Question

What software do you use for editing podcast audio?

My background is in video, so I have tons of experience with the Adobe suite, but I'm just wondering if there's anything better than Adobe Audition.

Descript?

I'm biased, but suggest you check out descript.com!

I wanted to use descript to edit videos, but the killer feature was removing "umm"'s etc. in the text editor. It didn't seem you could do that yet. Was I missing something or is that not available for video?

It' available - but right now it will also edit the range of the video.

Wow you guys have come a long way. Looks absolutely incredible. As somebody who has spent too much time in Audition editing out umms and ahhs, this is perfect! Congrats Andrew!

Have recommended Descript to at least half a dozen friends in the NYC community who are working in podcasts. Holler if you're ever in town!

Acoustica Premium Edition

Tried Descript in its early days — seemed very promising… — will try it again soon. 🙂

If you're looking for an audio editor similar to Adobe Audition but without a subscription and with better automated noise removal, my pick is Acoustica Premium Edition (by Acon Digital).

…Both for Mac and Windows. New version coming in a couple of months with Catalina support.

No, I'm not affiliated with them. 😉

If you want something similar, but for iPad / iPhone, this is the one: Ferrite Recording Studio (by Wooji Juice).
