Hi everyone! Andrew here, CEO of Descript. When we started Descript a few years ago, this is the release we always had in our minds - an end-to-end podcast production studio wrapped in a user experience that was as approachable and flexible as a document. Whether you're a seasoned podcaster or a newcomer, we hope you'll download Descript and give it a try - we've found it really makes you interact with audio in a new and more creative way. I take that back: by joining forces with Lyrebird, this release turned into something far beyond what we could have imagined. With the release of Overdub, you can now correct your voice recordings by typing. It's the first of many AI-powered features we plan to ship together to reduce the friction of creative expression. You can try a demo and sign up for the beta here: descript.com/lyrebird-ai I'll be hanging around the comments today (and so will the Lyrebird founders, The Lyrebird founders, @kundan2511, @adbrebs and Jose Sotelo) to answer any questions you might have.

@kundan2511 @adbrebs @andrewmason Holy Moly! Are you folks for real? That's the best video ever. Also, the SaaS has a great free version. You mean business. This is EXACTLY what I need to finally start that podcast. I'mma singin' up.

@andrewmason absolutely love your product but the last 2 encounters with your customer service/helpdesk people has left me cold - to the point I wont be using your software past my renewal date of next year. I dont know if you outsourced it or your people are stressed or reading from scripts but MAN - They're ruining what is otherwise a pretty amazing prodcut.

@kundan2511 @adbrebs @andrewmason I've been geeking out about DeScript for the past 3 days straight, it's revolutionary. I don't use this word much. But it is. Just mindblowing. From the trailer (Sandwitch videos are the best) to the tutorial inside the product itself, to the UI that's amazing, to the editing experience which makes editing audio and video as simple as editing a word doc, to the AI generated voices, to the insance OverDub feature, to the fact that everything is synced to the cloud all the time. Just... Amazing all around.

I've been looking for a tool that would allow me to "type" podcast ad reads and output with my voice to save me time and avoid long approval delays. I'll have to give the new Descript a try.

@rrhoover an entire AI-generated ad, interesting! Let us listeners know if/when you try this. Definitely curious to hear accuracy of this beyond more than a few words hear and there.

This looks amazing—congrats on getting it here, folks! I've been looking at Descript since the early days and seeing it turn into such a mature and futuristic take on audio editing is awesome. Major kudos for the video too, it's hilarious. I'm guessing it was Sandwich's work? :)
