Do you need to remove dialogue and replace it with background music or sound effects instead? Or remove audio to maintain your privacy or copyrights? Or get rid of talking, noises, censored content, or other unwanted audio in a video clip? Or just mute an entire video so there’s no audio at all?
No matter why you want to remove audio from video, Kapwing’s all-in-one audio editor suite has you covered. You can mute video, isolate an audio file, add effects, and more.
Instead of deleting the audio layer all together, you can also choose to isolate unwanted audio that distracts from your main goal. Clean Audio lets you remove background noise in one click. Say for example you were recording a video in your living room for your YouTube channel, but someone walked into the front door while you were filming.
With Clean Audio, you can get rid of the door opening and closing noises so that viewers only focus on what you want them to learn. Just like the name promises: in the end, you’re left with sharp, clean audio that helps engage and connect with your audience.
Smart Cut can be an incredibly useful tool for editing pieces like promotional clips, podcasts, and interviews. Plus, you can use it for both audio and video. When you apply the tool, it automatically cuts out silences in between speaking parts. In the end, this saves you hours of tedious editing, leaving you with a value-packed soundtrack or video that gets right to the point.
Upload your video file into the Kapwing studio or paste in the link if it’s already hosted online. Kapwing works with several video file types, including MP4, AVI, MOV, WAV, and more.
Inside the editor, click on the video file. In the right sidebar under the “Edit” tab, find and click on “Detach Audio.” This creates a separate video and audio track. In the timeline at the bottom of the screen, find the audio track and delete it (or turn down the volume in the right sidebar if you don’t want to lose the audio completely).
Click “Export Project” at the top right of your dashboard and download the MP4 video. Or, you can copy the link to your project and share with your colleagues, friends, and family as you like.
Kapwing is the perfect tool for removing sound from your video online. Using our timeline based audio and video tools, creators can adjust the sound levels of a track or any of its subsections.
Get started by uploading the video that you want to silence. Once you mute it, you can do so much with the muted footage–add B-roll footage, create cool transitions as you add in your own audio files, and make montages for all occasions. You can also make hyper-lapse clips, lifestyle inspiration videos, wordless tutorials, fun 5-minute craft videos, stories about animals with fitting background music, and text-based explainer videos. Then, click "Export" to download a video file. As a bonus, you can use the "Audio" tab to add background music to your video clips. This audio remover is perfect any time when you want muted B-roll and music playing in the background. Muted videos can emphasize the action of your video while muffling an unwanted noise or voice. Download the muted MP4 and share with your friends or post on social media.
There are plenty of tools that can help you remove sound from a pre-recorded or saved video, like Kapwing. The process for removing sound will be different depending on which tool you use. In Kapwing, it’s simple: just upload your video file or URL, detach the audio from the video in one click, and delete the new audio layer. You’ll then be able to export your video without any sound, or add new sound as you like. And the best part is, it’s all free.
