REMEMBER HOW TO SHARE?
Scheduled to launch next month, www.digitalmusician.net is a host site for musicians to team up for music projects or transfer ideas to one another using the company's VST 2 plug-in (Mac/PC). Users can configure a partner list, whereby if a “partner”is online, that partner will appear in the DML's GUI and be invited for an online session. The site uses patent-pending technology to allow sample-accurate recordings of audio or MIDI data in sync with playback via the Internet. DML sends time-stamped audio and MIDI from one sequencer to another using TCP/IP. Bit rates of up to 256k/bit can be selected. For CD-quality recordings, a DSL upstream of 384k/bit or higher is necessary. Multiple audio streams are mixed down to a single stereo stream prior to transmission. Subscription fees start at $15.90 for a one-month standard account to $290 for a one-year studio account with seven sub-accounts.
