Can I connect VoiceQ via MIDI or AVID Satellite to Pro Tools on Windows?
You may run VoiceQ on a mac and connect it to Pro tools on windows but it will require a hardware MIDI connection or third party application to run successfully. We do not recommend it, but it is possible to use it in this configuration.
For AVID Satellite you can connect to Pro Tools on Windows 10 or above.
Can I open “VoiceQ Project 3.0” format with older series and versions of VoiceQ?
No, VoiceQ 6.1.0 will be the first version ever to export in the “VoiceQ Project 3.0” format. Users wishing to open projects created in “VoiceQ Project 3.0” format will need to upgrade to version 6.1+. Users can choose which format to save in if they wish to send the project to a user on an older version. If you are having loading issues from external drives or cloud drives we recommend using the new “VoiceQ Project 3.0“ file format over the legacy “VoiceQ Project 2.0” file format.

KIWA Digital Ltd. is Blue Shield approved. As per MPAA and TPN guideline policies, the use of VoiceQ applications do not breach TPN assessment.

How does VoiceQ integrate with ProTools for recording?
To connect VoiceQ, you have two options: you can either connect it via Avid Satellite or MIDI using the in-built IAC, or you can share the connection over a network to another device. For detailed instructions on setting up your studio, please visit the 'Setting up your studio' page.
I receive a MIDI error in VoiceQ upon playback. How do I fix this?
This can be caused by two variables:
1. Check MIDI beat clock is set to the correct port in ProTools. The Beat Clock controls Playback and often is the cause of this issue. Navigate to 'Setup>MIDI>MIDI Beat Clock...'
2. In the Transport window or Synchronisation options via the transport, you need to select 'GEN MTC'. Once activated both PT and VQ will be in Sync.
What are the benefits of using VoiceQ with AVID Protools vs using AVID Protools on its own?
When using VoiceQ with Protools, you can enjoy several benefits compared to using Protools on its own:
i. Interoperability with OOONA: VoiceQ allows seamless import and export of files between the two applications, facilitating easy sharing. This is especially useful for script updates and post-recording edits.
ii. Pre-recording script features: VoiceQ offers comprehensive reporting capabilities, including line counts and character word/letter counts. These built-in features benefit the casting of voice actors and provide project oversight.
iii. Filtered character lines during recording: VoiceQ enables you to filter the lines specific to each character, providing a defined list for voice-over (VO) recording. Both the audio engineer and director in a studio setup have full visibility of the script. This allows for easy export of the as-recorded script post-recording.
iv. Script display options for actors: Actors can view the script on screen using various methods such as Rythmoband, plain text, subtitles with the classic 3-beep method, or a combination of modern and traditional approaches.
v. As-Recorded script integration: VoiceQ allows you to incorporate all updates from the studio recording into one project file, resulting in an as-recorded script. This feature is particularly useful for post-production subtitling.
vi. Audio Description capabilities: With VoiceQ's As-Recorded script, you can easily perform Audio Description, with in-out points visually displayed on the timeline for users' convenience.
By utilizing VoiceQ alongside Protools, these benefits enhance the overall workflow, efficiency, and accuracy of the recording process.
