Thanks for the great news, I’m more than happy to be a winner! I just got a trial subscription of Source Connect in December because I want to widen my portfolio because I found out that remote recordings are more and more common so I’m really glad to receive the prize so that I can go on without further ado and start recording all over the world. Thanks again and let me say that I really appreciate your great work.

What Is Source-Connect?
Source Elements’ Source-Connect is the industry standard for remote recording, be it ADR or vocal overdubs. It can even be used for remote mix review.
What Are Source-VC And Source-Talkback?
These are very much as their names suggest. Source-VC is a 7.1 volume controller plug-in, which gives you non-destructive 7.1.2 control over your monitoring - a feature that Pro Tools still lacks. It has remote control via an iOS device, and integrates perfectly with Source-Talkback, which is a related plug-in, allowing you proper Talkback control, again remote controllable on iOS and MIDI commands.
What Is Source-Zip?
Until now, you couldn't just zip audio files using the zip software that is built into your computer, because audio files contain complex data that does not respond to standard 'zip' compression.
If you compress WAV or AIFF audio files using other compression software you'll lose all meta-data that is required by your audio program to quickly re-open sessions and start working. Source-Zip allows you to easily take all of your audio files in your session folder, zip them into a much smaller size using either the latest in MP4 compression technology or Apple's Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC), and then easily unzip them without requiring Source-Zip on the other computer by way of Source-Unzip, a self-extracting file.
Source-Zip allows you to compress your audio session and all its accompanying files for quick and easy transfer over the internet. Source-Zip creates a self-extracting file that you can email or ftp to someone quickly, and once unzipped it recreates your session files exactly as they were - including audio meta-data that applications like Pro Tools need to recognize the files, and any other files that were zipped along with your audio.
