Have you ever dreamt of starting a podcast, only to be discouraged by the technical complexities involved? If so, Adobe’s innovative tool, Adobe Podcast AI, might be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
Adobe Podcast AI, previously known as Project Shasta, is a cloud-based audio production tool designed primarily for podcast production, but its functionalities extend to anyone working with narrative audio. Still in its beta stage, Adobe Podcast Artificial Intelligence is currently available to applicants based in the US.
Reimagining Audio Editing
What sets Adobe Podcast Artificial Intelligence apart from traditional audio editors, including Adobe’s own Audition, is its unique, text-centric approach to editing. Instead of working with audio files, you’ll be working with a transcribed text document. Anything you record through Adobe Podcast Artificial Intelligence is automatically transcribed, and you have to edit the text to make the required changes, which are then reflected in the audio.
As Sam Anderson, Adobe Podcast’s Lead Designer, puts it, “We don’t think of Adobe Podcast as another audio tool. It really is a storytelling tool”. This shift in perspective prioritizes the content of your story over the technicalities of audio editing.
Simplified Editing and Guest Invitations
With Adobe Podcast AI, editing your podcast is as straightforward as editing a text document. Removing a sentence is as simple as highlighting it in the transcription and hitting the delete key. You can also cut/paste to move things around. However, it’s worth noting that this approach might require you to give away some control over the finer details of the editing process. Currently, the system does not allow for the addition or trimming of silence, for example. But according to Adobe, future updates may leverage Artificial Intelligence to handle these types of edits automatically.
Inviting guests to your podcast is also a breeze with Adobe Podcast AI. In the past, coordinating with guests to record and transfer large audio files could be a hassle. Now, your guests can simply accept an invite, much like a Zoom meeting, and you can chat in real time while the local audio is uploaded in the background. This results in a seamless and efficient way to get local audio, transcribed and ready to be edited.
Quality Audio with One Click
Perhaps one of the features of Adobe Podcast AI is its proprietary tool, “Enhance Speech.” With a single click, this magic button can transform poor-quality audio recorded in suboptimal conditions into professional-sounding content. This feature alone could save podcasters countless hours in post-production.
Adobe Podcast AI is more than just another audio tool. It’s a comprehensive, Artificially Intelligent powered suite of tools designed to make podcast production accessible to everyone. From recording and editing to mastering and noise removal, Adobe Podcast AI aims to simplify the podcasting process while maintaining a high level of quality.
A Look into the Future
As of now, Adobe Podcast AI is available in its beta version and is free for those who request and are granted access. The official launch date is unknown yet, but you can request early access on the Adobe website.
Adobe Podcast AI is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, meaning it’s cloud-based and easily accessible from anywhere. Its support system is primarily online, catering to a wide range of users and organization types, including mid-sized businesses, small businesses, enterprises, freelancers, nonprofits, and government organizations. Currently, the platform supports English.
Comprehensive Tool Suite
Adobe Podcast AI boasts a suite of features that make it a comprehensive tool for podcasters.
These include AI audio editing, live broadcasting, audio recording, podcast web hosting, reporting/analytics, audio-to-text transcription, and audio editing tools. It also supports multiple hosts/guests and offers features to create cover art, distribution tools, video support, and monetization/advertising management.

The platform targets professionals seeking an AI-powered audio recording and editing solution. The process of recording with others is as simple as sharing a link. Adobe Podcast AI ensures high-quality local recording, which it then syncs back together in the cloud automatically. Its ‘Enhance Speech’ feature removes background noise and sharpens voice frequencies, giving your podcast the quality of a professional studio recording.
Adobe Podcast AI is truly a game-changer in the world of podcasting. With its Artificially Intelligent powered features, ease of use, and focus on storytelling, it’s set to democratize the podcasting landscape, making it accessible to everyone from amateur podcast enthusiasts to professional broadcasters.
As we eagerly await its official launch, one thing is clear: the future of podcasting looks brighter, and certainly more convenient, with Adobe Podcast AI.
In the meantime, why not give the beta version a try? After all, it’s free, and it might just be the tool that turns your podcasting dreams into reality!
