Clean up your messy audio in seconds with this tool from ElevenLabs

Audio is one of the more overlooked aspects of content creation. You can spend hours setting up the perfect shot, tinkering with the lighting, angles, and bokeh, but all that can be ruined if you don’t consider background noise. Who wants to hear the honks of traffic while watching an interview? 

ElevenLabs, the text-to-speech AI platform that raised $80 million from A16Z, Sequoia, and others, just announced its newest tool, Voice Isolater. This tool can seemingly take even the noisiest videos, remove the background noise, and leave your dialogue sounding crystal clear. 

Say you just recorded a podcast episode for YouTube, but halfway through, a fire engine speeds down the road, blaring its sirens. With the Voice Isolator tool, you can drag and drop that clip into the studio, and your audio gets cleaned up with the press of a button. 

You can see for yourself by watching the demo. During it, a member of the team records audio while a leafblower goes off. With the press of a button, the leafblower is automatically muted, and you can hear the dialogue fairly clearly. 

Alongside the user-facing platform, the team also announced an accompanying API for developers to build their platforms using the Audio Isolation technology. Once implemented, you can integrate the same AI-powered audio clean-up technology into your product.

If you want to give it a shot, it seems pretty easy to implement. In the launch demo, a team member uses Claude and Replit to quickly whip up a mock app that uses the API to clean up any YouTube video’s audio just by pasting the URL.

This tool raised $22M from YC’s Garry Tan to automate your company’s finances

Managing your company’s finances is one of the hardest parts of being a startup founder. When you boil it down, everything comes back to the bottom line. You need to ensure there's adequate runway to meet any challenges, pay employees, invest in R&D, and pay for equipment. That’s just a start. 

Needless to say, being on top of finances is key, and there are tools to help. Runway Financial is one of them. The team recently raised $22.75 million from Garry Tan and Initialized Capital before CEO Siqi Chen made the platform live to the general public. 

Runway’s platform is marketed as a “modern, user-friendly interface for financial modeling, headcount planning, departmental budgeting, and more.” It can connect to over 650 business tools, including all the platforms you might use for things like accounting, human resources, customer relationship management, etc. 

By doing this it automatically ensures that all of your important documents, such as financial documents, are up to date, so you don’t have to waste time looking for a contract you need to reference.

Unsurprisingly, it comes with a heavy dose of AI. It ships with “Ambient Intelligence,” a suite of AI features that live in the background designed to help teams dig deep into their finances for insights and automate workflows—all without needing to be prompted. 

Alongside some of the more hidden AI features, Runway Financial also ships with a generative AI assistant aptly named ‘Runway Copilot,’ which can help users generate and model any kind of financial scenario. All you have to do is type a prompt, and the copilot will pull in data from the relevant connected tools and use it to generate a business plan and projection.
