Free AI Audio Enhancer Turns Trash Audio into Pristine Audio

AI may be changing everything, but this AI audio enhancer only wants to change your audio… from thin, noisy, and lame to full, optimized, and awesome. 

Audio quality is key. The best looking video in the world isn’t going to keep viewers if the sound is a letdown. If you’ve ever recorded amazing footage only to be disappointed by middling audio quality — or if you’ve ever spent hours in post trying to fix non-awesome audio — this is the tool for you.

It’s called Adobe Podcast AI. It’s free, assuming you:

  1. Use the Adobe AI audio enhancer with audio files (see Adobe Podcast AI Audio Enhancer supported file types
  2. Use Adobe AI audio enhancer on files 30 minutes or less
  3. Use the free AI audio enhancer with files under 500MB 
  4. Only need to enhance 1h of audio a day

Some more advanced features are pay gated for Adobe Express Premium (US$12.99/mo.) users but most content creators will be able to work within the limitations of the free AI audio enhancement too. 

Why Audio Quality Matters And How AI Audio Enhancers Help

There’s no replacement for good audio gear (take our picks for the best podcast mics for example) but even the best audio gear can still pick up noise… which this AI audio enhancer tool can eliminate… or at least tone down. 

Whether it’s a YouTube video, a short film, or a podcast, high-quality audio can be the deciding factor between captivating your audience or losing them to another creator. Clear, crisp audio keeps your audience engaged, enhancing the overall impact of your content.

Transforming Your Audio with Adobe’s AI Audio Enhancer Tool

Enough preamble. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to elevate your audio using Adobe’s free AI audio enhancer:

  1. Prepare Your Video: Start with the video you want to enhance. If you’re worried about the 30 minute / 500MB limit (or the daily 1h limit) in Adobe’s free AI audio enhancer, do your “selects” first so you’re not optimizing audio on clips that will end up on the cutting room floor.
  1. Export the Audio: Once you’ve selected your video, export the audio track as a supported file type (see below).
  2. Enhance with Adobe’s AI: Visit Adobe’s AI audio enhancement page. Drag and drop your exported audio file into the designated area on the website.
  3. Wait for the Magic: This free AI audio enhancement tool is pretty quick but for longer audio files, you might have time to grab a coffee while you wait. 
  4. Download and Sync: Download the enhanced audio file and drop it into your video editing software. You can replace the original audio but muting it makes it easier to ensure everything is still synced. 
  5. Final Adjustments: Make any final adjustments to ensure the audio syncs perfectly with your video.

– I have a secret that you need to know about. If you wanna take your audio from this to this, listen up. If you’re looking to level up your audio without breaking the bake, I have a tool for you that’s gonna blow your mind more than chat GPT itself. – Oh. – Oh yeah, we don’t need this mic. It’s not even plugged in anything.


Did I mention that it’s free? It’s from Adobe and you don’t even need an account. Stand until the end and I’ll show you how to take rookie level audio to professional of audio in just 60 seconds. Have you ever watched a video with stunning visuals and super cinematic footage but you struggled to keep watching because the audio was not clear? Or have you ever listened to a podcast that kept you drawn in because of the crystal clear sound you just had to watch? This isn’t even plugged in.


I don’t know why I’m using this. Look, it’s not a secret that audio is a critical component if not the most important component when it comes to making videos. When making a video, your audio can be the difference between someone clicking off to find something else or staying to watch what you have to say.


Whether you’re making content on your phone, a DSLR camera or mirrorless camera, audio is a make or break. Let me show you. This audio you’re hearing is from my Sony A7III and we’re almost two feet away from the actual onboard mic where the sound is being picked up. Typically, when you film with an onboard mic with a mirrorless or a DSLR camera, there tends to be a lot of background noise.


This is what it sounds like inside my apartment without enhanced audio. This is what it sounds like with the enhanced audio. That was pretty cool. Hang on, what if we go outside? I’m glad you asked. (loud noise coming from wind) Okay, we are outside right now on my balcony and this is what it sounds like with the enhanced audio.


Let me turn off the enhanced audio for you. (loud noise coming from wind) Yeah, that’s not pleasant. I’m gonna switch to my iPhone so you can also hear the difference. This is what it sounds like with the enhanced audio line. Now I’m gonna switch the enhanced audio off so you can hear what it sounds like.


There’s a lot more background noise and it definitely doesn’t sound as clear. Okay, so this AI tool is no joke. If you’re someone who doesn’t have the money to invest in a microphone quite yet, this free tool does a great job. Let’s head back inside because I need to show you how you can use this AI tool for your videos.


But before we go, do me quick favor, hit subscribe below. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. (soft music) Okay, awesome. Let’s put 60 seconds up here on the screen. I’m gonna show you an under 60 seconds how simple and easy this is. The only way to start the timer, however, is by hitting the like button below, but don’t start it yet..


I’m gonna show you inside my video editing software exactly what to do. You can use whichever video editing software you prefer. Okay. Hit the like button and start the timer. Open your editing software and import the video you wanna use to enhance your sound. Once you have it imported, you’re going to export the audio only.


This is important. You want to make sure you’re exporting in an MP3 or WAV file. Once the audio is exported, go to or check the link in the description for you to check it out. Take your exported audio and drag your clip into the box that says drag and drop audio. Depending on the length of your audio, it may take a few seconds up to a couple minutes.


Download the audio file when it’s done. The final step is to take that downloaded audio, drag it underneath the original audio of the video that you have and replace it within the timeline. You can do one of two things. You can completely remove the audio from the clip and delete it, or you can just cancel out and disable the audio from the original clip and replace it with the downloaded audio.


And there you go. I think we did pretty good on time and we were able to do it in under 60 seconds. Before you go, here’s a couple things to keep in mind. Number one, control your setting as best as possible. You don’t wanna have a lot of access background noise if you don’t have to. The enhancer will take into account any background noise or any other extra noise within your video.


Do your best to be in as quiet of a setting as you can. Number two, the best microphone is the one you readily have available to you. You don’t need to go spending tons of money on a brand new microphone. It can enhance your audio by being able to control sound more. But if you’re just starting out, you don’t need to make that purchase just yet.


Start where you are with what you have. Hope this video helped and see you in the next one. (cool upbeat music)
