Frequently Asked Questions

What does a podcast editor like Descript do?
Descript lets you record, edit, and publish podcasts with the power of AI. While most podcast editing software forces you to use a traditional timeline, Descript's text-based editor lets you edit your audio and video in the transcript—it’s as easy as typing in a doc. You can effortlessly remove filler words and background noise with a single click, add voice-overs, and correct audio mistakes using AI voice cloning, all in a single app.
Should I hire someone to edit my podcast?
While you could hire someone to edit your podcast, Descript makes it possible to do it yourself by giving you an easy-to-use tool that’s also as powerful as professional tools. Plus, Descript’s free collaboration tools allow you to share your content with other editors; they can add comments just like in a Google doc, and even make edits. Because it’s all in the cloud, you’ll be able to view different versions and restore them if you want.
Can I record podcast interviews remotely with Descript?
Yes, Descript allows you to record podcast interviews remotely. Whether it's audio-only or in 4K video, your podcast co-hosts and guest interviews will be recorded in crystal-clear audio and video, all from the comfort of your home (or wherever your recording studio is located).
What audio formats does Descript support for podcast recording, editing, and publishing?
Descript projects support most common audio file formats, including WAV, MP3, AAC, AIFF, M4A, and FLAC. You can even publish your podcasts directly to your favorite hosting service. If you've created a video podcast, you can publish it directly to YouTube from Descript.
