About the Company

In 2018, we released our ‘Podcast Production' web application – Alitu: The Podcast Maker. It's designed to automate podcast production for regular Podcasters and content creators. The user uploads an audio file, or records it right into the app. Then, our system cleans it up, adds branding & transitions, applies user editing and publishes it, mostly automatically. We also provide a range of other features to allow the user to record themselves, record calls, edit recordings, add music and other tasks required to create a great podcast. > Learn more about what we do here
