Do you have multiple team members collaborating on an audio or video project? Do you work with a video or audio editor? Are you frustrated by all the back-and-forth?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are probably familiar with the tedious process required to get your content publish-ready. That process can include a combination of offline and online messaging through multiple channels like email, text, Slack, phone, or in-person. Your content is all over the place. You can’t find previous audio or footage. Simple tasks take way longer than they should. Yuck.
Look no further. We’ve made some huge improvements to Sonix for teams (Business Plan). Now you can invite users with different permissions to access, edit, or upload content.
One of the biggest challenges with audio & video content production is navigating the huge amounts of footage and audio. Before Sonix, there wasn’t a great way to store all this content and make it easily searchable. We fixed that. Now anyone on your team can easily search transcripts of video or audio to pinpoint key parts in seconds. Production teams will have every file at their fingertips. Not only that, marketing teams can easily find files / images that can be repurposed into blogs, podcasts, or other web content.
Sonix continues to push the boundaries of audio & video production and distribution. We will continue to re-imagine how people create and share media.
Getting fast, accurate transcription is critical, but it’s really just the starting point for Sonix. One of the greatest time-saving benefits occurs after you’ve received a transcript. We call it the AudioText™ editor.
Let me explain…
The word processor (eg. MS Word) is one of the most amazing software tools ever created. It takes a new user less than five seconds to figure out how to use it and provides enormous utility. It’s no wonder it is still one of the most popular software applications on the market today. Compare that with the most popular audio editing software apps. They are all quite complex. If you’ve ever edited audio, you’ve likely cursed about spending days editing waveforms. You wish you could simply just edit the text.
So what if you could edit voice audio by editing text instead of looking at a jumbled timeline of waveforms? What if you could actually edit words and have that affect the audio? And what if you could invite other users to collaborate on the same project?
Well now you can!

To be clear, Sonix isn’t a replacement for software like Final Cut Pro, Adobe Audition, or Adobe Premiere. We see Sonix as your “pre-editor”. What we are solving is the tedious and time-consuming back-and-forth process between storyteller and audio engineer. We virtually eliminate the mundane work that is involved in every project. And if you play both roles (storyteller & audio engineer), you will find that when you edit text, you can truly focus on the storyline, not fine-tuning sound and levels. Sonix allows you to separate your thinking from storyteller to audio engineer.
The reason Sonix’s AudioText editor™ is possible today is because automated speech recognition has not only gotten so good, but it is also amazingly inexpensive (8 cents / min). Sonix leverages APIs from some of the largest tech companies on the planet and combine our own proprietary algorithms to deliver fast, accurate transcription. We have been independently reviewed to have the most accurate transcription among automated services.1
We hope you enjoy using Sonix as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it. As more AI-powered tools emerge, Sonix will continue to push the boundaries of audio & video production and distribution. We will continue to reimagine how people create and share media.
Audio transcription is complicated. We are here to simplify it.
At its very basic level, audio transcription converts audio or video files to text. As we have started on this journey, we quickly realized that audio transcription is a solution to a large variety of problems. And we are discovering new use cases each day.
We strongly feel that the technologies surrounding audio transcription (AI, ML, NLP) and the workflows will dramatically improve over the next few years. It is an exciting time.
What is the point of a resource center?
It’s simple. As we learn new concepts, use cases, workflows, and technology, we want to share those learnings with our community. We want Sonix to make people’s lives better. And the best part? There are a lot of ways for us to do so.
We are just getting started. If you have any questions or want to learn more, feel free to email us.
