Receptor Update Expands Virtual Instrument Support


Muse Research and Development have introduced the new RECEPTOR OS V1.8 system software. Here's what they have to say about it...
In addition to a number of performance and stability improvements, RECEPTOR system software V1.8 now allows Spectrasonics Omnisphere and FXpansion BFD2 virtual instrument users to take full advantage of RECEPTOR 2's lightning fast processing power, super-low latency and renowned stability.
RECEPTOR system software V1.8 also offers increased support for Synthogy's Ivory pianos, GForce's M-Tron Pro, and PianoTeq 3 from Modartt. In addition, V1.8 supports all IK Multimedia guitar plug-ins, including AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal, AmpliTube Fender, and AmpliTube Duo, and includes support for the most recent Kontakt Player engine that gives access to a large number of sample libraries including those from Big Fish and Sonic Reality.
RECEPTOR 2 is the smarter, faster and better way to run these and many more virtual instruments and effects both live and in the studio. Musicians will be pleased with how great these instruments sound when they run on RECEPTOR 2.
"Our goal at Muse R&D is to have all the best virtual instruments and effects supported on the RECEPTOR platform," comments Chris Halaby, Muse Research and Development CEO. "Support for these important plug-ins is a step in that direction."
RECEPTOR 2, RECEPTOR 2 PRO and RECEPTOR 2 PRO MAX have gained wide acceptance with professional musicians worldwide. RECEPTOR 2 has joined the rigs of a wide variety of artists including Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, U2, P!NK, Depeche Mode, and many more. In addition, RECEPTOR 2 is being used in an ever-increasing number of theaters and film/TV composing studios.
