Unsupported Plug-ins [top]

Although we certainly can't individually test every freeware and commercial plug-in for complete compatibility with Receptor, our experience thus far has been that most freeware works with Receptor automatically, as long as the developer of the freeware plug-in has strictly followed the Windows VST 2.0 plug-in specification. Plus, many commercial plug-ins work with Receptor automatically if they use simple (i.e. serial number) or no copy protection. Having said that, there will inevitably be some Windows VST 2.0 plug-ins that may not be fully functional for whatever reason, and Muse Research makes no claims or warranties regarding compatibility, or functionality.
