How to Add Two Songs to a TikTok Video
TikTok has become so popular lately that it takes a lot of creativity to stay ahead of the pack. Making videos with multiple songs is a great way to set yourself apart from the other content creators out there.
In this article, we’ll show you how you can add two or more songs to your TikTok video to make more interesting and engaging clips.
Getting the Songs Ready
The first thing you’ll need to do is to find the songs you want to add to your TikTok video. Then, you’ll need to record them. Most mobile devices should have a screen record function that can do the job. The newer iOS devices have a screen recorder under the Control Center, and most Android phones come with screen recording apps as well. If your phone doesn’t come with this function, you can install a screen recording app for your phone. Alternatively, you can use a PC to grab those videos for you.
Keep in mind that TikTok videos have a limit of either 15 or 60 seconds, so capture the song lengths appropriately.
Once you have a screen recorder ready, open a video of a song either on YouTube, or another video streaming site. Save those captures on your phone or transfer them to a PC for editing.
Putting the Songs Together
TikTok itself has very limited video editing tools. If you wish to add two or more songs to a video, you’ll have to edit them together using a third-party application. There are plenty of these available, either for a phone or even a PC. What’s needed is that the app you’re using is able to splice videos together so that you can make a continuous clip with more than one song.
Using a mobile app has the advantage of eliminating the need to transfer the video from your computer to your phone. The advantage of a PC is that it has better editing tools available. Pick and choose what you want. What matters most is that the app you’re using can cut and paste clips together.
If you’re on Android, you can try VidTrim, or Easy Video Cutter, which are highly rated on the Google Play Store. If you’re on the iOS, maybe try giving InShot a try. Both Windows 10 and the Mac already come with the Video Editor App and the Apple iMovie respectively. If you have a preferred video editor though, feel free to use that.
Combining Everything on TikTok
Once you’re done making a continuous clip with more than one song, you can now use it as the background for a new TikTok video. To do so, follow these steps:
- If you’re using a PC editor, make sure that the clip you’ve combined the songs in is saved to your mobile device.
- Open TikTok and tap the + icon on the lower part of the screen.
- Tap on Upload to the right of the Record button.
- Choose the clip that you combined your songs in.
- Tap on Next. Here you can check if the clip you’ve edited has been loaded correctly. Once you’re sure, tap on Next again.
- You’re only going to be using the audio of this clip so it might be a good idea to keep this clip private. To do that, tap on Who can view this video, then tap on Private.
- Tap on Post.
- Go back to your Profile by tapping on the Me icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
- If you made the video private, tap on the padlock icon to see your private videos, otherwise, it’ll be on the album. Tap on the uploaded video.
- When the video plays, you’ll see a spinning icon in the lower right of the screen. Tap on it.
- Tap on Add to Favorites, then tap on OK. The audio clip is now saved for you to use on a new TikTok video.
- Make a TikTok Video. Use the + button on the screen below to bring up the recording screen. Tap Record, then tap on the checkmark when you’re done.
- Tap on the Sounds icon on the bottom left corner of your screen.
- Tap on the Favorites tab.
- Tap on your video clip that has the multiple songs that you want to use.
- Tap on the Checkmark.
- If you want to further edit the clip, tap on the down arrow on the right hand menu to see the available options. You can adjust the volume, trim both the sound and video, add voice effect, or add filters.
- Once you’re done, tap on Next. Then select the posting options. Tap on Post to upload the video. Your multi-song TikTok clip is now available for all to see.
