Source Elements has announced a major new release of Source-Connect (Standard and Pro) for Windows, bringing the power and stability of their Standalone software to the Microsoft Windows operating system. Besides adding greater stability, this new version of Source-Connect 3.7 offers all the power of the current version of Source-Connect for Mac to audio professionals using Windows. Source-Connect 3.7 runs as a Standalone application, no longer needing complicated DAW setups, while still allowing users to work directly in their DAW of choice and take advantage of the full feature-set of Source-Connect.
As a Standalone with AAX, RTAS and VST "Source-Connect Link" plug-in (plus Audio Units for Mac OS X), users get the full feature set available to Source-Connect and their DAW by using the optional plug-in. With Source-Connect Link, users get the stability and flexibility of a standalone package with the ability to easily and fully integrate as a plug-in if required. This allows Source-Connect to be integrated into almost any setup as a standalone, integrated via analog or digital cables or as a VST, RTAS or AAX plug-in. This release of Source-Connect Pro 3.7 finally brings the full features of Pro to all DAWs so all users can enjoy features such as high-quality AAC bitrates and Advanced Remote Transport Sync.
Designed for Windows XP through to Windows 8, users will notice the new interface is easier to use but still familiar: Contacts, messaging, settings and more are available with just a click using a tab layout. Making the setup easy is a custom Audio Driver unique to the windows version of Source-Connect 3.7 that works with any ASIO or non-ASIO device connected to a user's computer.
Source-Connect 3.7 arrives with built-in support for Pro Tools 10, with Pro Tool 11 support pending. This new version of Source-Connect Pro finally brings compatibility with DAWs that exclusively run VST plug-ins, including Nuendo, Cubase, Fairlight, Pyramix, and many others.
In early fall, Source Elements also anticipates the release of their Surround offering for OS X: "Source-Connect Pro Surround" - the first software IP codec to provide high-quality audio connections for monitoring and recording in surround with picture/timeline lock. Interested early-users are encouraged to contact Source Elements.
Source-Connect 3.7 is available for immediate purchase and as a full-featured 15-day demo from www.source-elements.com/source-connect. Source-Connect is priced at $650 for Standard and $1495 for Pro, with upgrades available for existing licenses.
