Remote Working

Voice Actor and Engineer using VoiceQ Cloud, VoiceQ Pro, and SourceConnect


Connecting Remotely

Engineer connects to Remote Desktop either via direct control over the Actors PC and/or connect to a session via SourceConnect and ReWire.

Users can use VoiceQ as per normal via the video system. We recommend using lower resolution on mac in the office to alleviate delays in connection to the external users.

Audio can be passed through the Recording Mac in the studio for talkback for both Engineer and Actor. Passthrough can also be sent to the external user using hardware as well.

External user needs to remote into a session via Zoom or a reliable service TeamViewer - Director can connect to a computer dedicated to VoiceQ and the remote desktop software only.

Steps for external:

  • VoiceQ Cloud may also be used to edit text on the studio mac using sync as text changes may be hard due to lag.

Voice Actor, Engineer and Director using VoiceQ Cloud, VoiceQ Pro and Audiomovers


Connecting Remotely The Actor, the Director and the Sound Engineer need the same configuration

  • 1 laptop and a second screen or 1 tower and 2 screens.
  • Teamviewer (free account) and Zoom ($14,99/Month).
  • Audiomovers (Pro Tools plug-in for the actor’s computer, the actor’s needs to create an account on their web page: $ 9,99/Month can be rented daily
  • On the actor’s computer
25mb/s internet speed recommended The actors will run Pro Tools and VoiceQ on the same computer through a local MIDI Connection. Screen Sharing:
  • In the Mac preference system: Display / Arrangement / Deselect mirror display.
Zoom and Teamviewer:
  • The actor’s computer is the host on Zoom and TeamViewer. Both are simultaneously activated.
Now the actor’s computer can:
  • Put VoiceQ on his desktop and share it with Zoom. (The Rythmoband is running more fluently with Zoom).
  • Put Pro Tools on the second screen and share it with TeamViewer with the engineer.
On the Sound Engineer’s computer: The Sound Engineer connects his computer to the actor’s computer with Zoom and TeamViewer. Same screen set up.
  • In Pro Tools: The Sound Engineer will activate the Audiomovers plug-in on his recording track (Insert A-E / plug-in / Other / Listento Mono / I/O: input One)
  • The Audiomovers window will open: the actor will log in / Copy the session link and share it via email or the Zoom chat with the sound engineer and the director.
  • The Sound Engineer will click on the link and will be prompted to the Audiomovers web page in order to get record and playback sound in real time from pro tools.
On the Director’s computer:
  • The Director connects his computer to the actor’s computer with Zoom and TeamViewer.
  • Same screen set up.
  • The Director will click on the link and will be prompted to the Audiomovers web page in order to get record and playback sound in real time from pro tools.
Once everybody is connected, the actor can mute his zoom microphone since he will be heard through Pro tools via Audiomovers The Sound Engineer is mainly in control during the session. The Director will work on VoiceQ on the same screen (script timeline and window media) so a large screen is recommended. He can also enable and disable the Full screen mode of the window media during recording. Proxy
  1. The sound engineer should get the Proxy in order to send himself the Pro Tools session and finalize the synchronization on his own computer once the session is over.
  2. This would be the case in which the actor’s mac is running mac OS Catalina that will not allow pro tools to import video.
  3. In this case it is advisable that the engineer gets the proxy in order to extract the original audio (production) and send it back to the actor. The engineer will then import the original audio as reference track into the actor’s Pro Tools to perform a more accurate sync and to be able to play the original audio (production) during the scene’s preview.
  4. In case the actor is running an OS different from Catalina there shouldn’t be any problem for Pro Tools to import the video and therefore the original audio to perform the sync and for the scene’s preview.
