Simultaneously record unlimited tracks, add intros and outros, music, and effects. Each track is transcribed separately, and then combined into a single transcript with dynamically inserted speaker labels.
Descript automatically transcribes audio as you record, so you can edit audio or clean up scripted recording sessions in real-time. Streamline your editing process with Descript’s collaborative audio editing features. Instantly remove background noise with Studio Sound, or correct mistakes by typing with Overdub.
Computer audio recording
In addition to recording from external microphones, record the audio playing from your computer, both Mac and Windows.
When you delete or edit clips, the original source files are preserved and accessible from your Project’s media library.
Use Sequences to create groups of tracks that behave and appear as a single clip. A powerful tool for working with multiple tracks of voice or other groups of clips that need to stay in sync — and one you won’t find in any other digital audio workstation.
Cloud media library
Descript auto-saves all of your assets to the cloud, where they’re always available to you and your collaborators. Easy to organize, filter, and search.
All the features and editing tools you need for editing in timeline format. Adjust boundary trim, add crossfades, or expand or contract the space between words. All edits made in the timeline are synced to the script view — and vice-versa.
The Wordbar in Descript’s timeline enables you to quickly, intuitively adjust the space between words by clicking and dragging the words above the waveform.
Automatic room tone generation
An AI-powered feature that fills in clip gaps with room tone generated from your source material.
Mic bleed detection
Descript identifies mic bleed in a multi-track recording where all the mics were in the same room.
Include multiple timelines in a session, organize raw tape, pull in new material, and have different drafts — all in the same project.
Clip to Composition & copy highlights
Identify clips you want to save for later at the bottom of your composition. Easily pull your selects and copy to a clipboard using a keyboard shortcut.
Batch cut and paste audio search results
Quickly copy not just the word you searched for, but the whole sentence, then paste it into a new composition.
Shorten or remove silences
Adjust word gaps in a single click.
Powerful search features
Quickly locate words and phrases in your media.
Batch clip editing
Edit all properties of multiple clips (e.g. scale, position, volume) at the same time.
Draw volume curves or bring levels down when the recording gets hot.
Audio effects suite
A full suite of audio effects, including distortion, echo, flanger, bit crusher, reverb, compressor, limiter, ducking, noise gate, multiband EQ, and parametric EQ to make your post-production life easier.
Track & clip level effects
Easily apply video or sound effects on a single clip, across a whole track — or across your entire Composition.
Descript automatically sets the levels of new clips using loudness normalization to seamlessly maintain a high-quality audio experience.
Descript adds a microfade between edit boundaries, so you don’t have to go in and create zillions of little fades.
Normalize volume on imported media or when you export.
Automatically reduce the volume of other tracks (like background voice-over, music, effects, etc.) in a composition, anytime a clip is present on the enabled track.
Multiple-file audio or video exports to a folder on your hard drive.
Non-destructive timeline export
Export and open your project in another editor with all the tracks, clips, and fades intact. Your source files are preserved and intact in Pro Tools, Premiere, Final Cut Pro, and others.
Encode your show name, description, podcast episode name, and artwork; Export markers, line breaks, and all Compositions. Create separate files for every distinct line break.
