I'm seriously looking into purchasing Muse Research's Receptor. I've been "researching" the Receptor and found out that it now has a beta version of Uniwire. This seems to promise to make the Receptor a bit more "fused" with my main computer. Even without Uniwire, Receptor seems to be a good product. It's also an expensive product. For nearly the same amount of money, I can purchase a new computer and network it to my main one. But the Receptor seems to be more portable (and durable) which interests me for live gigs (which I really don't do much. . . . . . . . . but it's always cool to have the such tools available if/when the need presents itself).
I visited the museresearch.com web site and noted that there's a cross-grade for GPO. I didn't see JABB listed, unfortunately.
First off. . . anyone using the Receptor? If so, how are you liking it?? Secondly, any plans to have a JABB cross-grade available for the Receptor if none exists (which seems to be the case)??
I'm working on a composition, at present, using two full instances of JABB, one full instance of GPO and one using the Halion 2. This makes for a total of 36 tracks! This is not bad, I'm happy to say!! But my computer does spit and sputter a bit during one point of the piece when a lot of the instruments from all three VST plug-ins are being "played". (Of course if I "freeze" the instruments, the spit and sputtering goes away. But I'm not finished sequencing the project, so it a bit too early to freeze the tracks.) I'm thinking that if I had the Receptor, I can free up at least 16 tracks on the main computer by allowing the Receptor to "share the burden".
I noticed that there is a cross-grade for Kontakt 2. This could be a reasonable work-a-round if there is not cross-grade for JABB at this time. But if there IS a cross-grade for JABB, that would be great!!
