San Jose, CA (June 7, 2013)—Muse Research & Development has unveiled its Receptor Qu4ttro and Receptor Trio, the latest additions to the company’s line of hardware plug-in players.
With the addition of these two products, Muse can accommodate recording engineers and musicians that want to run popular virtual instruments and effects software in a high-performance, self-contained device.
Receptor Qu4ttro is designed for studio applications, film and TV composers, and touring bands wishing to simultaneously process keyboards, guitars, and/or vocals. It is a fourth-generation Receptor, powered by a 3.9GHz (peak) Quad-Core Intel processor and is equipped with 16GB of RAM and a voluminous 2TB 7200 RPM hard drive (or optional 256GB or 512GB SSD).
Receptor Trio features a Quad-Core Intel processor, 8GB RAM, and a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive (or optional 256GB or 512GB SSD).
The Receptor Qu4ttro and Receptor Trio feature TetraCore technology, which prioritizes musical tasks to optimize resources for maximum performance with four CPU cores. Supporting the new TetraCore processing engine is a new 64-bit operating system featuring Intellibridge technology to provide simultaneous support for 32- and 64-bit plug-ins. Users can run large, multi-gigabyte sample libraries that occupy more than 4GB of RAM while still running 32-bit plug-ins at the same time. When working in Live Mode, users can use extra RAM for preloading virtual set lists and moving from preset to preset without waiting for large presets to load.
Included plug-ins with the Receptor Qu4ttro and Trio include pianos, synths, guitar amp models and vocal harmonizers. too, The new models also now ship with Native Instrument’s Komplete 9 and Komplete 9 Ultimate collection of sonic tools for production, sound design and live performance.
Both the Receptor Qu4ttro and Receptor Trio integrate with the bundled PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL 24-bit/96K USB 2.0 Recording Interface. This pairing provides both models with support for four times the analogue I/O of their predecessors, with eight analogue inputs and outputs, eight ADAT optical digital inputs and outputs, a stereo S/PDIF digital input and output, and digital word clock output for integration with other digital audio devices.
The new models also compliment the existing entry-level Receptor VIP.
