Source Elements is now making available its revolutionary Source-Connect plug-in for the VST workstation environment. Previously only available for Pro Tools, Source-Connect VST offers the same high quality, low latency, real time audio connections to a wide range of audio workstations. Re-authored for the VST platform, Source-Connect VST has been tested on Steinberg Nuendo, Cubase, Ableton Live and Adobe Audition 2.0.
Source-Connect eliminates the need for expensive ISDN lines, hardware, subscription fees and minute-by-minute line charges, enabling affordable high-quality audio streaming between studios, voiceover talent, and musicians all over the world. Incorporating a high-quality, low-delay AAC codec, Source-Connect allows for communications at bit rates up to 192kbps stereo.
"For the cost of a single month's worth of ISDN fees, Source-Connect users can now collaborate with studios around the world, no matter what flavor of workstation they use." remarked Source Elements co-founder Robert Marshall. "This was clearly something we had to do; we were getting too many requests for a VST version. The Pro Tools community has excitedly embraced this new technology, and we needed to offer this option to users of VST workstations."
Source Elements has developed two types of streaming software and both are now available for VST and Pro Tools users; Source-Connect for 'workstation to workstation' collaboration, and Source-Live for workstation to QuickTime™. Source-Elements released Source-Live for VST in August of 2006. "Think of Source-Connect as what you use to build your project, and Source-Live for getting client approval, no matter where your client happens to be." explained co-founder John Binder. "Both have their place in professional workflow."
Source-Connect VST will be available for purchase October 9th from www.source-elements.com and is priced at $395. For a limited time, Source-Elements is offering a Source-Connect/Source-Live bundle for $595.
