Introduction to Source-Connect 3.9 Pro
This article is part of the Source-Connect Pro and Pro X 3.9 User Guide
Source-Connect Pro 3.9 is a standalone application for Mac OSX 10.7 – 10.11 that supports high-quality recording and monitoring of audio signals over the internet and allows for input and output directly into your DAW of choice.
Source-Connect provides professional studio access to high quality, real-time audio streaming from within your editing environment, along with Remote Transport Sync (RTS), for remote synchronization of recording sessions. To reduce the channel bandwidth requirements while maintaining low delay and high quality communications, Source-Connect uses a state-of-the-art AAC codec developed by Fraunhofer IIS. Source-Connect Pro 3.9 no longer includes the Apt-X Extended algorithm from APT.
In addition to streaming and RTS capabilities, Source-Connect also provides Contacts management and Instant Messaging features. You can add or remove contacts and edit your personal settings and profile by logging in to your account on the Source-Connect website.
What's new in Source-Connect Pro 3.9?
Source-Connect Pro 3.9 supports “Source-Stream”, a method for bypassing firewall restrictions. This means you can travel and use Source-Connect almost anywhere you can get broadband internet (some firewall restrictions may still apply, contact our Support team for details).
Source-Connect Pro 3.9 is a fully standalone application and features Source-Connect Link, a set of AAX, Audio Units and VST plugins that directly send audio to many supported hosts.
Since version 3.7.0, Source-Connect Link supports 32-bit AAX sessions and 64-bit Audio Units.
Source-Connect Pro now also allows you to connect using your audio settings at the higher sample rates of 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz and 192 kHz. This functionality works with both Source-Link and built-in audio.
