Total Workstation Rack powered by RECEPTOR 2: This configuration, available exclusively through IK Multimedia, features the entire Total Workstation Bundle pre-installed and authorized on your RECEPTOR 2. You'll love the incredible range of sounds you get from Sample Tank 2, Sonik Synth 2, Sample Moog, Sample Tron, and the Miroslav Strings... in addition to the bonus plug-ins Amplitube Duo and Ampeg SVX Uno. These plug-ins all sound great and load instantly... it's the ultimate ROMpler!
RECEPTOR 2 SPIRIT: This special version of RECEPTOR 2, available exclusively through Sweetwater, for the Worship market. This version of Receptor is similar to the RECEPTOR 2 with Komplete Inside with the addition of hundreds of megabytes of custom sounds by the Sweetwater Sound Design team, and hundreds of presets designed to cover the needs of virtually any worship team, modern or traditional.
Many of you have chosen to upgrade your old Receptor (regardless of vintage) to the new amazingly powerful RECEPTOR 2 PRO or PRO MAX... and the reviews have been great! More power! More sounds! More polyphony! More music!
Upgrading is simple: just visit the MuseResearch.com website, click on UPGRADES, and enter in some information about your Receptor. Basically you have the option of upgrading to a RECEPTOR 2 PRO (500GB hard drive, 2.53GHz dual core processor) or the RECEPTOR 2 PRO MAX (1000GB hard drive, 3.0 GHZ processor). Upgrades include an entirely new motherboard, heat sink, cooling fan, processor, RAM and hard drive.
You can choose between a standard drive, a drive with KOMPLETE 5 pre-installed, or a drive with IK Multimedia Total Workstation Bundle installed. If you don't own either of these two packages, we can add NI's Komplete 5 to your Receptor for a mere $499, or add the IK Multimedia Total Workstation Bundle for just $499! These special bundle offers are for a limited time only, so don't delay!
Own other large libraries that you want installed? We can do this for you too as well, but you'll have to prove you own the stuff before we can install it. You can even upgrade to the latest cosmetics with the optional RECEPTOR 2 front panel option so that your unit is as new on the outside as it will be on the inside.
Or, consider doing a trade in! A lot of customers have told us that it would be preferable for them to just send in their old unit and get a new unit in return for a reduced price. Depending on which model you have, and what condition it is in, we are willing to take your unit in on trade towards the purchase of a brand spankin' new RECEPTOR 2, RECEPTOR 2 PRO or RECEPTOR 2 PRO MAX. Please contact the factory for more details, or send a message to email@example.com
