I am new to the forum here. My day job is sales guy for Muse Research.
Well then, Ted: Welcome aboard. I probably can't grab the video. Stuck to dialup and all. Sorry: that would've been great.
Call me old-fashioned, but I like my video playback at greater than 1 FPS.
Hey, I heavily researched the Receptor when it first came out. The price? Well, I waited for that to drop, and it has. A little. The new O/S enhancements looked promising. Admittedly, I haven't revisited the issues in a while, so these comments may be old news. But I originally was put off by the fact that I could find no information about Receptor-ized versions of my licensed plugins, or the associated "crossgrade" costs. I had no concrete assurance that my current stuff would work in an affordable manner.
Also, there *were* a ton of VSTi's included, but I saw a lot of freeware. Now I realize that *officially* there's no support for "un-Receptorized" plugins, and that's quite understandable. I also know that puts a lot of people off, because they think, "I'd buy this for live use, but I really want it to load this-or-that." Hey, I know you probably can't give specifics, but how about a ballpark percentage? In your experience, does a given well-written plugin have more than a fighting chance of success in Receptor? And, since we're talking live use, reliability & stability also factors into that question.
I know that I can get the party line by revisiting the website, and I'm not lazy, but I like to collect personal input from real users. If you can expand on any of that here, that'd be great. If you can't, I'd be interested to hear about *anything* that you've found to be valuable in handling Receptor.
Or, consider it like this: You've got at least one
new customer that's teetering on the brink. Won't take much. Convince me.
I mean, besides
that it's lower in cost than a neKo. Hmm ... can I upgrade the hardware myself? [BSEE and then some. I've been around the block quite a few times. Just as some background.]
