Audio Design Desk AI app auto syncs audio to video

Audio Design Desk is unlike any other audio editing software. The software features AI-assisted content creation that promises to help users create unique soundtracks in seconds.

Audio Design Desk uses AI-assisted content creation tools to enable filmmakers, editors, sound designers and creators to edit sound in real-time. This new tool has already been winning accolades. For instance, it was on the shortlist of the 2020 SXSW Innovation Awards in the Music & Audio category. According to Audio Design Desk, the audio design app comes with more than 22,000 sounds and can cut down a full day’s work down to just a few minutes.

How does Audio Design Desk cut down time in post-production?

Using the company’s Sonic Intelligence tech, every single sound in the library is assigned identifying characteristics and carries an embedded sync point. This is what cuts down audio creation and editing time. This means that as sounds are previewed and chosen, they are automatically added to the timeline in the exact right position relative to the video. Additionally, you can import video files into the app and press H for hits, R for rises, D for drone making it a Smart Sampler. Then users can strike the keys to position sound elements in real-time while watching the video playback.

This means users can use “the QWERTY keyboard to play like an instrument,” according to the press release.

If you would rather select audio manually, Audio Design Desk’s can search, audition, and place sounds from the timeline. You won’t need to parse through libraries, import sounds and then sync those sounds to video.

Automatic learning

According to the company, “understands where sound connects to video.” Also, uses AI and has built the foundation for Machine Learning (ML) that understands which sounds a user likes and which sounds they don’t over time. So basically, the AI system learns what a user usually likes and adjusts it to their tastes.
