Each user in a Business account has a seat to create Studios, invite participants, record, and access the recording files.

Separate tracks

About High Quality Tracks

These are the high-quality audio & video recording files you can download for each participant. This gives you more control in post-production.


Organize Your Studios and Recordings

The Studio is where your recordings take place and where you can access the files after you're done. You can customize the settings for each Studio.

Audience members can join as viewers, but won't be part of the recorded call unless they call-in.

Riverside Editor

Editor (Overview)

What does "unlimited recording and editing" mean?

Our built-in editor gives you powerful tools to create a polished, final video or create short excerpts. Enhance audio, trim content, switch speaker layouts, and use the transcript to remove parts you don't want.

Text-based Editing

Edit a Recording using the Transcript

Search and trim your recording using the transcription of the conversation that Riverside generates automatically. It's as easy as editing a doc.


About Clips and Combined Recordings

Easily create bite-size clips from preset layouts to share highlights on social media and wherever you publish your podcast.

Screen Sharing (Overview)

Hosts, Guests or Producers can easily share their screens during a session. Each screen share will be recorded as a separate track, giving creators full control during post-production.

Live Call-Ins

Riverside Live Call-In (Overview)

Audience members can participate in a live session and be recorded like a Guest.

Presentation recorder

Share a Presentation (Overview)

Upload presentations to present during the call. These are recorded locally in an aligned separate track so you have a high-quality version to use in post-production.
