How To Make A Sound on TikTok

Now that your profile is all set up, you might be wondering just how to make a sound on TikTok when you've created that all-star video that's bound to go viral. 

When it comes to making a video, most people only focus on the organization of their ideas for content and end up ignoring the video's sound. However, the right sound could be key to making that video viral and increasing the number of viewers, shares, and likes you get. Therefore, you must learn how to make a sound on the platform before posting.

How To Make A Custom Sound

  1. Open TikTok and tap on the plus icon to create a new video.
  2. Hold on to the red button to start the recording and the audio in the video will automatically be the custom sound. To stop the recording, simply tap the red circle again.
  3. You can use the built-in voice effects function on the app to make the audio stand out and make it as unique as possible to attract more views.
  4. Don't forget to post when finished and ensure your profile is not set to a private setting if you want to go viral.

How To Make A Voiceover Sound

If your video is a DIY video, explanatory video, or something else that needs a voiceover such as a 'What I Eat In A Day' or something similar, you will need to follow the instructions below.

  1. Open TikTok and tap on the plus icon to create a new video.
  2. Hold on to the red button to start the recording and hit it again to stop. Choose the red checkmark and you should enter the editing page.
  3. Tap the voiceover icon and you can now make a voiceover of the whole video. If you want to also use the original sound, check this too.
  4. Post your TikTok with the voiceover and watch the views come in!

  2. Hold on to the red button to start the recording and hit it again to stop. Again, choose the red checkmark to enter the editing page.
  3. To make a sound from the in-app library, you need to tap the "Sound" button. This needs to be from either the Recommended list or your Favorites collection. You can save lots of different sounds to your Favorites. 
    Simply find the sound you would like to save and click the circular icon located in the bottom-right corner of the video. Click "Add to Favorites" and tap the flag to the right of the sound to add the sound straight to your favorites.
  4. Press 'Next' and post the video! 

Tips On Making a High-Quality Sound On TikTok

- To make a high-quality sound on TikTok you need to record it using a microphone. You can either:

  • Using an external mic

This is probably the easiest option because you don't have to worry about anything other than getting the microphone. Just plug it into your computer and open the software. It often gives a better sound compared to the microphone built into your phone

  • Using the built-in microphone

This is still another great option if you're filming a video on the go. It requires no extra equipment and allows for a clear, crisp sound in most cases.

  • Using a USB microphone

You can also buy a USB microphone which has its power supply and is designed specifically for recording videos. These microphones are usually very good quality and can be used with most computers.

  • When recording, ensure you record in a quiet place without too many other distracting noises
  • Turn the volume up so viewers can listen to the video in crowded places
  • Make the sound short and sweet, and keep it in a loop to gain even more views
  • Be creative and keep the sound unique
