To add music or sound effects to your Clipchamp video, you can either use the Add Media plus button or drag and drop the file from your computer into the Your Media tab.
If you would like to add audio from the stock library instead, please see: Adding stock music and audio.
Clipchamp currently does not support recording of audio only using your computer's microphone however, we are working on adding this feature.
NOTE: You can also add computer-generated voiceovers to your projects using our text-to-speech voiceover feature.
How to add an audio file from your computer
You can add audio to your project from your computer in two different ways:
Option 1. Drag and drop the file into the Your Media tab
Option 2. Click the Plus icon to add your media
Click the "+" (plus/add) icon.
Then click Browse my files, or your online storage like Google Drive or Zoom, and choose a file from your computer.
Click Open. The audio file will now appear in your media library. To start working with the file, add it to the timeline (see below).
How to add audio to the timeline
Once the new audio file appears in the Your media tab drag and drop it into the timeline below your video track.
A new audio track will appear with the file in it.
How to trim or split audio to fit
For example, in the below example we've zoomed out, moved the white cursor where the video ends, clicked on the audio clip (so it's highlighted), and then clicked split (the scissor icon in the top left).
Then we clicked on the remaining part of the audio and hit the delete key to delete it.
Now, the audio will only play until the end of the video.
