VoiceQ 3.0 from KIWA is an advanced ADR and dubbing cueing software designed for engineers, voice talents, translators or script writers who are involved in replacing original dialogue with same-language or other-language dialogue, in films, TV programs, games, and more. Packed with innovative features, this accurate and flexible system aims at streamlining the creative process from start to finish, enhancing performance levels, and reducing recording times.

VoiceQ 3.0 operates by scrolling the script across the screen, superimposed over the video, while the voice-over artist reads the words when they hit the target line. This provides actors and technicians with a frame-accurate cue for every word and every line, ensuring that the performer is always in sync with the lip movements of the actor on screen.

The software comes with AutoSync Assistant, a built-in script processor that uses speech region detection to minimize the time it takes for users to import text along the VoiceQ timeline. Other features include real-time, on-the-fly script editing, simple drag & drop of text from almost any source, multi-language capability (right-to-left and left-to-right languages), as well as ADR cue sheets, scheduling reports, scripts, and customized report builders.

VoiceQ 3.0 supports a wide array of MIDI devices, jog wheels, and video capture cards. It fully integrates with Pro Tools and Logic Pro X, and can output video through Blackmagic hardware.

Note: iLok 2.0/3.0 key is required for activation.
