I have my podcast and I haven’t yet been able to invest in a super high-quality microphone. They’re expensive, bulky, and not ideal for my current situation. Adobe Audio Enhancer, is here to help everyone who records audio. It doesn’t matter if you’re recording on your laptop mic, a £20 mic from Amazon or the best of the best.
Adobe Audio Enhancer is an AI-audio enhancement tool that improves the sound quality of your audio recordings. It reduces background noise, reverberations, echos and those random sounds that you have no explanation for! Adobe Audio Enhancer uses machine learning algorithms to analyse your audio recordings to detect and remove the unwanted sound, all in a matter of minutes - which is super impressive.
As well as removing the unwanted sound, Adobe Audio Enhancer of course, enhances the recordings too. Adjusting volume levels, pitch and frequency so everything is more balanced and professional sounding. It’s a super easy tool to use. You don’t need to have any background in sound design whatsoever. Simply create an account, select your audio that you would like to enhance, wait for a few minutes and BAM, you’re enhanced audio is ready!
Now, you can use this tool for free. The free plan includes audio enhancements only, 30mins (max duration - per day), 500mb, Enhance speech, Mic Check test). Enough access to play around with the tool and see how you get on. The Express premium plan is where all the goodies are. This will cost you £9.98/month but you’ll gain access to bulk uploads, strength adjustments and increased enhancements, so it will sound like you’ve been recording in a podcast studio instead of your dining room table.
Something I would like to see in the free plan is more flexibility and customisation around the enhanced audio. Once your audio has been enhanced, that’s it. The only option is to the download the audio. If you did have any edits to it, you’d have to make these changes in another platform. I know the Adobe team are working on a Studio tool, which fills this gap perfectly. But, you currently have to request access for this and I wouldn’t be surprised if this is only accessible to paying users.
Adobe Audio Enhancer is a great option if you are on a tight budget and can’t afford a sound editor to run through your podcast with a fine tooth comb.
