It’s common to rave about the power of artificial intelligence in the areas of text (like ChatGPT) or images (Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, etc.). However, if there is one area where AI is achieving remarkable performance, it is in audio. This makes Whisper, the speech recognition tool developed by OpenAI (inventor of ChatGPT), far superior to Apple’s Siri. In addition, many cleaning tools seem to restore the appearance of a poor quality recording.

It’s good to know that some tools can literally “save” a voice recording. We have experienced this in practice. Let’s imagine you shot a clip or recorded an interview in a less than optimal environment (background noise, strong wind, etc.). A good sound cleaning tool can create a completely usable audio file for a YouTube video or podcast. We’ll find out with a specific tool: Adobe Podcast AI.

Adobe Podcast AI

This Adobe tool can take a poor quality recording and convert it by reducing unwanted background noise. In addition, it transforms recorded voices and gives them a professional color. You can access Adobe Postcast AI by clicking this link.

To use this service, you must have an Adobe account. If not, click the blue “Login” button. You can then provide an email address or, to save time, use your Google, Facebook or Apple account by selecting the corresponding icon.

If you already have an Adobe account, you will then need to click Sign in and again either provide an email address or select a Google, Facebook, or Apple account.

Daily quota

As you can see after signing up, Adobe Podcast AI is very generous when it comes to free use: you can task it with processing up to 30 minutes of recordings or even 500MB of data – which is huge for audio. And the daily limit is one hour of recording.

However, in this free version you can only edit one file at a time. If you have very large needs and this tool meets your expectations, you should consider a paid version by clicking the “Upgrade” button on the top right.

Improve a recording

Drag the audio file that needs to be enhanced directly above the “Drop Files to Enhance” label or select it on the disc by clicking “Select Files.”

Adobe Podcast AI recognizes the main audio formats: MP3, WAV, AAC, etc. If your recording was encoded in another format such as the iPhone’s M4A, it must first be converted – many online services offer this.

Once the file is loaded into Adobe Podcast AI, the improvement will begin and you just have to be patient.

Once the file has been processed, it will appear in the interface with “Advanced” right after the name. Then you can listen to it. You should notice a significant improvement, including the elimination of unwanted noise.

All you have to do is download it (Download) or apply the process to another file (Upload).
