You can add audio to a Clipchamp in a few different ways. Available options are:

  • Drag and dropping audio files from your device

  • Import audio using the import media button 

  • Create an AI voiceover using text to speech

  • Create an audio and voice recording using the audio recorder 

  • Add stock music from the content library 

Adding audio files from your computer

Option 1. Drag and drop audio files into the your media tab

Drag and drop your audio files from your device into the importing tab. This works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Add a stock audio file

If you don't want to use your own audio, or create an AI voiceover, take a look at the royalty-free stock music library. Easily add stock audio to your video for free. Just click on the content library tab on the toolbar, then explore the audio tab.

Create an audio and voice recording using the audio recorder 

To record audio directly in Clipchamp, go to the record & create tab on the toolbar, then click:

  • Clipchamp for personal accounts, select the audio button. This will let you record a voiceover that will get added as an MP3 file to your timeline.

  • Clipchamp for work, select the webcam button. Inside the webcam recorder, you can switch to audio-only recording.

How to add audio to the timeline

After a new audio file appears in the your media tab on the timeline, you can drag and drop it into the timeline below your video to start editing. You can move, split or trim the audio track and perform additional editing operations.
