The PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL audio interface is now included, standard, with Muse Research's new Receptor TRIO and Receptor QU4TTRO hardware-based plug-in players, providing up to 18 audio inputs and outputs. In addition, Muse Research now offers the PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL interface as an option for its Receptor VIP plug-in player, giving the VIP multi-channel input and output capabilities. The Receptor TRIO and QU4TTRO are now shipping, as is the software update that allows the Receptor VIP to utilize the AudioBox 1818VSL interface.
The AudioBox 1818VSL's I/O functionality is tightly integrated into Receptor's new rack-style graphical user interface. AudioBox I/O is labeled as it appears on the interface, minimizing confusion and improving workflow. In addition, all of the default audio assignments in the Receptor graphical user-interface are reflected in the AudioBox 1818VSL hardware. “The result is that the Receptor acts as if it was designed for the AudioBox 1818VSL and vice-versa, letting you get on with the task of making music instead of fussing over your I/O,” explains PreSonus promotional material.
With eight channels of analog input and outputs, eight channels of ADAT optical digital input and output, and S/PDIF stereo I/O, the Receptor coupled with an AudioBox 1818VSL can adapt to nearly any performance or recording scenario. Once the AudioBox 1818VSL is configured with input and output assignments, users can save and recall each configuration as presets inside the Receptor. Even better, the AudioBox 1818VSL works seamlessly with Receptor's exclusive Live Mode, so users can organize preset configurations as a virtual set list and then instantly change the sounds, effects, mix levels, and I/O routings as required for each song in the set. The Receptor allows users to change the presets via the front-panel interface, via MIDI program changes, with an external footswitch, and even wirelessly, using a mobile device such as an iPad or iPhone.
