With the recent news of Source Connect Now offering connections at 320kbps, ipDTL has increased their connection rate to 320kbps also. Below is an email sent out today to users of the service, with some nice additions including free accounts for everyone.
ipDTL IS NOW FREE FOR ALL
We’ve lifted the restriction on free accounts so that now anybody can sign up immediately for a basic pair of logins. Free logins only work across optimum network conditions, only connect to each other and are restricted to 40kbit/s.
INCREASED BITRATES FOR HQ AUDIO USERS
HQ Audio users can now connect at up to 320kbit/s in stereo. We’ve also added video support on beta with free trials available for existing users and hugely discounted rates for new users.
No recording software? No problem. Just click the record button in the new ‘Mixer’ tab where you can also mix a secondary input device or an audio file from your computer. Check your output using the added PFL feature.
PUSH TO TALK
Don’t have a talkback key in your studio? No problem. Just activate the mute feature and then use the ‘CTRL’ key on your computer’s keyboard to talk to the other user.
TEXT CHAT & SCRIPT SHARING
You can now send messages as text to other users and share your script during a session by simply copying and pasting it into the ‘script’ tab. Each user can edit the script collaboratively as you go along.
ADDED SECURITY ON LINK+
Now there’s no chance of another user guessing your Link+ address and joining your account uninvited. Our new Link+ addresses end in a combination of letters and numbers that even the greatest code-breakers can’t decipher. Find your new address under the ‘Link’ tab and start using it now so you’re ready for the changeover.
