It is not really working in the Receptor.  Sorry, but the MUSE Receptor needs some upgrades.

Wow - dissappointed to hear this.    I hear Muse is planning an OS upgrade; do you expect this will help?

I am waiting to try that OS upgrade myself.  I like the Receptor itself, but as with everything, improvements and updates are a fact of life.

We'll see.......

If BFD2 doesn't run on a Receptor, what CAN you load it on to access it with a Zendrum? Does it have to be a computer? This would be somewhat limiting for live work.Thanks Michael

Actually I've been using a laptop live for about two years now without any issues. Care must be taken for sure but it will work.
Cheers,
Steve

I'll second the laptop.  I've been touring around for a while with a MacBook Pro loaded with BFD2 and a lot of other software.  No Problems so far! (As he knocks wood)  You just need to make sure it is up to the task.

I still use my Receptor, but it has been modified to Komplete5 (in addition to BFD1.5).  I am using that with my Mallet KAT for shows, while I handle the majority of the drums and extras through BFD2 in the Mac.

John, What interface do you use to get the sounds from the computer to your PA? I currently am looking for my solution and your input would be greatly appreciated Thumper

MIDI to USB is handled by a MOTU Fastlane.  I use a Metric Halo ULN 2 +DSP for the audio out.  In the last few months I have been traveling around doing clinics and I always get a different PA.  With the Metrich Halo's "Channel Stip" it is not a problem.  I use that as a final EQ and drive rack to tune the PA that I am working with.  That way my BFD2 setting never have to change.  It takes about 10 minutes to set up and tune a room.  It is not a cheep setup, buy I need to be able to work fast and get the best audio out of any sound system.  You'ld be surprised at some of the gear that I have needed to work with at clinics.

I would also recommend the MOTU and RME equipment.


Hope this helps,
John
