Ben Patrick Johnson – professional voiceover record remotely from anywhere
October 14, 2021

We are using Source-Connect as our main connection for multiple daily sessions from my mountain home in Idyllwild, CA – where there is NO ISDN SERVICE AVAILABLE – as well as on-the-fly from a Starbuck’s, hotel rooms, even from the car..

“The first big leap out of the studio for most voice-over actors happened when ISDN technology allowed us to transmit our sessions from city to city, studio to studio, or across town from our own home studios to the post-production houses and network facilities in Hollywood. But ISDN required a lot of set-up, planning, and works best from one established, fixed location to another.

That’s not how life works these days. We need and want to be more mobile. Enter Source-Connect. An extremely simple kit. A laptop, microphone and connector box let professional voiceover work from anyplace on earth that has a internet connection. Now that many of us can tether connections from our smartphones, the possibilities are limited only by the cellular footprint.

This has been proven a revelation to me. Brady Walter and FROMHOME got me set up rapidly and at minimal expense. The people at Source-Connect have been helpful at answering any questions that have arisen. Since spring 2012, we are using Source-Connect as our main connection for multiple daily sessions from my mountain home in Idyllwild, CA – where there is NO ISDN SERVICE AVAILABLE – as well as on-the-fly from a Starbuck’s, hotel rooms, even from the car. The features and connection options of the Pro version of Source Connect are particularly helpful when dealing with varying cellular reception and conditions.”

“Source-Connect is proving to be an invaluable mobility solution for me. Source Connect is poised to become the default for how pro audio moves in the 21st century – for the VO business and for the entertainment industry as a whole.”
