Today we've released our speecheditor, a web app for editing and adding musical scores to audio stories. Instead of editing speech using waveforms, the speecheditor allows you to edit audio with text, like a word processor. Likewise, it allows users to easily loop musical tracks and add musical underlays à la This American Life. The speecheditor is described in detail in our paper, "Content-based Tools for Editing Audio Stories."

The speecheditor is research code. To that extent, this release is a polished prototype – there are bound to be bugs that arise (please file those on the github issues page!) but we've had a lot of fun editing audio stories with this system and we believe it's a powerful paradigm for DAWs of the future. We're excited to have other creators try it out!
