We have released our second paid plugin, and this one is for audio post production. To cue actors for voice recording and ADR, recordists traditionally use 3 beeps, then the actor speaks on the imaginary fourth beep. However, it is becoming more common now to use visual cues (‘wipes’ or ‘streamers’) on the screen, and the actors speaks when the two lines touch. Viper is a simple plugin that generates these wipes, triggered by a midi note.
If you are still using beeps to cue performers and you run your video on a second or third monitor (rather than a dedicated video device for your DAW), give Viper a try. Actors are getting used to having second or third cues to keep them in time during a long sentence with pauses, and it doesn’t have to be too expensive to make it easier and more comfortable for them.
If you are about to make an upgrade from an old Mavericks machine deep in the Foley cave that runs unsupported wipe software and you need something Catalina- or Big Sur-compatible, give Viper a try. Automatable choices of colors can make it easier for you to cue the Foley artist to the footstep or the cut.
If you are building a new studio and you are overwhelmed by the cost of hardware and software licenses, give Viper a try. It doesn’t have to cost hundreds of dollars to generate an onscreen wipe.
Viper sits in your template, ready to record when you are. Select and save your settings, automate your preferences and preview your wipe all from within your DAW.
