Voice-over automation and batch recording for Mac OS X 16/02/07
Audiofile Engineering has introduced voXover, a new voice-over automation tool and batch recorder for Mac OS X. Designed in Cocoa from the ground up, voXover is custom-tailored for multimedia professionals working in the OS X environment, taking advantage of CoreAudio, Quartz and other advanced features.
Audiofile Engineering tell us that voXover is a truly unique and modern voice-over automation utility and batch-recorder for multimedia projects that require large numbers of individual audio files to be recorded where a typical multi-track recorder is not feasible. Examples range from video game development and broadcast work to speaking dictionary and telephone voice-response production.
Audiofile's Matthew Foust told us, "voXover is an indispensable tool for multimedia developers who need to record large amounts of dialog efficiently and without error. And now with our crossgrade offer, voXover represents a quantum leap for users of VoicePro X who previously had no upgrade path."
voXover allows you to write or import a written script and rapidly automate the recording of that script. The script can be displayed on voXover's teleprompter to the voice talent via your wired or wireless network. Sessions can range from completely automated to completely free-form. Takes are automatically created, named, and annotated as configured in the script. Takes may also be filtered, sorted, organized, rearranged, renamed, and exported at any time during the session.
