Get started with ConnectionOpen on Mac

Thu, Jan 23, 2020



Following on from last week’s video, this week we show you that it’s just as easy to setup and get started with ConnectionOpen on a Mac.

 

In the video we set everything up, add a contact and make a connection with both audio and video 5,000 miles away. The audio is crystal clear and the latency super low - that’s what ConnectionOpen is all about.

 

Check out this week’s video and see for yourself. Don’t forget you get 3 free passes when you create your free ConnectionOpen account today.

 

Also remember that until the end of January, you can subscribe to any monthly plan using the code JAN2020 and get 50% off for 12 months - 14 days free trial, no minimum term, cancel anytime.

ConnectionOpen goes to Neverland

Tue, Nov 26, 2019


With sand still in our shoes, we’re excited to tell you about our recent adventure in Costa Rica; six days of music industry workshops at the fantastic Neverland Retreats event!

Led by co-founders Adam McInnis and Sam “Heights” Garay, it offers aspiring artists and producers the chance to get away from the daily grind and learn about the music business from people on the inside; a selection of award winning producers, songwriters, vocal coaches and other seasoned professionals who have worked with some of the biggest names in music. With a sell out attendance of up and coming artists and a plethora of music industry mentors in the same hotel, it was a real hotbed of talent, surrounded by the beautiful jungles of Nosara, Guancaste.


Idyllic as the scenery may sound, this was not just a holiday, we were keen to demonstrate (OK, show off!) what ConnectionOpen can do, and how it can be used to empower artists to work remotely, so we decided to really push it. We performed a live ConnectionOpen session from Costa Rica to Portugal - over 5,000 miles away! We’re pleased to report everything went smoothly and the response was really positive, attendees were especially impressed by the quality of the session, and how easy it was to set up.

If you like the sound of Neverland Retreats, we highly recommend them if you want the insider guide to making it in the music industry - maybe we’ll see you at the next one!

Remote audio recording with low latency and uncompressed audio

Wed, Sep 18, 2019


With a big year ahead, we’d just like to give everyone a quick reminder of what ConnectionOpen is all about.

What is ConnectionOpen?
ConnectionOpen is an application designed to transmit uncompressed audio over the internet with close to zero latency, for the purpose of remote collaboration and recording.

Key Features
- Quick to set up, easy to use
- Available as a standalone application and VST/AU/AAX plugins
- Simple, cost-effective pricing structure including day pass sharing

What makes ConnectionOpen so special/different?
The concept of using uncompressed audio with no perceivable latency is the core of ConnectionOpen - it’s a killer combination not available with other online communication tools. Users located miles apart can collaborate and record as if they were in the same studio.

How is that possible?! The magic behind ConnectionOpen is the innovative communication technology we designed, built and patented ourselves. With other online solutions there has always been a trade off between speed and quality, ConnectionOpen is designed to remove this compromise.

Who is ConnectionOpen for? Voice over artists - The ability to perform and work remotely offers VO artists greater flexibility; a win-win for both the artist and their client.

Musicians/producers - you don’t have to be in the same location to make a hit record anymore; collaborate anywhere over the internet with studio quality sound.

Podcasters - say goodbye to awkward, low quality Skype interviews plagued with lag issues, and start recording professional interviews with guests around the world.

Questions? Feedback to share? Need support? If you want to get in touch with us for any reason, the quickest way is via the website chat facility. Look out for the little green circle at the bottom right of the screen - give it a click or a tap to start a new chat. Sign up and start your 14 day free trial now
