Version 27 Release

Custom branding

Descript Pro and Enterprise drives can now use their Drive name and logo instead of Descript’s on published pages and embeds, keeping all your Descript pages on-brand. Learn more about Custom Branding here.

Pause screen recordings on macOS

macOS users can now pause & resume screen and camera recordings from the recording dock.

Other changes

  • We fixed some bugs around duplicating projects, and any example projects you grab from the Learning Center should now show up in My Workspace.
  • You can now toggle whether your published pages show the author from the publish settings on the page.

Version 26 Release

Parametric EQ effect

In addition to our 10-band graphic EQ, Descript now has a 5-band Parametric EQ effect. Parametric EQs are great when you need more precise control over sculpting your sound. Learn more.

Progress bar clips

A common request from those of you making videos for sharing on social media, you can now add burnt-in Progress Bars to your videos. Learn more.

Other improvements and fixes

  • On the Mac, we've moved the Screen Recorder's timer and stop button from the menubar to a dock on the side of your screen, where it should be easier to use. It also gives us space to add upcoming features like a pause button. If you don't like the dock showing up in your recordings, set it to auto-hide in the screen recorder preferences
  • We've addressed quirkiness in the UI for moving a Project to a different folder.
  • When you submit an Overdub Voice for training from a training project, you'll be prompted with a recorder to capture your Voice ID.
  • We’ve made a small update to the Overdub model to get rid of a “metallic” sound that some users experienced. If this is you, head into your training project and re-submit for training to improve your Voice.

Version 25 Release

Drive View: filter to projects or recordings

The “All” tab in Drive View is now called “Home”, and lets you filter to view just projects or recordings. These filters also work with, and apply to the “Created by me”, “Shared with me” and “Downloaded” tabs. Existing filters in the “Pages” tab have been moved to the top-right for consistency.
