Importing Riverside Recordings Directly Into Descript

Downloading files to your computer and then re-uploading them into Descript is a time-consuming task. Edit in Descript removes this process and streamlines your workflow to get you editing content quicker. This article covers how to get your Riverside recordings in Descript using the Edit in Descript integration.
