Source-Elements has released Source-Connect Version 2.2 in conjunction with an end-of-year sales promotion.
With the latest update, Source-Connect has added RTS (Remote Transport Sync) for remote synchronization of recording sessions over the Internet. This upgrade is available to current Source-Connect users at no cost. New users can take advantage of this limited time offer by visiting www.source-elements.com.
RTS brings integrated transport locking to Pro Tools, allowing full use of bandwidth for the audio signal.
Source-Connect enables high quality, low latency, real time audio connections between Pro Tools systems anywhere in the world, using only T1, Cable, or DSL Internet connections.
Incorporating a low delay AAC codec, Source-Connect allows for communications at bitrates up to 160kbps mono, 320kbs stereo. The new RTS feature allows the mix engineer to not only remote control another Pro Tools session, but hear the other session in sync with his own system. No additional synchronizers are required. Even though SMPTE timecode is not needed to synchronize with RTS, users will still have the option to send timecode along with the stereo or mono audio stream.
Source-Connect Version 2.2 is available for download from www.source-elements.com and is a free upgrade from version 2.1. During the 2005 end-of-year sales promotion customers can save $400 off the retail price of $1495.
