDI data to flow between Receptor and computer,as well as standard data, integrating with a host DAW program with no other interface devices required. Communication to and from the host computer is performed via a plug-in developed by Muse Research which automatically delay compensates between the systems. It is perfectly possible to play remotley located (in the same building of course) Receptors and their FX from a host DAW program, with very little latency.
UniWire is coming up for general release including an Audio Units version of the plug-in for Mac OS X users, should they wish to go native.
Muse Receptor is a dedicated, rack mounted plug-in player which runs approximately 85% of all known plug-ins using a high efficiency custom OS. This leads to very low latencies and high performance for audio instruments and effects. Muse run a successful artist program with many big name touring keyboard players choosing to run Receptor in a live situation. For an impressive list of whoâ€™s onboard, check out:
