      It houses samples to allow for playback without having to cart a computer around.

        Umm.. yes please I'll take one!! Shame they didn't go for firewire instead of USB for the external storage devices, but still- I like!! Anyone got a price on this badboy yet?

            Yep, it is another Receptor. Support for an external drive is great! I hope healthy competition will improve both products.

                    It's $599 at Zzounds, a lot less than a Receptor.

                      Not Bad.

                        Notice they are not available till October. I am also curious how their V-Rack stacks up against the Receptor. Those two units are very similar.

                          So if I get it right: I can upload VSTs to it and play them without a pc.
                          How about licensing, copy protection/rights?
                          Most VSTs I installed wanted to call home for registration, created ridiculously long codes out of combinations based on the used hardware, the date, my shoe size and all sorts which I had to enter or copy and past into other forms to get more codes to enter to get them to work.
                          How does it work with devices like this?
                          What about installing one software on more then one machine (as in computer and this or similar things)?

                            I've been toying with the idea of getting a Muse Receptor, this is half the price. It would be nice to see this running Superior. Looks compact. Thanks for turning me on to it!

                              Copy protection is always an issue.

                              Since I have a Muse Receptor I can tell you how they do it.

                              Some VSTs you can just copy the DLLs. Those are easy.
                              The Receptor comes with an iLock dongle for those VSTs that support that.
                              And Muse works with companies like Native Instruments to create "Receptorized" installers. As long as you have your original serial numbers, you can install the products.

                              V Machine might have come up with a better solution, but I will assume they have to do something similar.
