Wheatstone Releases New Version of VoxPro Recorder/Editor

Smarter hotkeys, customizable shortcuts and more overall features builds on the Wheatstone VoxPro reputation as the universal standard for live radio recording, editing and airing call-ins and interviews.

Wheatstone announced a new software release for its VoxPro recorder/editor, the digital audio editing system used in broadcast studios and newsrooms worldwide for live recording and editing of call-ins, interviews and spots.

The new VoxPro version 7.1, to be shown at IBC, features smarter hotkeys, customizable shortcuts and improved file naming and importing functions. VoxPro is designed specifically for broadcast applications and includes advanced features such as Auto-Import, Auto-Record, EZ-Export, Automatic Gain Control, networked file access and customizable folders.

VoxPro is known for its VoiceSlip feature that automatically handles host/caller talk-over, as well as its GapBuster feature that can automatically remove silence from interviews and phone calls in seconds, rather than the minutes it would take to do manually. Also unique to VoxPro is its controller with scrub wheel designed for realtime recording, editing and playback on the air, the control keys of which are mapped to specific functions in the software for exceptionally fast recording and editing without requiring a mouse.

This new version builds on VoxPro's reputation as the universal standard for live radio recording and editing in on-air control rooms and newsrooms worldwide. It offers smarter hotkeys, which can now loop and pause sound effects, spots, music beds and interview quips.

Users can now assign a variety of functions, effects and their own FX Macros to the five hotkeys on the control panel. Users can optionally elect to display any bank of shortcuts permanently, making these functions accessible at all times with a simple press of the corresponding hot key.
