Descript, in general, is a fantastic tool for editing audios and videos, but because it has a lot of features – removing silence, ums and uhs, voice enhancement, it tends to take a lot longer to export the final file.
Which one do you use and why? Let me know in the comments!

Updates from Recut’s creator Dave – as of June 2022
“Over the last few months (ok like 9 months) I\’ve been rewriting the app from scratch to work on both Windows and Mac. It’s actually a whole new app now, with some new features too.
• Multi-track support – if you record your camera and mic separately, or if you record game footage with multiple audio streams, Recut can now work with all of those tracks on the same timeline without having to merge them beforehand.
• More file formats – the Mac version of Recut was always limited to the formats that QuickTime could read. This meant it couldn’t work with MKV files, 10-bit 422 footage, and a range of other things. The new version of Recut is powered by ffmpeg, which supports a huge variety of files.
• Works on Windows – The app works on both operating systems now, and you only need to own 1 copy to use it on both.
If you already own a copy of the original Mac app, you don’t need to buy it again. Your same license key will work with the new version available at getrecut.com
Heads up if you use the original Mac app, there are a few features that didn’t make it into this first release – namely: the ability to select and delete silent and audible segments, the ScreenFlow export option, and the screen recorder. I’m working on bringing these features over soon.
If you don’t already own a copy of Recut, now is a great time to check it out! It’s 20% off to celebrate the new launch 🎉 Use the coupon LAUNCH at checkout.
