Launched in May this year, Soundtrap for Storytellers is a comprehensive podcast creation solution that offers all of the following features in the same service: recording, remote multi-track interviewing with video chat, smart transcribing and editing of the spoken-word audio file as a text document, full audio production capabilities, the publishing of its transcript to optimize SEO, and the publishing of the podcast to Spotify.

The interactive transcript and editing studio has proven to be extremely popular - it saves hours of time by enabling users to transcribe the spoken word live and edit the audio file as they would in a text document, eliminating the need to type out text or listen to the podcast over and over again. Initially only available in English, now anyone who speaks French, Spanish, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Portuguese or Swedish will use this transcribing solution in their mother tongue.

Equipped with a wide range of intuitive features, Soundtrap for Storytellers allows podcasters to focus on the art of storytelling by significantly reducing the time and investment typically needed to make podcasts sound professional. The full suite of services can be accessed via desktop, and a select set of recording and editing features is available on iOS and Android. Additional tools:

Collaborate and Remotely Interview Guests: Soundtrap for Storytellers enables podcasters to seamlessly collaborate with others from anywhere around the world. The platform is cloud-based and allows multiple people to talk, record (on separate tracks) and work on the same podcast by sending a link to join the session remotely.

Increase Discoverability: Publish your podcast transcript to increase SEO, drive traffic to your podcast and gain new fans.

Sound Effects: Create your own jingle and complete your production with sound design using Soundtrap’s built-in instruments and loops, and access an enormous sound library without having to leave the studio.
