Steinberg launches VST Connect Pro – Remote multitrack recording

Steinberg VST Connect Pro

Steinberg has announced the release of VST Connect Pro, a fully featured remote recording solution for remote multitrack recording of audio and MIDI in premium sound quality.

“With VST Connect Pro, we’re convinced to be revolutionizing the way producers and musicians work together. In fact, the technology behind VST Connect delivers completely new approaches to producing music, triggering and recording instruments remotely, and cooperating with musicians and clients at a distance,” remarked Frank Simmerlein, marketing director at Steinberg.

VST Connect Pro offers encrypted transfer of real-time recordings through the internet and local area networks. While delivering immediate stereo recordings, up to 16 audio tracks are recorded in the background in uncompressed, high resolution.

Compatible with Cubase 7, VST Connect Pro establishes a peer-to-peer connection with the free client-side application, VST Connect Performer. During remote recording sessions, users of both software applications can adjust the cue mix and talkback levels, as well as communicate via video link.

With the release of VST Connect Pro, Steinberg also introduces Studio Pass, the free iOS app for VST Connect that lets users dial into the recording session with an iPhone or iPad.

VST Connect Pro features

  • Collaborate with other musicians and producers around the world.
  • Peer-to-peer solution with sample accurate sync.
  • MIDI support for sending and receiving MIDI data to your recording counterpart.

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Prince – world exclusive interview: Peter Willis goes inside the star’s secret world

I’m sure you’ve read about this already since it’s all over the place but if not, check this:

"You must come and listen to the album," he says. "I hope you like it. It's great that it will be free to readers of your newspaper. I really believe in finding new ways to distribute my music."

He explains that he decided the album will be released in CD format only in the Mirror. There'll be no downloads anywhere in the world because of his ongoing battles against internet abuses.

Unlike most other rock stars, he has banned YouTube and iTunes from using any of his music and has even closed down his own official website.

Prince @ iTunes
Prince will not sell his new album on the internet, because… uh.. it’s completely over

He says: "The internet's completely over. I don't see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won't pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can't get it.

"The internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good.

"They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you."

It seems Prince is either very clever or not quite with it…

# Free Sample Shootout #3: Acoustic, Electric And Toy Pianos

The bedroom producers blog is back with another great round-up, this time it's all about pianos:

I have to admit I wasn’t always a huge fan of acoustic pianos. Even though my family used to own a piano when I was a kid, I almost never played it, rocking my broken 3-string guitar instead. Quite frankly, I simply found the piano to be a very boring instrument.

Now, was I abducted by the aliens, or did something heavy fall on my head, I don’t remember, all I know is that something really weird must have happened because I love the sound of piano now. The problem is, though, that I don’t own my old piano anymore, and I can only dream about having an electric one like a Wurli or Rhodes. But with all the kind people sharing the samples of their instruments online for free, can we still consider not owning an instrument to be a problem?

PULSE SEQUENCER

# animal-style.com PULSE SEQUENCER

Joey Mariano writes:

This a CV sequencer i built (with an arduino microcontroller). It Sequences the pulse width of my guitar through the Control Voltage input jack on the Pulsemonger pedal.

I got the idea from tracking (composing) in famitracker, LSDJ and Goattracker. When you compose for the NES or the Gameboy, there are tons of effects you can choose from to make square waves more complex and interesting sounding – i always wanted to apply those effects to my guitar. So, once i saw that the Pulsemonger guitar pedal had a CV input for the pulsewidth i had to buy it. Sequencing the pulsewidth is one of the fundamental sounds of chiptune music – the ability to recreate this sound through my guitar was way too exciting.

# elektro-07 v.1 – the elektrocardio midi controller

Rucyl Mills writes:

I built the elektro-07 so I could control the sonic and visual parameters of my live performances without having to look deep into the eye of my laptop, hunched over in computer music stance. I'm still learning how to play it.. Software wise, it runs a maxMSP/Jitter patch smoothly, connected to my laptop by a long usb cable. Major thanks to Luke DuBois. Originally it was named the Chakakhantroller after Chaka Khan… but you wouldn't believe how many people don't get the reference.. so I changed it to Elektro-07 after my newly launched label, Elektrocardio. Next version will be wireless, and yes… it's made of black leather and snakeskin.
