New from Anchor: the first audio editing tools built specifically for podcasting

Now you can edit your podcast audio without needing anything but Anchor, available for free on iOS and Android. Like everything else from Anchor, these new editing tools make your life easier by providing everything you need to make your podcast sound great, and nothing you don’t.

Anchor has always been the easiest way to make a podcast, especially on mobile. Given our mission of democratizing creation for podcasters of all experience levels, we wanted to make sure that when we added the ability to edit, we actually made it easy, instead of just offering another complicated suite of tools. After experimenting with early versions of editing in our iPad app, we’re excited to officially unveil the first ever editing tools designed specifically for podcasting. These tools are available now in our iPhone, iPad, and Android apps and they’re coming soon to Anchor’s web platform.

Trim

Quickly trim the start and finish of your recording without needing to go into a heavy editing workflow. This is great for those times when you may have a false start at the beginning of your recording or a sign-off at the end that you decide not to include in the podcast (especially useful for when you’re recording with other people remotely!).

Split

You can also split a recording into multiple segments, and use them together in one episode or spread across multiple episodes. The split tool comes in handy for inserting transitions, voice messages from your listeners, your intro jingle, or any other audio into your existing podcast.

Rename segments while editing

Remove any audio you don’t want to use with a single tap. As you split up your audio, rename the segments you want to keep without breaking your workflow, so editing is lightning quick and your segments are easy to find and manage later.

Smart Flags

Add flags while you’re recording so you can easily come back to important points when you’re editing (either to remove them or to highlight them in your podcast). It’ll save you a ton of time — time that you can put back into recording more episodes!


With Anchor, it’s never been easier to make a podcast from anywhere, whether it’s on the daily commute, in a park, on your work break, or even while climbing Mount Kilamanjaro! We’re excited to be able to provide a way to polish up your podcast from anywhere, too. We can’t wait for you to give our new editing tools a try.
