Descript purchased Lyrebird, a company that makes audio editing software, after launching the Overdub product. The acquisition enabled the company to launch Overdub, which allows users create templates of their voice with a typing program. The downside is that Overdub can only produce deep-fakes of your own voice, and cannot be used to create convincing audio deepfakes of other people. The company is focusing on expanding its product and adding new features.
