How to make a sound on TikTok

TikTok is one of the biggest social networking services on the market. Trends that are created on TikTok surpass the boundaries of the internet, appearing on and being adapted to dozens of other social media sites.

One of the biggest things the app has going for it is TikTok’s ability to create, and popularize, sounds. The audio born on TikTok is often used across the internet, populating thousands of videos and sometimes prompting trends. The process behind creating your own sound on TikTok is pretty easy, and requires only a few quick steps. 

How to make a TikTok sound

Obviously, your first step is going to take you into the TikTok app. To create a new video, just click on the plus sign (+) near the bottom of the screen. From there, you’ll have the option to add any filters or effects. Hit the red button to record, and — once you’re finished — you can save the new video using the red check mark on your screen’s bottom right.

The audio from that video can now be made into a custom sound. Fiddle with the options to try out audio effects, like slo-mo or warp, until you’ve created your ideal sound. From there, you just need to hit “next,” which will take you to the posting page.

To share your new creation, just hit Post and give TikTok a moment to process and post the video. Once it’s up, select the video and track down the spinning record on your screen’s lower right side. Then you just need to add it to your favorites, which will allow you to access the audio later on, according to Business Insider

Just like that, you’ve created your very own TikTok sound!
