When you’re the person recording an actor perform ADR (post sync dialogue), having dedicated buttons to perform repetitive tasks can be the difference between capturing that magic performance, and losing it by making the actor wait while you get everything set up for the next take. For studios using EdiPrompt, we now have a way of mapping physical buttons to application functions that is easy to set up and elegant to use.

With the release of EdiPrompt v3, support has been added for the Elgato Stream Deck. Together, we have created a free plugin, available on the Stream Deck store, that contains pre-defined actions to control all commonly used ADR record functions.

Stream Deck device

Once the plugin is installed in the Stream Deck app, simply drag-and-drop the actions required from the action list into each cell. No further configuration is required.

The actions allow you to navigate the EdiPrompt Cue List, trigger a locate, rename and locate or bypass the selected cue, as well as trigger the EdiPrompt Hot Keys and Pro Tools transport commands to preview, record and stop/play.

The other major updates in EdiPrompt v3 is a new preferences tab that allows you to select which audio output the Cue Beeps and Take Speech is sent to. EdiPrompt can now import the ADR cue data from Netflix TTAL files, plus it has been updated for macOS Ventura, and also natively supports Apple Silicon macs.
