Descript just released the biggest update to their audio/video editing tool so far this year. Say hello to Studio Sound 1.0, new audio effects, better Overdub, and more.
New Features & Improvements
- Studio Sound 1.0
Studio Sound is an AI-powered noise reduction and audio enhancement which is now out of beta. You can now turn it on as a default setting for new recordings, either in the editor or in Descript’s screen recorder. Descript also added an intensity dial, which allows you to fine tune the strength of the effect. Finally, you can control the effect from the normal effects menu in the Inspector, allowing you to tweak it without leaving your composition.
- A Full Suite Of Audio Effects
Descript released more than a dozen new audio effects with easy-to-use presets to give you the same level of mixing and creative control that you would expect in a DAW. Enjoy mixing effects such as a compressor, a limiter, a noise gate, and ducking as well as creative effects like reverb, pitch shifting, distortion, and a flanger.
- Improved Overdub
They have substantially improved the Overdub voice quality, eliminating a “wobbliness” issue that’s affected many voices since its launch. Setting up a Descript voice has become easier too. You can now create a voice from recordings in an existing Descript composition (instead of recording a long script) and start creating Overdub placeholder text immediately. Once your voice is trained, they will then automatically generate audio.
- Video Player With Interactive Transcript & Slack Integration
Descript’s embeddable video player now comes with an interactive, searchable transcript. In addition, they have partnered with Slack to make their videos play inline.
Finally, they made some improvements to the editor and added a new Transistor integration for podcasters, a powerful podcast hosting and publishing platform.
