ABOUT VSN

“Online Recording Services”


Virtual Studio Networks (VSN) recording studio online allows Palette Studio (MSP) to interact and work with artists and musicians anywhere in the world – with the ability to stream high fidelity stereo audio direct from our studio / Pro Tools rig to your computer in your own home/studio. No complicated set up on your behalf – you can listen with the sort of quality needed to make your mix & mastering real time tweaks. In addition, you can participate in live sessions in our studio utilizing very common programs like SKYPE, FACETIME, ooVoo, etc. Nothing like conducting a full blown session in the comfort of your own home!! And, think of the thousands of dollars you’ll save on travel expenses, hotels, lost work etc. AND… this recording online process can be done across the country or for that matter, across the globe with multiple users participating at the same. All you need on your end is a computer with iTunes or the latest version of Chrome, a reasonably stable internet connect (preferably hard wired) /access and a pair of headphones or speakers of your choice.

As of 10.2018: VSN also offers FASTER STREAMING CAPABILITIES! Immediate real time low latency stream capability as well as 2 way talkback for the clients, talent and Jeff Silverman, and all running within a simple Chrome browser on PC or MAC desktops and laptops! And there’s an app for Apple devices as well! 🙂

VSN can also reverse the set up so Jeff can run and record your performances into your Pro Tools DAW! Refer to Samples / Complex Set Ups.

We are continually working to improve this setup and are in the process of reviewing different options where VSN / Palette Studio can record you directly from your home/studio into ours.

Here’s a quick overview and some different options on what you’ll need to connect to VSN:

  • A Mac or PC laptop and / or desktop computer
  • iTunes or the latest Chrome Browser – This can be on either platform. PC or MAC
  • A good broadband connection
  • Any browser you prefer for screen sharing
  • A good set of headphones or speakers
  • Lastly, we can talk via the new Chrome two way talkback feature, on the phone or better yet…
  • We can Skype, ooVoo or Facetime so you can visually participate in your session with me and/or the musicians, in real time!

I will then email you one or two things to start:

  • A .m3u file that you will put on your desktop. When I start broadcasting your music / session on my end, all you will need to do is right click on that file and select open with iTunes. And… in a matter of seconds, we are connected!
  • If you prefer to try the brand new and even simpler Chrome faster stream and talk back feature, I’ll send you some very simple instructions on how to log in using either Mac or PC!

As another option… I can send you an invite to screen share so you can see my Pro Tool session on your computer. AND THAT’S IT! We are ready to start our session!
