I’m kind of feeling overwhelmed overwhelmed by my AT&T ISDN situation, and the story of David and Goliath keeps coming to mind.
I’d like to thank my friend, Dave Courvoisier for his recent blog post about the issues many are facing when it comes to ISDN, and in particular the AT&T ISDN delivery of same in most cases. Read The Slow Death of ISDN.
And I have been busy. Admittedly, a bit too busy working in and on my voiceover business in order to pay for my ISDN to sniff out many alternatives yet to produce results, but I have gotten as far as my pursuit list:
iPad ISDN alternatives???
The one concern about Luci live is I don’t believe my iPad has the power to drive nor connect to my Neumann U87ai microphone. So far as I know, the iPad can accept a usb microphone with the camera kit interface plug. And usb mics don’t render the same quality.
ISDN Bridging Service Partners– Tel. 847 859-9519 I selected this one as it’s closest geographically. For ISDN bridging to Source connect .
Software Alternative to ISDN
I just did a line test over the internet using Source-Connect with a studio in Germany and it sounded as good as ISDN! I’m feeling hopeful that static IP could come into its own soon and replace ISDN. AT&T would certainly LOVE for this to happen, sooner than later.
ISDN Studio Rental Option
And if ISDN must be the only alternative for my session, I’ve located a studio about 20 minutes away which I’m hoping will give me a favorable rate to rent/hire out their ISDN studio on occasion. I’m figuring all the studios throughout the Midwest Region have all felt the enormous rate increase from AT&T on ISDN. Perhaps they’ll welcome anyone who’d help to offset the expense.
OK. Enough ranting. Back to work.
