MFR# R2

Product Description

The Muse Research Receptor 2 is a high-performance, super-stable dedicated hardware plug-in player that runs hundreds of virtual instruments and effects with the convenience and portability of dedicated hardware. The Receptor 2 joins the Receptor 2 PRO and the Receptor 2 PRO MAX to complete the series of products.

The Muse Receptor 2 uses a dual-core AMD processor and a 320GB SATA 2 hard drive and provides significantly more performance than the previous generation. Additionally, the new Receptor 2 has a sleek, new look with a deep blue front panel, LCD, and blue power LED. The dual-core AMD processor and high speed DDR-2 RAM of this new second generation of Receptor provide performance that is similar to the previous generation's top-of-the line, but Receptor 2 costs significantly less.

Includes Plugsound Box Collection for free!!
The unit also includes $700 worth of sounds in the form of the Univers Sons Plugsound BOX pre-installed and ready to use, you'll find that Receptor 2 lets you start making music instantly with minimal hassle and maximum results.

Versatile and Affordable
Keyboardists and guitarists will love how Receptor 2 makes their plug-ins perform and feel like real instruments, by running them with super-low latency and massive polyphony. The Receptor 2's new hardware and software has been designed for optimized performance of your favorite virtual instruments and effects, and combines this performance with a number of unique features that make Receptor the ultimate musical instrument.

Advanced features such as Z-Load, Snapshots, our Unified Preset Access feature, and the powerful MIDI filter make this the ideal tool for creating, manipulating and performing with your virtual instruments and effects. Keyboardists will love the whopping 320GB drive for storing all their sample libraries, and guitarists will love the optimized OS for loading up tons of instantly accessible tones and playing with low latency. And all will love the exceptional audio quality of Receptor, making it the choice of touring and studio professionals the world over.

"Totally" Portable and "Komplete"
Many of the world's biggest bands and most famous artists use Receptor to run their synths, samplers, and effects both in the studio and on the road. That's because Receptor packs massive amounts of power into a 2-rack space box that weighs only 18 pounds. The Receptor 2 delivers even more power than the original meaning you can have optimal performance for your virtual instruments and effects without breaking the bank.

If you crave more sounds, you can configure your Receptor 2 with either the IK Multimedia Total Workstation Bundle or the Native Instruments Komplete 6 bundle pre-installed and authorized, significantly expanding the range of sounds at your disposal, all while saving you a bundle of time and money! Clearly Receptor 2 brings an entirely new dimension of how much music creative power you can cram into a compact and portable package.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
