Hi All,

When source connect isn't an option, what are your methods to connect via skype (just audio) to communicate between 2 studios?

Thanks

I go +4 bus > reamp box > interface (Apogee One, in my case) > laptop. To hear the client, I go interface headphone out (Apogee's only analog out) > console line in.

In rooms without a console, I use Source Nexus Pro and route everything internally in the computer.

Pro Tools comm send ----> Source Nexus A--->Skype

Skype ---> Source Nexus B ---> Pro Tools return channel

When I have a console (not a control surface) in the room I go in and out of that console through a second, dedicated audio interface. I just use a cheap Tascam something or other. Works great.

Nexus is great.
I did an ADR session the other day connecting to a studio in UK via Source Connect, and patched in a voice coach via Skype. A breeze with Nexus, would've been a nightmare to setup otherwise.

Here for the gear
You could also connect the optical I/O on your Mac to the optical enclosure on your HDio interface. You just have to make sure to create a new aggregate device in Audio Midi setup in order clock your Mac's optical output to Protools.

Cheers!
