Source-Elements LLC released a new plug-in called Source-Live, which allows users to stream the output of their Pro Tools mix to multiple listeners simultaneously. Pro Tools users simply e-mail listeners a Live-link and the listeners, using common media player software such as QuickTime, immediately connect to the stream in real time from anywhere in the world.
Using the most current AAC/MP4 algorithms, Source-Live provides listeners with true 24-bit audio quality. Real-time “listener management” and password protection within the plug-in allows users to control who’s listening in on the session. Source-Live’s Live-to-File feature helps easily generate MP4 files and podcasting. In addition to session monitoring, Source-Live can also be used to stream live events to a streaming server for Internet radio capabilities.
Source-Live is compatible with Pro Tools Version 7 (Mac and Windows), and is now available for $395. Go to www.source-live.com for additional pricing and product details. For more new product announcements, visit mixonline.com/products/new/.
