Silence Detection

How to find and remove boring silence from your audio

Updated over a week ago

Resound’s Silence Detection automatically identifies long and boring silences that will distract your audience and lead to listener drop-off. It works by analyzing your waveform to find segments that fall below a specific threshold of loudness.

Resound detects silences that are 2 seconds or longer that are -50 DB or quieter.

There are two ways to cut silences:

  • Manually review each edit for the highest accuracy (recommended)

  • Cut all silences in a single click

How it works (Step-by-step)

  1. Log into Resound at

  2. Upload your file(s)

  3. Resound processes your audio, detecting filler sounds and silent regions

  4. Review each edit manually or click Settings > Cut All Silences to remove them in a single click

  5. Export your edited file to upload to your podcast hosting app or continue editing
