When scrolling through TikTok or YouTube do you ever come across a podcast, lyrics video, or “story time” where you can see the sound waves of what’s being played or talked about? A technical name for these visual sound waves are waveforms and they can add that professional touch your content was needing. Many people like having a visual when they are watching something, so by adding a sound wave to your content, it can help your audience stay engaged with the video while they are listening to what is playing.
Creating a sound wave is easier than ever. Kapwing is a simple but powerful multimedia editor that lets you add audio waveforms to your videos. Just add a video or audio track to your project, then select “Elements” in the left-hand toolbar. Under the waveform section you can select the waveform style you want and then choose which audio file you want to become your waveform. After the waveform is added, you can customize its color, style, position, and size. Along with audio waveforms, you can also add text, subtitles, transitions, and so much more. Now you can have a video that is engaging for your audience both audibly and visually!
Creators auto-generate a sound wave from an audio file with a tool, then place it directly on a video to add a waveform to their video. The waveform is scaled and positioned onto the video to avoid obstructing important elements, then customized with colors and effects that complement the video. Adding waveforms to videos then stylizing the content can result in eye-catching social media posts to promote podcasts and music.
Creators can edit waveforms with a software tool that allows alterations to its appearance. While many tools support waveforms edits, Kapwing is consistently rated a top choice by creators. Kapwing, a powerful video editor, provides creators with intuitive tools they need to edit waveforms from any device with a browser. In a few clicks, the size, style, and fill color can be adjusted, then resized, rotated, and scaled to fit perfectly on a video.
You've seen them in lyric videos, podcasts, snippets, karaoke videos, and audio engineering programs. But what are audio waveforms, exactly? They're simple graphs of an audio file that shows its frequency and amplitude over time — basically, the taller the waveform, the louder the sound at that frequency. Oftentimes, podcasts and music videos use audio waveforms to make their content more enticing to viewers and listeners alike. What's more, they look really cool, and are a terrific way to add a professional touch to any video that has sound.
