— With Web Transmitter, LISTENTO subscribers can now share lossless audio in real time directly from a web browser with anyone around the world. —
London, UK – Audiomovers has introduced Web Transmitter, the latest extension to the renowned Audiomovers LISTENTO software suite, which allows users to stream, listen to and record high-resolution multichannel audio remotely and in real time. Web Transmitter is a simplified, web-based version of the LISTENTO app, which launches straight from a browser – ideal for songwriters working on new songs, record label A&R staff and managers looking to share unreleased tracks, beatmakers sharing ideas with collaborators, or mix and mastering engineers who need client feedback and educators conducting classes remotely.
With Web Transmitter, LISTENTO subscribers can share lossless audio in real time directly from a web browser with anyone around the world. Web Transmitter can deliver stereo or mono uncompressed, lossless audio at resolutions up to 96 kHz, 32-bit PCM, with additional support for high quality, reduced data rate streaming audio at 128-256 kbps with the OPUS codec or 96-320kbps AAC. Any audio input or outputs on a computer, such as built-in microphones or USB audio interfaces, can be routed to feed audio to Web Transmitter, or the user can drag and drop – and loop – any audio file supported by the Chrome or Firefox web browsers (i.e. mp3, WAV, FLAC, ogg, CAF, mp4, ADTS and WebM) for instant playback with no need for access to a DAW. Routing from a DAW or routing multiple audio sources at once is possible using Audiomovers’ audio patchbay software for Mac, OMNIBUS. Streaming latency can be adjusted from 0.1 to 1 second in 0.1 second steps to prevent dropouts.
With Web Transmitter, users can invite collaborators directly from the Transmitter without the need to copy and paste the sharing link – collaborators can be emailed directly from Web Transmitter. Anyone with the link can listen in natively via a web browser, from the LISTENTO Receiver DAW plugin, or from Audiomovers LISTENTO Player mobile apps for iOS and Android, without need to pay or login. Session and content security is enhanced by the ability to generate random session URLs and password protect a session.
“Web Transmitter adds capabilities that existing web audio sharing methodologies lack,” says Igor Maxymenko, Audiomovers Cofounder and Head of Audio Products. “Its ability to stream lossless audio that is stable and with minimal latency is unique and unmatched. As an integral part of the LISTENTO software suite, Web Transmitter opens up the industry-standard, best-in-class online collaboration capabilities of LISTENTO to a new audience beyond audio engineers or others using DAWs to work on audio.” Unlike less capable options, Web Transmitter is not limited to the Chrome browser but also works in Firefox on desktop with full functionality. Web Transmitter is directly launchable from Chrome and Firefox at transmitter.audiomovers.com.
A subscription to LISTENTO is required to use Web Transmitter to share audio. All LISTENTO subscribers also have access to the ability to share up to 16 channels of multichannel audio in real time at data rates up to 32-bit/96 kHz PCM. LISTENTO also supports the real time streaming of immersive audio, up to 7.1.4 and offers user-defined latency as low as 0.1s. The LISTENTO suite of products, downloadable from Audiomovers.com, includes a set of DAW plugins (VST, VST3, AAX, AU), a desktop application for Mac or PC, a phone/tablet app (purely for receiving audio) for Android and iOS, and now Web Transmitter for browsers. Free trials are available.
LISTENTO is priced at $12.99 per month or $99.99 per year on the Basic Tier, or $24.99 per month or $199.99 per year for the Pro Tier. The Pro Tier adds additional features like MIDI Streaming, custom branding and the ability to transmit to 150 listeners/devices simultaneously.
A video tour of Web Transmitter is available on the Audiomovers YouTube channel and on the Web Transmitter page of Audiomovers.com.
