Menlo Park, CA (January 20, 2009)–Muse Research has updated two models of its Receptor hardware plug-in players: the Receptor 2 Pro and Receptor 2 Pro Max.
The new models reportedly feature entirely new computational engines, including dual-core processors that are said to offer twice the power of the previous generation, new SATA-2 storage systems that offer three times more disc bandwidth, 10 times the networking speed, and 50 percent more memory that is twice as fast as before.
These improvements in the hardware are coupled with a new software foundation and are available from major music stores and online suppliers with a MAP price of $2,599 for the Receptor 2 Pro and $3,199 for the Receptor 2 Pro Max.
The models also feature updated factory sounds, including hundreds of presets based on the Plugsound Box collection of virtual instruments. This collection of keyboards, synths, GM sounds, drums, and Urban sounds and loops is now included with every standard Receptor for free.
Chris Halaby, CEO of Muse Research, says, “Musicians who play live or work in the studio need tools that are as dedicated to their music as they are. We conceived Receptor 2 Pro and Pro Max to be true musical instruments to run your plug-ins. This is the latest chapter in our quest to create the best tools possible for making music.”
