Our story: Be apart. Create together.
Today is an inspired beginning for remote collaboration. A juncture where the time we share together is just as important as what we create together.
World-shifting audio and video projects don’t have to stop just because everyone isn’t in the same room. Yes, there are unique challenges to bridging space and time zones. And in addition to our day jobs, we’re teaching and taking music lessons; composing arrangements online; and engineering sound for games, or recording our next podcast. But you’ve got access to affordable, secure technology to enable that remote experience, because it’s our passion.
Source Elements delivers high-quality, innovative solutions through our platform components. We stay with you to see your masterpiece through, with constant communication and 24/7 support.
Whether you need to compose, live-stream, and record an orchestra performance around the world, or sync a commercial spot with video across the city, Source Elements is the way to lock in sound quality and synchronicity.
Unlike other solutions that are highly complex and force a fragmented approach to collaboration, Source Elements is easy to learn. Easy to use. And hard to resist once you hear your highest-caliber audio creations.
Get ready to get confident, relaxed, and expansive in your technical artistry. All from being connected by a platform so impressive it even heals itself when packets drop or wireless networks lag. Our tools give you the confidence to keep working.
With Source Elements, now is your time.
Our history: We are technology. We are community
Since 2005, Source Elements helps connect creative people around the world to collaborate in real-time on the production, approval, and delivery of professional quality media for the media industry.
Source Elements is the makers of Source-Connect: the industry standard in the film and television industry for remote recording, review & approval. We make what seems impossible, possible, by introducing real-time workflows to multimedia productions through a suite of software applications that enables broadcast quality production in a collaborative online environment.
While the quality, convenience, and reliability of our premier products along with our reputation for high-touch customer service and support are what have established us until now, we work hard to continue the revolution. Recently, we released Source-Live Pro Low Latency, a web-based professional-quality production environment that is poised to change how professional media is made online, and a major release of our famed Source-Nexus plugin is now available for Windows. We’re excited to have you on board.
Rebekah Wilson, Co-Founder & CEO
Rebekah Wilson is a composer and musician, in addition to being the Co-Founder and technical director who, with visionary Co-Founder Robert Marshall, created the entire suite of Source Elements software.
As a self-taught computer programmer living in New Zealand in the 90s, Rebekah began connecting with a network of her peers in the electronic music industry online, traveling the world and performing as an electronic musician at events including Transmediale (Germany), Ars Electronica (Austria), Sonar (Spain) and City of Women (Slovenia).
After serving as the Artistic co-director of STEIM from 2001-2003, where she learned live electronic performance and developed a passion for real-time music performance software, Rebekah landed in Chicago where she met Source Elements Co-Founders Robert Marshall and John Binder. They created Source-Connect initially as an in-house project at post-production house Cutters in Chicago.
Rebekah and Robert have continued to work together over the past fifteen years to build Source Elements into a global company and a connected network of thousands of media professionals who rely on their software to complete their projects.
In 2018, Rebekah completed her Masters in the topic of Networked Music Performance, merging two passions: 21st century composition for ensembles and network music technology.
Rebekah currently resides somewhere in Western Europe and while looks forward to traveling the globe again soon, she hopes to be part of the future where increasingly sophisticated internet and music technologies emerge, bringing a world made recently more distant from each other, closer together with music and rich audio and video applications.
