Muse Releases Live Mode for VIP



New Feature Provides Instant Patch Changes + Mobile Device Control
San Jose, California. September 7, 2012—Muse Research and Development, Inc. makers
of the RECEPTOR VIP dedicated hardware virtual instrument and effects player, has
released their first software update for their VIP model: version 1.1. This new software
version introduces a remarkable new feature called "LIVE MODE" that pre-loads all
your presets into memory, letting you quickly move from sound to sound instantaneously
in a live performance situation. The LIVE MODE graphical user interface screen was
specifically developed for mobile devices with touch screens, such as IPads, Android
Tablets, and smart phones over a Wi-Fi connection to the RECEPTOR VIP. This

exciting new software release is available immediately to all registered users.

LIVE MODE lets you create and perform set lists with ease
The RECEPTOR VIP features SoundFinder™, a unique sound organizational tool that
uses "TAGs" to sort sounds into different categories. You can create TAGs for different

instruments, or use TAGs to organize your sounds by performance situation.

To create a TAG for LIVE MODE, you simply create a new TAG with a meaningful
name like "My Big Gig Set 1", "Friday Night Jam", or "9AM Worship Service". Once
you create the TAG, simply drag presets into the TAG in the order in which you intend to
perform them. Next, simply click on the name of the TAG and select LIVE MODE from

the TAG menu. Voila! The LIVE MODE window comes up and you're ready to go.

LIVE MODE features "NOTES" text field to eliminate performance guesswork
Do you ever find yourself freaking out at a gig because you forgot how a song starts? Or
what the first line you're supposed to sing? Or even what key the song is in? All that

worry is a thing of the past thanks to the "NOTES" feature in LIVE MODE.

Simply click on the italic "I" for any preset, and a large field opens up where you can
enter in any text message you want...from the tempo or key of the song, the first notes or
chords, even the lyrics. These NOTES are saved with each preset in LIVE mode, and
when that preset is called up, the notes are displayed. You can even scale the font to

make it readable without your glasses!

LIVE MODE screen designed for Control from Mobile Devices
RECEPTOR VIP is a rack-mount device that can be controlled from the new, easy-to-use
front panel. You can also connect a mouse, monitor, and keyboard to the back of the unit
and see its graphical user interface and control it like you would a computer. But the new
LIVE MODE was specifically designed so you can connect a Wi-Fi router to the
RECEPTOR VIP, and then simply download a free VNC application to your mobile

device, and remotely "log on" to the VIP and view the LIVE MODE screen.

This means you can use an iPad or Android Tablet and control all aspects of LIVE
MODE wirelessly from across the stage, or even from your front of house mixing
position! As an extra consideration, we've made the LIVE MODE preset increment /
decrement buttons extra large so they can even be controlled using a Wi-Fi enabled smart


"We're very pleased to introduce this ground-breaking feature in our RECEPTOR VIP.
The LIVE MODE feature not only further differentiates the RECEPTOR VIP from a
computer, but it does so in a manner that radically improves the experience of performing
or rehearsing using virtual instruments" comments Muse Research VP of Marketing
Bryan Lanser.
