World famous sound and super great playing feel

We harness all this computing power with highly tweaked audio I/O drivers to avoid the annoying latency that plagues most systems. And speaking of audio – RECEPTOR 2+ CLASSIC employs the same legendary audio I/O design of the original RECEPTOR, with 24-bit codecs, balanced line level inputs and outputs on 1/4" TRS connectors, super-clean front-panel instrument input, ADAT optical 8-channel digital output, and support for up to 96kHz sample rates.

RECEPTOR’s Unique Software Platform

Optimized hardware is only the beginning, since RECEPTOR 2+ CLASSIC lets you exploit all the power and speed the hardware has to offer thanks to Muse Research’s proprietary host environment, available only on RECEPTOR.

The Muse host software has been custom designed and highly-optimized for the task of running virtual instruments and effects. The simple mixer-like interface enhances your workflow, letting you select presets without having to open a plug-in interface, and letting you control all aspects of a plug-in as well as the mixer itself using MIDI. The powerful MIDI filter lets you quickly create splits and layers, as well as re-channelizing and re-pitching your sounds instantly. All of this results in more time spent making music, and less time with your creativity on hold waiting for your gear to get out of the way.

Great Audio is Muse’s Top Priority

The Muse host software is built on top of Linux, the “industrial strength” operating system that consumes as little as 5% of the available RAM compared with as much as 40% with other computer operating systems. Furthermore, Muse prioritizes audio tasks over less-important tasks such as graphical redraws, which means that the operations that matter when making music receive higher priority than all others, unlike a computer that typically emphasizes graphics performance over all else. Finally, Muse host software has been made more efficient by eliminating all the extraneous functions that bloat and drain the performance of a computer system – there are no printer drivers, email programs, automatic updates or other programs to sap the CPU’s power and interrupt you from what matters: making music.

Not only powerful, but also versatile and efficient

RECEPTOR 2+ CLASSIC is a poster child for versatility, working as a keyboard synth, sampler, or sound module, serving as the world’s most amazing guitar processor, or an absolutely stunning drum module. Attach a mic preamp and you have an astounding vocal processor, or simply connect the line inputs to your rig for the most impressive effects processing you’ve ever used.

And that’s only the start of RECEPTOR 2+ CLASSIC’s versatility, as you can control it entirely from the dedicated hardware front panel controls and the cool, blue LCD, or you can attach a monitor, mouse, and keyboard to the back panel to view our mixer-like software interface in action. Of course, you can also edit your virtual instruments and effects using their GUIs. And finally, RECEPTOR 2+ CLASSIC will connect to your computer (laptop or desktop, PC or Mac) using a single Ethernet cable, letting you view RECEPTOR 2+ CLASSIC’s interface over your ethernet network!
