Resound, a new editing app that uses AI to automatically removes stuttering and pauses from podcasts, has announced that it has raised $1.35M in pre-seed funding.
Their website explains, “A boutique podcast production company in Louisville, KY by the name of Resonate Recordings discovers that by training a machine-learning algorithm to automatically remove ‘ums’ and ‘ahs’ from podcast episodes, they can cut the podcast editing process down from hours, to minutes. They decided to name their new creation ‘Resound.'”
“We’ve learned from first-hand experience how tedious, time-consuming, and frustrating editing your podcast can be. Many podcasters report it takes them three to four hours to edit a one-hour podcast,” said Jacob Bozarth, Resound’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Resound exists to save creators time so they can automatically edit the mistakes out of their show in minutes, not hours.”
