Remote Studio Connections for Voiceover Sessions
I have a variety of studio connections to make a live studio session possible. In addition, you may have a studio connection that I can connect to.
If you’ve never worked with talent remotely before, you mind find this blog post helpful.
REMOTE LIVE CONNECTIONS AT STUDIO QUALITY
All of these options are live studio quality connections. These allow you to direct and record a live session as you would if I were in-person in your studio.
I have a Cleanfeed account, so can connect to any studio with a compatible browser in their studio. Most commonly, Google Chrome or Chromium – but others work too.
Source Connect Standard
An industry standard, (particularly in the US) for secure audio connection between studios.
If this is your preferred system, we can connect.
If you have a SessionLinkPRO subscription, then you can invite me to a live session using your account.
Source Connect Now
I have a Source Connect Now account, so (like Cleanfeed) can connect to any studio with a compatible browser.
ISDN / ipDTL
I have a lapsed subscription with ipDTL – mostly because use of ISDN has diminished.
However, this still leaves me with an account that can access to a “Day-Pass” for specific projects or renewal where required.
ISDN needs to be an incoming call, and the numbers are generated dynamically, just before the start of the sesssion.
REMOTE LIVE CONNECTIONS ALLOWING DIRECTION
All of these options allow listening in and direction of the session. The difference is you receive the recording afterwards and don’t need to be studio based in order to direct. You can do it from a phone or laptop.
I have a Skype account linked to my studio. This allows you to listen in and direct a session. Studio quality audio is recorded at my end and sent to you after the session.
This uses my Skype-In numbers. I have a UK and a US (New York) number, which you can call on your phone, to direct a live session as per the Skype option. Audio sent immediately afterwards.
I have a Google account, but have yet to use Google Hangouts for a live session. I believe it works in the same way as Skype – and I’m happy to be a guinea pig.
