We are currently looking at what makes a good voiceover mic and Source-Connect Now is another great tool for voiceovers and podcast audio. Source Elements have announced that they have added a number of new features to Source-Connect Now.
- They have made a commitment that Source-Connect Now will remain FREE for 128kbps mono connections between two people. Click here for more details on pricing options.
- Source Elements have now added an auto-reconnect feature to make it safe for Radio and live broadcasts. Source-Connect Now is now designed to reconnect if the Internet drops momentarily or on a power outage.
- There is now the option to pan left and right, which improves its usefulness for recording podcasts, for example. If you sign in using the Stereo mode you can now set your pan to the left or right to separate voices.
- To improve connections Source Elements have added even more servers, to make it faster to find guests around the world and connect to them. Source Elements do ask that if you have any connection errors to let them know as they tell us that major changes are currently underway as they start to integrate services.
