Streamsoft Bows Artist Connection for Artist Approval
Company announces the debut of their Artist Connection Service (SaaS) for production teams, artists and their audiences
By: Streamsoft Inc.
Artist Connection is a bespoke "cloud" service, providing both white label and personalized gateways for artists and studios to share and comment on their work. Artist Connection can be accessed on mobile platforms via an app for iOS and Android, while Sonic Studio's Amarra Luxe provides cross–platform desktop entrée. The service supports all common audio formats and sample rates; Sony 360 Reality Audio (mobile only), PCM, FLAC, MP4, binaural and most data–compressed formats. With its ability to share media, Artist Connection is a modern framework for content creators to reach out and connect directly with their audiences, allowing artists to easily promote and monetize their work.
Artist Connection streamlines the approval process to just a few simple steps that dramatically shortens the time between recording and release. Artist Connection securely streams content with complete tracking of all steps. This allows studios to know when the content they send is auditioned and, with instant message feedback, minimizes the time required for the approval process. A distinct advantage of Artist Connection is its integrated support for immersive audio as well as channel–based formats, when used with Sony 360 Reality Audio. With the increasing use of immersive audio, being able to listen and approve content is a unique and powerful feature designed for the most demanding production schedules. Upcoming video support will provide a comprehensive platform for stereo, channel-based and immersive media delivery and approval.
One engineer who has extensive live and "surround sound" experience, having most recently worked with Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz and Foo Fighters, is Jon Altschiller at Chiller Sound. Altschiller has been searching for an approval workflow that functions seamlessly and reliably. "Artist Connection has been the missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting approval for our 360 Reality Audio mixes. It's intuitive and convenient, allowing artists and management to QC any mixes remotely and on their own schedule."
Sonic Studio LLC, based in Marin County, will serve as the exclusive reseller for Artist Connection. The service is available starting October 28, with a free 30 day trial for content creators via the Sonic Studio Pro website <http://www.artistconnection.net/&
