An audio trimmer to edit your recordings or reduce the length of your audio files for a superior listening experience. With Descript, if you can edit a Word doc, you can trim MP3s, AIFFs, and other popular audio formats.
Trimming audio is easy in Descript. You can edit your podcast by editing text. Or remove extra silence in your interview recording, shorten music, add audio effects in the timeline, or add fade-outs and cross fades between clips — it’s a fully powered audio trimmer.
Download the Descript App by clicking the link below. Remember — it’s free.
Import your audio recording, in any file size, in just about any audio format (mp3 file, WAV, WMA, FLAC, etc.) from your computer to get started. Click on the ? in the lower-right corner to see some helpful tutorial videos.
Once you're done with your audio editing, your trimmed audio will be ready to publish.
Descript is editing software built on AI that does magical stuff like fixing bad audio with Studio Sound, synthesizing your voice with Overdub, and exporting your media files at blazing-fast speed. Best of all, it lets you edit your audio just like you edit in a word processor.
After you’re done removing all the unwanted parts of your podcast or whatever, you probably want to add music or other ambient effects, like your ringtone (which is just a recorded version of you screaming “ring-ring!”). To add music, a sound effect, or any audio file, you can simply right-click, and drag the file into your script where you want it to play. For more information on fine-tuning your audio, watch the tutorials in our Help Center.
Use a Sequence to group tracks into a single Clip with a combined transcript. Sequences are created automatically when you create a multitrack recording, or if you import multiple tracks, such as music files, that were recorded outside of Descript.
Whether you want to extract audio from a file from your iPhone, Mac, or a non-Apple product, Descript supports most audio formats (except WAV files that are more than 2 channels and OGG files).
All the ones you really need. While Descript started out as a glorified transcription tool, it has evolved to become a fully powered audio editor. It doesn’t have all the features you’ll find in legacy DAWs — but the ones it’s missing aren’t really necessary for 99% of creators.
Not only is Descript amazing for audio files, but with the video editor functionality you can also do your video editing right there in the transcript.
