Video Volume Booster

Amplify your video's hard-to-hear moments and boost your video volume in seconds, whether it’s a quiet interview or a soft-spoken podcast, vlog, or webinar. Descript combines an intuitive video editor with AI to offer multiple ways to increase the volume in your video projects.

How to increase the volume of a video

Step 1

Upload your video clip

Create a new video project in Descript and upload your video clip into the project. You can also create a new video from scratch by clicking the Record icon.

Step 2

Boost video volume

Select the video clip or audio track you’d like to boost the volume for in the timeline editor. In the panel to the right, under Audio, you’ll find the volume slider where you can adjust the decibels (dB), which controls the loudness of the audio output. Slide it right to increase video volume or left to decrease, and play it back to preview the sound. You can also click the '+' icon and select EQ to adjust the audio equalizer settings.

Step 3

Edit and export your video

Once you’re happy with how your video sounds, click the Publish button in the top right corner of the Descript app. You can export your video as an MP4 or share it directly to YouTube, Wistia, eWebinar, or other integrated video platforms. You can also generate a link to your video to share it privately or publish it publicly.
