It takes more than one tool to tell stories in audio and video, and jumping between tools is one of the more tedious parts of making a podcast or a video. 

You can do a lot in Descript, but you may use another app for recording. Definitely for live streaming. If you have a podcast, you have to host it somewhere. That means a lot of moving massive files between those apps. Downloading from your recording tool then uploading to Descript. Exporting from Descript to your hosting service. 

All that downloading, importing, and dragging stuff around is just drudgery. Tedious, error-prone drudgery — the very kind of drudgery we’re committed to eradicating, so you can focus on making something, not moving files around. 

That’s why we build integrations with other tools. We know creative work is inherently messy and inefficient, and we want to streamline all the parts that don’t have to be that way – like moving between tools. 

“Anytime multiple tools are integrated into our editing system it makes our production work more efficient and easier to operate,” says Eric Goranson, Host of the Around the House podcast.

Plus it’s a fully powered editing suite that does everything you need to make a great podcast. If you know how to edit a doc, you’re ready to get started.
Descript makes editing audio as easy as editing text.

Today, we unveiled a new set of upcoming integrations that soon will let you jump from recording in Riverside or SquadCast to editing in Descript by clicking a single button — it says “Edit in Descript.” No more waiting for files to download then upload; no more accidentally uploading the wrong quality file to Descript and having to start the process over again. 

And now when you record a livestream in Restream, you'll soon be able to click “Edit in Descript” to open a new project. So you can seamlessly edit out all the rough edges in your full live stream to publish it as a podcast, or on YouTube (also seamless). Or cut it up into short promotional clips you can use on social media. 

And if you need to update a podcast episode you published with Captivate, you'll soon be able to click “Edit in Descript” there, make edits like adding or fixing captions, swapping out ads, or fixing mistakes. Then you can republish to Captivate, without impacting your analytics in any way. 

We worked with all four of these top-notch partners to build shortcuts that would make material improvements in your workflow. Our hope is that the process of moving between these apps and Descript will feel almost as smooth as if you never changed apps at all. 

We also hope to have more Edit in Descript integrations for you soon. Stay tuned. And let us know if you’ve got a tool you’d like to see integrated into you Descript workflow. To request API documentation, you can fill out this form.
