Main features

Cueing Dialog - quick and easy

ADR Master offers many ways to create or edit ADR cue events. Create them directly in ADR Master, import them from a shooting script, from a text file stored in one of the supported formats (CSV, ADR Studio XML, Pro Tools Session Info text file, ...) or grab them directly from a timeline selection in Pro Tools.

The plethora of overlays ADR Master offers will help you organize your cues and make sure they match the picture perfectly.

Powerful dialog recording features

ADR Master is your perfect companion for recording dialogue - tightly integrated with Pro Tools. It provides all the cues your actors will need to deliver their best performance including wipes, countdowns, black screens, on-screen text and more.

ADR Master's track matrix lets you automate track mute, input and record states for each track in your Pro Tools session when rehearsing, recording or reviewing cues so you can concentrate on the actor's performance.

Live Events - the quickest way to record ADR!

Logging your ADR cues directly within Pro Tools? Ever wanted to rehearse, record or review them directly with overlays without leaving Pro Tools?

Now you can with ADR Master's new live events feature! Select a region in Pro Tools, hit a system-wide key command and go! ADR Master will extract the text and in/out point from the region and play the cue with prompts and text.

Quick and easy - and without leaving your DAW!

Video Device Support with Unrivaled Flexibility

ADR Master supports a wide range of video hardware devices from Blackmagic Design and AJA. It will present the video on all attached devices as well as the inbuilt player at the same time and will ensure that all the displays are in perfect sync.

ADR Master is the only solution on the market which even allows you to use two Blackmagic or AJA devices at the same time and assign different outputs to them (e.g. one masked for the talent and one clean for the director)

Try it out, and you will see how fast the system runs. You don't need a second computer as a video playback machine [...]. You just install it, then make a few adjustments to Pro Tools, and it runs. It's straightforward to use, and it has a lot of features that you will love after a while.

Other features

Overlays to transform your daily work
ADR Master provides flexible overlays, enabling the superimposition of all types of visual cues over the picture - useful in a whole range of scenarios. From simple on/off overlays for timecode or feet and frames to timed overlays for streamers, markers, flutters and ADR cues. Timed overlays can be programmed directly within ADR Master, but also triggered directly from your DAW or other MIDI-compatible equipment such as a keyboard or trigger pads.
Professional audio capabilities
ADR Master will playback all audio tracks a movie contains with up to 8 channels per track. Additionally, you can create audio tracks and drag audio files to them the same way you can in your DAW. ADR Master will draw audio waveforms and offer all audio-related features you are used to on your workstation such as flexible output routing and standard audio controls such as solo, mute, volume and pan on an individual track basis.
Ease your workflow with timelines

No matter if you're working on a reel-based feature film, commercials or a whole season of a TV or web series, ADR Master's timeline feature has you covered!

A project in ADR Master can contain several timelines, and each timeline can hold several video and audio tracks. Use one movie per timeline or all reels of a film, use several video tracks in one timeline or only one and instead use separate timelines - whatever aids your workflow. Edit video and audio regions to easily insert a rendered scene or have one timeline for a reel-wise and another for a tied version of the same film for presentation purposes - all in the same project and with minimal effort.
