Chicago - June 2007:

Source Elements releases Source-Talkback, an RTAS plug-in for Pro Tools designed to enable talkback functionality without requiring external hardware. Source-Talkback allows for an engineer to talk to talent either over Source-Connecttm and/or in a local recording space while not getting feedback through the monitoring speakers. Source-Talkback offers full functionality including talkback, listenback, selectable dimming, toggling, latching and is also compatible with any remote connection method, for example ISDN, regardless of where you get your signal from.

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. Without Talkback when listening over speakers your connected partners will hear themselves back in your control room 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 smaller setup like Pro Tools LE or M-Powered, you may not have built-in talkback. The Source-Talkback plug-ins solves 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.

Robert Marshall, co-founder of Source Elements, says that 'Source-Talkback is a simple but very useful addition to the DAW work flow. After working with DAWs for years it has been more than obvious that a studio communications solution was needed. So we introduced Source-Talkback. I believe users will not remember how they worked without it and though it may possibly be taken for granted we are happy to provide a tool that smoothes the creative process so our users can get more work done by eliminating some of the limitations of their systems.'.

Source-Talkback is available for purchase and as a full-featured 15-day demo from https://www.source-elements.com/Talkback. Source-Talkback is priced at $95. Source Elements was founded by John Binder and Robert Marshall, two audio engineers who develop alternative solutions to the problematic complexities of everyday post-production.
