Enable console style talkback and listen-back without needing any external hardware. Newly designed for AAX 64-bit compatibility in Pro Tools 11. Now with Auto mode.
Allows for single key toggle and latch, and now featuring the new Auto mode that opens the talkback when the transport is stopped.
Compatible with external switches for wireless talkback control. More affordable and convenient than external hardware.
Talkback (Aux) goes on the Auxilary track that has your microphone input.
Talkback (Master) goes your Master fader.
To open and close Talkback you have options:
1. Click the Talkback button to toggle
2. Toggle using then slash key "\". Latch using Shift+\.
3. Enable Auto-Mode in the Options menu. Talkback will close when the transport is running and open when stopped.
When working with talent at your studio or remotely via Source-Connect (or any other method of connecting to another studio) whether it is across the hallway or across the world you probably want to listen to the connection over your speakers rather than over headphones. This means that your connected partners will hear themselves back in your microphone, making it difficult for them to speak.
If you are in your studio, you may have hardware at your disposal that provides talkback functionality: some analog mixers or control surfaces such as the D-Control come with built-in talkback functions. However if you are on the road or using a setup like Pro Tools Native, you may not have built-in talkback.
The Source-Talkback plug-ins solve this problem for you, more efficiently and more conveniently than spending more money on an additional hardware piece to lug around just for a single, simple feature.
For Pro Tools 10 and 11 only, Lion and up (OSX 10.7)
AAX plugin only (Native)
For Mavericks users, follow the instructions when you first use Source-Talkback to add Pro Tools as an allowed application in Accessibility Preferences.
