Last week we were presented with a new way of doing digital patch work with other studios. Instead of using our traditional ISDN lines and a typical codec (Telos or APT), we’re testing a product called Source Connect, a Pro Tools plug-in which can accomplish the same thing as ISDN but uses our internet connection instead. We’ve been pretty impressed with what we have seen in our 15-day demo version, but of course it is only useful if other studios have it as well. We’ve put out the feelers over the past few days by calling and e-mailing other studios around the country to see if this idea is catching on. John Lukas, who has already run tests with a few studios, will be setting up test patches with Bell Sound, Atlantis Group, 48 Windows and Evolution Audio by the end of the week. We’ve got the demo for another 10 days, so if you would like to try it out, give us a call and we can set something up. We think it’s definitely worth checking out.
Part of what we’ll do is post some of the audio here as we have it. And, we’ll share your feedback (anonymously if you’d like) on the Feedback page of our blog.
