Source-Connect enables audio connections between digital audio systems anywhere in the world, allowing direct-to-the-timeline recording with real-time, broadcast-quality audio using only T1, Cable, or DSL internet connections.
Eliminating the need for expensive ISDN lines, hardware, subscription fees, or minute-by-minute line charges, Source-Connect allows your professional, home, or portable studio to affordably access any studio and any talent - anywhere in the world.
Now, instead of having to make sure ISDN lines are setup on both ends of the chain, both parties need only to have Source-Connect and you're ready to record. It's as simple as putting the plug-in on a track, routing that track to an audio input channel and hitting record.
Source-Connect interfaces with a server to provide added benefit services, such as a mobile Contacts list, IP resolution and security. Once you have established a connection with your remote user, the server is bypassed and all data is directly sent between the two plug-ins respectively, as in peer-to-peer applications.
Server benefits include
- Mobility: Your Contacts list follows your account. All you need to travel with is your iLok. With just a Username and password, Source-Connect provides server assisted connections for your mobile account - no matter where you are..
- Security: Your network details are buffered through our server. You decide what information you want to share.
- Ease of use: Your Contacts list makes it easy to see when your remote user is ready to connect with. All you need to do is select their username and request a session.
