Receptor: a unique, portable, and powerful solution for using plug-ins live.
Virtual instrument and effects plug-in technology has replaced dedicated hardware synths, samplers, sound modules, and effects processors in studios around the world. This has in turn created a dilemma: what do you do when you want to perform live, or if you want to take advantage of plug-in technology but don’t want to have to learn a complex computer host program to do so? Receptor is the answer.

Receptor is a 2-rackspace, dedicated music instrument and effects processing device based on Linux and is purpose-built to run plug-ins in the popular VST format. After receiving accolades from the press and being adopted by major touring acts around the world, Receptor has established itself as a venerable live performance instrument, excelling in empowering live musicians. Recent upgrade’s in Receptor’s host software now allows Receptor to integrate tightly with a computer system, making it as valuable in the studio as it is in on the road.
