    For those who hate softwareplug-ins... here is a different approach:


    Receptor is the ultimate hardware solution for a software crazy world.

    Looks interesting, eh??? Hmmmm....Need some more info however.

    I have a friend that is going to AES today, I will call him and tell him to go check it out.

    Is this nifty little box also available in a keyboard version with a whole bunch of controls? If so: Where can I order it?? , Now that would be a useful thing.

    This receptor does look interesting, but if you'd ask me its a 'halfway' solution. I really can't imagine this thing making my life easier. In the end, you're stuck with a GUI on yer computer monitor anyway. What does this thing do that I can't do in Cubase?

    I suppose it's a rackmount that will be whatever you want it to be (assuming you have the VST in question). I could see it being extremely useful in Live situations as an additional box for guitar processing, vocal FX, etc without needing to lug an actual PC onto the scene.

    Yeah, to a certain extent you're right falkon, but I can use my laptop for the same thing. I use an USB soundcard and an evolution mk361 and I am able do play all the VST instruments I want live and apply all the effects I want (in fact, that's exactly what I did in the last string of gigs I had). It is also possible to use the laptop as an fx loop, no problem. The only advantage I see of this receptor thingy over a laptop is stability, although I have never had a single crash in the entire lifetime of this killer machine of mine ;) . If I did, I wouldn't have dared to go on stage with it....

    Anyway, I would only see a substantial advantage if the thing would have keys and controllers. In that case, you could turn that single keyboard into any (set of) badass synth(s) you'd wish. :p I don't see why this wouldn't be possible...

    In the end, it's all just a matter of opinion though. Whatever works for whoever.

    Receptor is Muses answer to the UAD1. It's a hardware vst unit. So it's main goal is to lighten the load for your cpu. If you don't find that inticing, apperently you have plenty of cpu power. Personally I would welcome anything that will allow me to add more tracks and effects without bogging down my computer.

    thnx hueseph

    I like the way you described it compared to UAD

    I showed the link to buddy online with lots of synths and he already had one ,,

    any latency issues using one ?

    and i guess i didnt read much on it, buit will it take any VST or is it proprietary to their unit ?

    thanks again

    Latency should not be an issue. The receptor will take most vsts. Some work better than others. link removed has a rating system that shows compatability with the receptor.
