You can record, edit, mix, collaborate, and then export — it’s powerful stuff, made simple enough you don’t need any experience. So, go on, start a podcast.


2. Record guests remotely

Host and guest not in the same location? No problem. You can record both of your tracks in Descript. Here’s how to connect a Zoom or Skype call to Descript using Loopback. (Try Total Recorder on Windows.)

4. Transcribe meeting notes

Don’t miss the entire meeting taking notes — Descript can do that. Simply share the Project and your collaborators will get the audio and the notes in one easy-to-search spot. Add comments, edit, pull out highlights, and search for anything.
