The audio tool Synth was shut down earlier this fall.
The team behind Synth has turned their attention to their new project: Focusable. If you had recordings in there that you want, the site states “if you need help getting access to your content please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.” Hopefully, you’ll be able to recover what you need.
So, what if you were counting on Synth?
If you’re looking to facilitate audio discussions, you can use Flip, which is well-known for video discussions, but can also be used in mic-only mode, or Padlet, which has an audio option as well. You could also use Mote in a number of ways: doing it in Google Slides jumps out to me as a good way to facilitate discussions.
There certainly are other simple audio tools–Vocaroo, AudioVoiceRecorder.com, Cloud Audio Recorder, and more… but I think Flip, Padlet, and Mote might be the best for discussions. I could probably list 5 other potential options though!
