Third Model fits between RECEPTOR VIP and QU4TTRO

Anaheim, California. Jan 24, 2013— Muse Research and Development, Inc. makers of the RECEPTOR VIP dedicated hardware-based plug-in player, are debuting the RECEPTOR TRIO at the 2013 Winter NAMM show. The new RECEPTOR TRIO features a new quad-core processing engine, a 1TB hard drive, 8GB of RAM, and comes bundled with a PreSonus 1818 audio interface for up to 18 inputs and outputs. The new TRIO model features a new and improved 64-bit operating system with Intellibridge™ technology that lets you run 32-bit and 64-bit plug-ins simultaneously as well as expanding the capabilities of Muse Research's exclusive LIVE MODE, the ground-breaking live performance technology that first appeared in their VIP model. RECEPTOR TRIO is expected to ship first quarter with a list price of $2999.

TRIO: Third RECEPTOR model slots in-between VIP and QU4TTRO

The RECEPTOR TRIO incorporates a slightly less powerful quad-core processor, a 1TB drive, and 8GB of RAM to allow it to fit nicely between the affordable RECEPTOR VIP and the top-of-the-line RECEPTOR QU4TTRO. The result is a system with impressive capabilities at an affordable price. Like the QU4TTRO, the RECEPTOR TRIO features TetraCore™ technology to balance the load between the four cores to get maximum performance from even processor-hungry virtual instruments and effects. Also like the QU4TTRO, the TRIO supports multiple channels of inputs and outputs thanks to the bundled external audio interface, letting you use it as a multi-effects processor and multi-channel sampler / synth / sound module all at the same time. The new RECEPTOR TRIO is ideal for a touring or performing musician who requires more power than the VIP, but doesn't need the extra performance offered by the top-of-the-line QU4TTRO model.

64-bit OS supports more RAM for unbeatable performance live and in the studio

Complimenting the TetraCore processing engine is the new 64-bit OS that supports both 64-bit and 32-bit virtual instruments and effects. Support for 64-bit plug-ins means that you can make use of all 8GBs of the on-board memory, and with 32- and 64-bit plug-in bridging, you can run both formats of plug-ins simultaneously. Even more impressive is the exclusive LIVE MODE feature that will pre-load the sounds and effects you need at a gig, and access them instantly using the new LIVE MODE performance screen, which can be controlled from a tablet or smart phone device over Wi-Fi.

PreSonus 1818 Interface included, offering massive I/O channel count

The RECEPTOR TRIO is the ideal touring rig where you need to send multiple channels to the sound reinforcement system, either as balanced analog or ADAT optical digital signals. The pristine audio outputs in the PreSonus 1818 gives you super-low latency performance and let you process incoming signals (like your other keyboards) as well as providing individual outputs for all your virtual instruments. The combination of the RECEPTOR TRIO and the 1818 interface lets you handle any performance situation with ease, including mixing and processing guitars, vocals, and other instruments, and setting up a complete mix on stage for your entire band.

The massive power inside the RECEPTOR TRIO also makes it ideal for running large numbers of virtual instruments simultaneously, and then sending the individual outputs to a DAW or mixer for use in the studio, providing you with a stable, high-performance environment in which to run your plug-ins without bogging down your DAW.

Come see the new RECEPTOR TRIO in the Muse Research booth 6825 at the Winter NAMM show. While you're there, check out the complete line of RECEPTORs, with models to fit all budgets and applications.
