Frequently Asked Questions
What is remote recording?
With remote recording, you can record multiple people when they’re not in the same room, without downloading an app or buying any equipment. You can use remote recording to conduct podcast interviews with people on the other side of the world, turn a live virtual class into timeless content, or record a meeting you couldn’t make.
How many guests can I record in a single remote recording session with Descript?
You can record up to 10 guests in a single recording session with Descript. That includes separate audio and video tracks for each person, all recorded locally and then uploaded to Descript.
How is Descript better than Zoom for remote recording?
Zoom is a video conferencing tool. That means its recording features were designed for remote work and virtual meetings. Descript is an all-in-one podcast and video editing solution with a remote recording studio baked in. So you can transcribe, edit, enhance, and then share your recordings as text, audio, or video content.
What are the differences between Descript and Riverside?
Riverside is a remote recording solution mostly focused on podcasters. Descript has a remote recording studio built into an end-to-end podcast-and-video editor packed with AI features like voice cloning, text-to-speech, image generation, and more. Compare Descript and Riverside to see for yourself.
What are some best practices for recording audio and video from two locations?
If you’re recording from multiple locations, each person should have a good internet connection, quality microphone, and a quiet environment. Descript lets you break a lot of those best practices with local multi-track recording that makes internet speed irrelevant, AI voice enhancement, and background noise removal with Studio Sound, and more.
