It’s how you make a podcast.

The power of professional tools. The simplicity of a doc.
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, would not be capable of making my podcast without Descript,  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,  far superior to any DAW, 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 creation tool from scratch in a world with AI and stuff. No audio 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.
