Descript, the maker of artificial intelligence audio editing software, is today launching a new subscription tier called Descript Pro with access to the Overdub feature.
Overdub, first released in beta last year, is a synthesis tool that allows you to efficiently create a double AI voice for yourself. That way, if you make a recording mistake, the software can fix it, and the end result still looks natural and natural. It’s like just creating an audio soundtrack, except that you’re doing it to correct your mistakes instead of trying to pretend to be something else.
Descript says Overdub is now an official feature when you start using Descript Pro, and it̵7;s available if you pay $ 30 a month (or $ 24 a month, charged annually). To date, Descript has offered a free tier, a manufacturer tier for $ 14 a month (or $ 10 a year), and a Team tier for $ 18 a month (or $ 15 a year). Both of these paid plans are combined into a cheaper offer, or what Descript calls the Developer Plan, for $ 15 per month or $ 12 per month on an annual fee. This includes everything except Overdub and the less transcription hours involved.
In addition to Overdub, the main selling point of Descrip is that it depicts audio editing as a kind of Google Docs-style program, so you can edit a podcast transcript or other form of audio recording as if it were a Word document and you should make changes. reflected in the playback. The description also acts as a video editor and transcription service, the latter of which includes AI and human-provided transcriptions for up to 30 hours for the Pro plan and a 10-hour Developer program with the option to purchase additional hours.
The company says its new tier also includes “exclusive access to advanced fill-in word management features, custom audiograms and flexible release and export options.” Fill word handling is a particularly useful ringing feature because Descrip says it can be used to “detect, ignore, and delete fill words such as“ you know, ”“ like, ”and“ kind ”to make the sound sound smoother and professionally.
CEO Andrew Mason says Threshold, “In an internal test, we found that removing fill-in words from Zoom meeting records reduces the length by about 10 percent.”
