Sorry to disappoint you but I'm fairly certain Mobius will not run
on a Receptor. Mobius was originally designed as a standalone
application and as such it is not a "pure" VST plugin. In particular
it does not use VSTGUI, a popular cross-platform user interface toolkit
that a lot of plugins use. Some of the synchronization features also
require that it make direct contact with Windows MIDI devices which is
not allowed in portable VSTs.
Unless they've done a spectacular job on their Windows emulator
(Receptor internally runs Linux) I doubt it will work. If you
get any diagnostic messages with details about what Receptor didn't
like I'd like to see them.
