Muse Research releases RECEPTOR VIP - Hardware Virtual Instrument Player

Muse Research

Muse Research and Development has started shipping their entirely new RECEPTOR VIP dedicated hardware plug-in player. This new software-powered music instrument features a simple hardware interface for loading and manipulating virtual instruments and effects at a gig, combined with an entirely new graphical user interface that lets you edit and program virtual instruments and effects by attaching a mouse, monitor and keyboard. Featuring stereo inputs and outputs, along with a full size MIDI input and a footswitch for changing presets, the RECEPTOR VIP has a MAP price of $1599 US and is available now worldwide.

Read the rest of the press release below:

Bringing RECEPTOR performance to a new price point
Muse Research is well known amongst touring and studio professionals, with their RECEPTOR 2+ Pro product line being used by some of the world's biggest bands, most elaborate stage productions, as well as on numerous TV shows and films. With its rock-solid performance, minimal latency, and flexible programming interface, the RECEPTOR 2+ Pro and Pro MAX models remain the standard of the industry for mission-critical applications. Now, the Pro models are joined by a more-affordable little brother in the RECEPTOR VIP, joining the Peavey MuseBox to make high-performance virtual instruments and effects available to all musicians across a wide-range of price points.

A Dream Come True for Performing Musicians...
The RECEPTOR VIP is a dream come true by making the power of RECEPTOR not only more affordable, but also much easier to use, thanks to the new front panel hardware interface, and an entirely new "rack-style" graphical user interface. These two interfaces work together to make it a breeze to select sounds using the exclusive SoundFinder feature, as well as programming your own unique presets from scratch.

The RECEPTOR VIP is perfect for the performing musician who wants to utilize cutting-
edge virtual instruments like Native Instrument Komplete 8, Synthogy Ivory 2, IK Total Workstation, and hundreds of others. The RECEPTOR VIP makes these virtual instruments perform their best thanks to the RECEPTOR VIP's custom OS and application software that lets the 3GHz dual-core processor focus all its attention on running the virtual instruments with maximum stability and minimum latency.

Perfect for solo performers
Guitarist and singers will love the fact that RECEPTOR VIP has front panel combi-jacks with XLR and 1/4-inch inputs for microphones and guitars. In fact, for many musicians, RECEPTOR VIP is all they'll need to sound their best since the vast assortment of virtual instruments and effects that are built in. You can play keyboards and process vocals at the same time as well thanks to the flexible architecture of the system.

The bundled software includes over 4GB of pristine sampled sounds in the MusePlayer sample player, powered by the UVI engine. Additionally, synthesizers from Applied Acoustics, Camel Audio, U-he, ForeFront, and more round out the diverse sound palette, and that's just the beginning.

That's because every RECEPTOR VIP comes with Komplete 8 pre-installed in demo mode, ready to activate with a license code, opening up an immense range of sounds and musical possibilities. RECEPTOR VIP is also available with Komplete 8 pre-authorized and ready to make music, right out of the box.

On the effects front you get ReValver HP guitar amp modeling, along with WaveArts MasterVerb 4 reverb and TrackPlug 4 channel strip processing, Camel Phat and Camel Space delay / filter effects, and many more, making it arguably the most versatile effects processor available... and that's just with the software that is included with your purchase. In fact, the retail value of the software bundled with RECEPTOR VIP is over $900, making it a superior value.

"The RECEPTOR VIP is perfect for anyone looking for a comprehensive solution for using virtual instruments and effects live" comments Matt Christiano, CEO at Muse Research. "RECEPTOR VIP makes it possible to exploit the immense power of the world's finest virtual instruments and effects, all in a portable, easy-to-use package".
