VoxPro6

VoxPro digital audio editing system is the de facto standard for live radio recording, editing and airing of clips in control and newsrooms worldwide. With it, clips can be recorded, edited and aired in moments.

For the user, VoxPro6 offers advanced features including Auto-Import, Auto-Record, EZ-Export, Automatic Gain Control, networked file access, customizable folders, and our trademark VoiceSlip effect for handling host/caller talk-over.

For the engineering staff or system administrator, VoxPro5 makes networking a snap; its flexibility and versatility allow it to be used in any physical or network configuration. User accounts are managed by means of simple ASCII text files, and user audio files are maintained in a standard Windows format.

Fast, reliable, and easy-to-learn, it consists of VoxPro software and a USB hardware control panel. Administrative functions allow management of disk space. An unlimited number of users create password protected folders for their own work. Unlimited undo and redo, remote start, and one-button insert record are just a few of VoxPro’s more used features. 10 Gig of hard drive storage holds about fifteen hours of stereo files.

Using intuitive icons and transport keys, the control panel allows users to speedily record and edit audio. VoxPro digitally records and edits voice, sound effects, and music clips on two tracks. All popular file formats, including MP3, MP2, WAV, AIFF and WMA files can be imported and exported individually or in groups. With a third party codec, you can also use M4A (iTunes format).

Among the VoxPro6 upgrades is a feature that enables talent to simultaneously record audio while editing or playing back other audio. Also new: a Gap-Buster function to automatically remove silence from interviews and phone calls, support for Hotkey and Marker labels in any of the world’s languages, color-coded Markers, and a detachable Hotkey panel. There’s also an option to hide the Editor and File List to reduce on-screen clutter, and greater integration with Wheatstone’s WheatNet-IP audio network, including control for routing, salvos and playback tallies with end warning flash. 

“We’ve combined all the intuitive capability that VoxPro is known for with several new features, then we Wheaty-ized it to turn it into an even more powerful tool in the broadcast studio,” says Rick Bidlack, lead engineer for VoxPro. 

And no, you aren't imagining it. The VoxPro 6 Controller is now re-styled with a smooth black finish to match the black finish of other Wheatstone control surfaces and rack products.

VoxPro is a broadcast-specific digital recorder/editor. Its controller interface and software applications are designed to record, edit and play back clips in real time on-the-air. VoxPro is a staple in many studios to record and edit call-ins, interviews, ad hoc comments and spots.

  • Markers - Place markers while recording or playing back by pressing the ‘M’ key on your computer keyboard. Write a note for the marker. All markers with notes are listed in a dropdown window. Double clicking a marker note title takes you to that mark in the recording. Right clicking a title allows you to edit the note, playback from that marker or go to the marker. Great for interviews, baseball or football games. Anything that will require documentation of “points of interest” in the file.
  • Auto-Network Forget about dealing with IP addresses and computer IDs. VoxPro workstations connected to your station's LAN automatically detect each other and stay connected, allowing users to access their password protected accounts from any VoxPro workstation.
  • Zoom -  Zoom in VP5 includes a sub-menu with four Zoom levels, x1, x4, x10 and max.  Press the Q key on your computer keyboard or the zoom key on the optional VoxPro control panel and the wave form window view zooms in 100 times for very precise editing. You can even playback files in the zoom position as the zoom effect stays on until the Q or zoom key is pressed again.
  • Auto-Import VoxPro users can choose any folder anywhere on the station's LAN and have VoxPro check that folder every 30 seconds for any incoming media files. If a file is detected it automatically gets "sucked-up" and into the users current folder.
  • EZ-Export - If you find yourself continually exporting to one particular folder either on your VoxPro computer anywhere on the station's LAN, you can set up VoxPro to always export only to that folder with the EZ-Export right click command when a file title is highlighted. In VP5 the individual user sets up this feature and it includes any MultiTrack mix created.
  • Standard WAV format files VoxPro uses the industry standard RIFF WAV file format for universal compatibility.
