Source-Connect 3.7 for Mac OS X

Source Elements has launched their new line up of Source-Connect Pro and Standard for Mac OS X with version 3.7. The new 3.7 Standalone version provides full support for Pro Tools 10 with AAX and 32-bit processing via Source-Link technology, along with 64-bit Audio Units and updated support for RTAS and VST. Higher sample-rates up to 96khz now allow everyone to work directly from their DAW.

“Moving away from being just plug-in based has given us huge flexibility. In just a few short years we’ve gone from being Pro Tools only, to supporting every DAW you could want to use.”, said co-founder Robert Marshall. “It’s an exciting time for us, that we can once again focus on features and usability instead of just supporting DAW and OS changes and incompatibilities. We’re equipping every audio studio, musician and voice talent with the best possible tools to work remotely.”

Source-Connect 3.7 integrates support for 32 and 64-bit processing of Auto-Restore and Auto-Replace. Source Elements’ Auto-Restore and Replace technology is a critical feature when you are recording remotely and fast delivery is crucial: any time you go outside of your immediate hardware setup, you’re risking losing data – whether from corrupted file transfers, ISDN failures or real-time internet connection drop-outs. With Auto-Restore you are guaranteed to get every take the first time while it automatically identifies dropped packets, recalls them from the remote system and restores them into the recorded audio without ever leaving the timeline: quickly and automatically. Going one step further in meeting the demand for perfect sound recordings, Source-Connect’s Auto-Replace feature calls for the remotely recorded, uncompressed audio and then locally replaces the AAC derived file with its full resolution PCM counterpart; not just on the hard drive but also within the timeline including every edit. No longer does the recording engineer have to deal with FTP downloads or have to re-edit the uncompressed file into an already edited timeline.

Source-Connect Pro and Standard 3.7 is available for download now for Mac OS X, with updated Windows support anticipated in September. See the Source Elements website for a full-featured 15-day trial. Source-Connect requires an iLok for trials and full versions. Upgrades and cross-grades available.
