I just installed SourceConnect for a client two days ago using their new VST version. We had an issue with getting it to come up in Nuendo
so I called Source Elements and a very nice woman with an english accent answered the phone. Her name was Rebecca and I come to find out that she is actually the programmer/designer of Source Connect.
She's extremely nice but rather useless because (and these are her words) "she doesn't know how to use the plug-in except in PT, she just programmed the thing".
I was like, um, what? Basically she knew absolutely nothing about Nuendo's routing scheme nor how to make the thing work, but after about an hour or so I figured it out and then proceeded to explain it to her (she still didn't get it even though I went through things step by step - and btw, their tutorial guide for VST and their demo session are worthless).
So, anyone wishing to try it out in Nuendo/Cubase here's how you do it:
1. Create 2 mono tracks
2. Put the Source-Connect plug-in on the first mono track, login
3. Put the Source-Receive plug-in on one of your input channels (where it would normally be a microphone coming in) - do not enable thru
4. Record/Listen enable the 2nd mono track and set the input of that track to input channel you put Source-Receive on
5. Choose a contact, enable a session with them using the Source-Connect plug-in (located on the 1st mono channel) and you are up and running
The technology is great. There is about 200ms of delay when Nuendo
was set to 64 samples on the buffer (24/44.1 session). It works well and is very easy to understand once you get passed the initial hurdles. It's just a bit uncomfortable to me that the programmer of the software has no idea how to use her own stuff, especially at this price point.
Also, for those of you who will become owners and users of Source Connect, there is apparently a company called EDNet who will play middleman between customers who are ISDN only and you (running Source Connect). I don't know what they charge but basically they setup the ISDN session with your client and then Source Connect that session to you. Could be a good option until everyone ditches ISDN.
(p.s. I have no affiliation, nor am I a dealer with either company - I did all of this at a client's site the other day)
Hope that helps a bit!
