Earlier this month, I did a thing.
After 15+ years, I disconnected my ISDN lines.
It’s the end of an era.
After posting a video of my home studio on the Book o’ Face a few weeks ago, someone noticed my Telos Zephyr XStream on a bookshelf in the video, and was surprised to learn that it wasn’t a just a bookend, but that my lines were actually still connected! I’ve left them because they’re cheap. But I got to thinking, why keep the expense if it’s not being used?
I checked with my agents and regular clients, and the consensus was… let it goooooo!
It was a weirdly a hard thing to do, letting go of those lines. Emotionally, I mean. When I first got the ISDN lines, I was just getting started in voiceover, and I was so proud! I was of the mentality, “Build it and they will come…” and that, they did. I was able to offer that extraordinary service to my clients, which only established talent could offer. I’ve had SourceConnect Standard for years now, and have been able to offer both, but, now, it seems that ISDN is obsolete.
But with life, comes change, and evolution. They’re gone. I just deleted the numbers from my web site. I will chat with you on SourceConnect Standard only now!!
