A Sound Designer’s Dream

Scoring your video is just as important as getting the right cuts. KineMaster comes with some amazing tools built in to make creating rich audio experiences easy. 

You can bring audio tracks into your KineMaster video project from a variety of sources. 

• Video clips, which often have their own audio.

• Copyright-free music and sound effects from the KineMaster Asset Store.

• Audio files from Internet audio providers.

• Create your own audio tracks in KineMaster or another app and import them.

On iOS devices, audio shared from other apps will be available (once you share it to KineMaster) in the Internal folder. On Android, just browse to the folder where you have saved your audio files. If you’re not sure if an app can share audio (Spotify, for example, doesn’t allow this), please contact them to find out. 

To add an audio track to your project, tap the Audio button on the right side of the Media Wheel. The Audio Browser will open and give you different folder locations where your audio files can be accessed. Locate your audio file and tap the Plus button to add it to the Timeline. KineMaster doesn’t limit the number of audio tracks you can stack up, which makes it easy to layer up rich, complex sound environments.

You can also add audio to your KineMaster project directly while editing. This is particularly useful for voiceovers. To use the Voiceover tool, tap the REC/Voice button at the bottom of the Media Wheel.

Before you begin recording, test your audio peaking first. If the audio meter is hitting red, your audio recording is going to be too loud. You should look at the audio meter before you start recording to check for background noise, as well. If the meter is at one or two bars, it’s likely quiet enough to get a high-quality recording.

KineMaster does not currently have noise-reduction tools. Ensuring a quiet recording space is the best way to prevent that problem before it comes up. 

Once you’ve imported or recorded an audio track into KineMaster, tap on the audio track to open the Options Panel. All of these audio tools will be available:

Mixer 

EQ 

Volume Envelope 

Reverb 

Voice Changer 

Ducking 

Loop 

Trim/ Split 

Audio Settings 

Click on any of the tools to learn more about what they do and how to use them.

Troubleshooting Audio

If you download an audio file from the Internet, it may not be accessible in KineMaster. There are two likely reasons why your file can’t be found: It’s saved in the wrong format or it’s protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management).

KineMaster lets you import audio files saved in .mp3, .m4a, .aac, and .wav formats. If you have audio files saved in other formats, you will need to convert them to one of these four file types before importing them into KineMaster.

KineMaster does not allow you to use audio files protected by DRM. If a song you’ve downloaded from a music app or service doesn’t appear in KineMaster, it’s likely for this reason.
