Source Connect Now
This amazing web application is our go-to remote connection software for audio. All you need is a Chrome browser and a mic/headset or headphones. The sound quality is almost as good as Source Connect Pro and doesn’t require a plugin or any installation at the client end. It’s utterly brilliant.
If you’re like a demo of Source Connect Now shoot us an email. We’d love to hear from you.
Like Source Connect Now these applications all run via Google’s Chrome browser and use the Opus codec. This means they’re very simple to set up and are generally pretty reliable. They sound significantly better than Skype or a phone patch. For monitoring or approval purposes they’re all excellent.
For mission critical jobs we’d always suggest getting hold of the source audio after the session as the quality of these apps isn’t in the same league as ISDN or Source Connect Pro.
Skype is ubiquitous. It’s free and offers basic collaboration functionality. It’s a bit rough around the edges and sounds a little weak, but it’s better than a phone patch. It allows for group meetings which, if your team are in different locations, can be rather handy. FaceTime and Google Hangouts are much the same.
No fees, no setup and no complications.
If you don’t have an internet connection this is the simplest way to connect to us remotely. Our rather clever ISDN codecs let you dial into them from a mobile or landline. It’s great for podcast or interview guests who might be on location.
Or as a last resort, you can simply dial into the studio where we’ll have a speakerphone setup. You can talk to us and the artist or just listen in. Dead easy.
If you’ve got any questions about these apps or any other ways to connect with contributors just call or email us.
