Version 1.1 of Receptor contains numerous enhancements, fixes, and improvements. The most significant of these are discussed in this document.
Kompakt DFD state is now saved
In Receptor 1.0, Kompakt was unable to save its DFD state. This has been fixed in 1.1 -- any changes you make to Kompakt's DFD settings can now be saved. Note that DFD settings are saved within the Kompakt plugin and are thus global to all instances of Kompakt. DFD settings are not saved as part of a Receptor Multi patch.
Found and fixed rare noise problems
Under certain obscure conditions version 1.0 could emit unexpected noises. Version 1.1 has code built in to catch and eliminate these noises before they start.
Fixed rare crash when instantiating plugins via MIDI
Can now delete all files installed via Unsupported Plugins
In version 1.0, some unsupported plugins could install additional files with 'Read Only' privileges, which would prevent users from deleting them.As of version 1.1, it is now possible to delete all files installed via the Unsupported Plugins folder.
Appletalk can now be turned on from Receptor's front panel
In version 1.0, AppleTalk could not be turned on from the front panel. This is now fixed.
Multi and Single patches load up to four times faster
Depending on the state of your mixer and the nature of your multi or single patch, you will see up to 4x improvement in patch load times.
Dramatically faster startup times
Receptor 1.1 starts up markedly faster than version 1.0. It also restarts much faster. For example, triple-clicking the power button (which restarts the Receptor host application) with factory patch "<Demo Multis> / 001:Keys, gtr, vox" loaded yields the following difference:
-- Receptor version 1.0 = approximately 28 seconds to restart
-- Receptor version 1.1 = approximately 8 seconds to restart
New Receptor Remote application dramatically improves Receptor control using OSX.

EVE Sound Set Support
If you use Dash Signature's Eve plugin, you can now install your own sound sets and banks. Note that this fix requires you to download and install the EVE updater from Plugorama. Eve (and other updated plugins) are separate downloads and are not part of the Receptor 1.1 update package.
System Log now reports amount of RAM installed in Receptor
Receptor now reports how much RAM is installed. To find this information, mount Receptor's HD on your desktop (as described in your Receptor Manual), then open Receptor's Reports/System Log.txt file. Scan through that log (or use your computer's Find feature) for a log entry called "Installed RAM." That entry will report how much RAM is installed in Receptor. Note that the System Log contains a somewhat lengthy history of your Receptor. If you install new RAM into Receptor, you should search backward through the System Log, since the most recent startup information is displayed at the bottom of the log.
Select MULTI Banks without sending an MSB (CC00) message
It is now possible to select patches in MULTI banks without sending an MSB (CC00) Bank Select message. Simply send the desired LSB (CC32) Bank Select message followed by a program change and Receptor will load the corresponding Multi patch. When Receptor receives an LSB message without a corresponding MSB message, it now assumes that you want to select a patch from the Multi bank.

Support for Spectrasonics plugins using Receptor's "Unsupported" Plugins feature
Yes. We realize this is an oxymoron, but Muse Research has developed a new download that will allow you to install Spectrasonics Atmosphere, Trilogy, and Stylus Classic as unsupported plugins. Note that Muse Research does not distribute nor sell these plugins on Plugorama.com. Rather, this free download configures your Receptor to allow your previously purchased plugins to be authorized using Spectrasonics' own authorization methodology.
Please see Installing-Spectrasonics-Plugins.pdf for instructions on using the downloads.
