It's how you make a podcast.

Descript saves podcast creators from the technical drudgery of audio and video editing — so they can focus on making great content.
Makes me *want* to edit, can't believe I worked without Descript, far and away the best/coolest software I've ever used,  I love you so much,  can't imagine trying to edit any other way, impossibly futuristic,  best productization of machine learning I've ever seen,  one of the most earth-shatteringly spectacular pieces of software I've downloaded in years, makes me feel like I'm living in the future,  black magic,  mindbending... I don't know that I'll ever be able to edit audio in any other way again,  completely changes your expectations of a whole software category, the most thoughtfully designed app I've seen in several years, I’ve just experienced a new level of sorcery

We flipped the script on podcasting.

Descript is what you get when you build a podcast editing tool from scratch in a world with AI and stuff. No sound-engineering experience necessary — you just edit audio by editing text.

A whole lot of horsepower.

Beneath Descript’s shiny exterior you'll find a fully-powered, professional multitrack production engine — with everything you need to realize your most fantastical creative impulses.
