Soundtrap is an audio editing platform that allows you to transform spoken word into text and edit your recording as you would a text document. This significantly reduces the amount of time you would spend editing audio files.
Soundtrap also offers features for increasing discoverability. Both the audio file and the automatic transcript can be uploaded to Spotify.
If you want to host a podcast with other people, Soundtrap creates interview links that you can send to anyone so they can join your podcast remotely.
Spext is an audio editing platform that simplifies the process of editing podcasts. It creates automatic transcripts of recording from which you can edit out sections, remove filler words (which are highlighted in the text) and add background music. On top of this, you can merge tracks while still having an idea of your final episode run time.
Spext works by making use of APIs like Google and also syncs audio + transcribed text and represents silence/ music textually. Spext offers various membership prices and allows up to 4 hours a month of uploads on its free plan.
AI-based automatic audio optimization web service for podcasts. Includes tools like adaptive leveling for correction levels between speakers, loudness normalization, high/low pass filters, noise and hum reduction, speech recognition for transcripts and show notes, audiograms for youtube and publishing.
