Voice-over tool released
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. VoXover is a modern voice-over automation utility and batch-recorder for multimedia projects that requires the recording of large numbers of individual audio files where a typical multi-track recorder is not feasible. VoXover allows users to write or import a written script and rapidly automate the recording of that script. The script is displayable on voXover's teleprompter to the voice talent via a wired or wireless network, and sessions can range from completely automated to completely free-form. Takes are automatically created, named, and annotated as configured in the script. Users can also filter, sort, organize, rearrange, rename, and export takes at any time during the session. VoXover 1.0.1 is priced at $375, with crossgrades to voXover available for $325. VoXover requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
