RECEPTOR 2: "Totally" Portable and "Komplete"
Many of the world's biggest bands and most famous artists use Receptor to run their synths, samplers, and effects both in the studio and on the road. That's because Receptor packs massive amounts of power into a 2-rack space box that weighs only 18 pounds. The RECEPTOR 2 delivers even more power than the original, yet has a MAP price of only $1999 US, meaning you can have optimal performance for your virtual instruments and effects without breaking the bank.
If you crave more sounds, you can configure your RECEPTOR 2 with either the IK Multimedia Total Workstation Bundle or the Native Instruments KOMPLETE 5 bundle pre-installed and authorized, significantly expanding the range of sounds at your disposal, all while saving you a bundle of time and money. Clearly RECEPTOR 2 brings an entirely new dimension of how much music creative power you can cram into a compact and portable package.
"Technology never stands in one place for very long. The significantly increased power of the RECEPTOR 2 starts where our previous Receptor Pro left off, which means you can run more plug-ins and play more voices at a lower price point," comments Chris Halaby, CEO of Muse Research. "RECEPTOR 2 is designed to help a musician make more music in the studio or on stage."
