Arrow ADR Software?

Hello there,
would love to have an advice on affordable ADR software to work with Cubase.
Thanx in advance!

w00t didn't know that Nuendo have ADR possibilities, Thanx for the hint.
Is anyone actually used it? Is it good enough?

I use it very often to do ADR in France for major US movies and TV shows. A real time saver, and very efficient. If you are going to do a lot of ADR, then I would seriously consider it.

Version 6, I believe. Fantastic function. I only do a few ADR sessions a year so I can't comment on the professional ADR mixer's workflow but I've always really appreciated the functionality of it.

I have actually been enjoying using premiere pro/audition combo for a film almost all shot mos. Even I find the recording sessions fairly fun directly using premiere, I just have a SD mixpre-d hooked directly to a Mac using a usb cable, and do direct recording into the timeline. Complex lip sync can be done in audition. I then go to protools after I have the dialog edited and aligned. It is also rather simple and easy to do, and having it go directly into the editing time line I find avoids a lot of moving files around and metadata confusion. Anyway I kind of hated doing adr, especially since I don't specialize in it and didn't have a full Adr setup, now it's enjoyable at least for certain genres.

Just seeing this, sorry for the late reply:

I use Nuendo everyday for either re-recording or ADR. The ADR taker system is absolutely amazing and super efficient. Its stable, and has great features like text screen overlay so your talent can watch the screen instead of staring at their script.

Ask your post house to supply you with a marker file [often a midi file]. You can simply import it in your marker track, add the dialogue into the cue from the script, and away you go. The bars and wipes are super intuitive and make signaling the start of the loop very easy. You can add additional bars to help with pacing during long monologues.

There is an auto value generator based on the track name, take number, cue or marker number. It helps save time later when you are trying to deliver later and match up the takes to the cue sheets.

Good luck,
jeremiah

I haven't used this, but it seems worth checking out. I believe it works with Cubase.

I strongly advise you to upgrade to Nuendo, especially since Steiny finally has an offer in place for it.
I started out doing Audio Post with Cubase, then got Nuendo which made a hell of a lot of things much easier.

You like Cubase? You'll love Nuendo.

And the ADR Taker is, as many have posted already, a superb tool.

I just made the crossgrade from Cubase to Nuendo. I do a lot of ADR (in PTHD/Ultimate..., doing a session with Warner Bros. later today actually). Man, if you find the time, I (and I assume many others) would love to see the ADR Taker being used in a real world scenario.

Coming from PT, it seems super clunky, but maybe I'm missing something. The most basic question I have has to deal with the 'ADR Switchboard' where it appears that you're either sending signals 'somewhere' or not at all....., so then how do you 'ride' signals when needed? Say the actor wants to hear production sound, but only for the first couple lines? And some times they want to hear production for the whole line, others not at all. Would you have to keep opening up the 'ADR Switchboard' for every line when a change in the routing is needed?

FWIW, I made the switch mainly for game audio work. LOVING Nuendo for that. But for general audio post, I'm having a hard time with it, and would just love to get a better grasp on it's strengths.

No, you won't need to open your switch board often. I have not opened my switchboard since the inital first or second configuration.

I will try to get a screenshot for you, but in short:
Load your switch board the way you want it. Leave two tracks - guide and music/efx - on the console, route them to the headphones [cue 1-4] the way you want them to go out, keep them post fader. Rider the fader during the take at will. Treat the guide and music/efx the same for any other track you want present in the cue system - ISDN, Source Connect, Phone Patch, Skype, etc..

Maybe I can even send you my generic session template. I am on a two screen NUAGE system, so it may look a little odd, but you could reformat it at will.

Cheers,
jeremiah

That would be awesome!!! Thanks so much for chiming in. Screenshots, a template... anything to help dig in a little more. Especially coming from someone that's been using Nuendo for post for a while.

It would be so great to see more Nuendo tips/tricks posted here or anywhere really. There's not much out there relatively speaking vs PT or other DAW's.

I would recommend asking on Steinberg's forum in the Nuendo 8 section. There are definitely a few guys there that do a lot of ADR especially for foreign dubbing, and I'm sure they have workflows to share with you.

There isn't a tremendous amount of activity, but if you ask I'm sure people will chime in with more answers.
