What is an audiogram/waveform?

You’ve seen them in lyric videos, podcasts snippets, karaoke videos, and audio engineering programs. But what are audiograms, exactly? They’re simple graphs of an audio file that shows its frequency and amplitude over time – basically, the taller the waveform, the louder the sound at that frequency. What’s more, they look really cool, and are a terrific way to add a professional touch to any video that has sound.

The Kapwing Studio is a simple but powerful multimedia editor that lets you add audio waveforms to your videos. Just add a video or audio track to your project, select Elements in the upper toolbar, and click Add a waveform. Now you can edit your audiogram’s color, style, position, and size before you download it or share it on social media.

Audiogram example

Your Sound, Your Style

Make your wave your way by adjusting your audiogram’s color, position, and speed. Plus, you can choose between a classic waveform style and a stacked “bars” style to bring your own touch to your project.

Share Anywhere

Show your waveform videos anywhere on social media directly from Kapwing. Audiograms draw attention to what you’re saying, so your friends & followers can stop scrolling and listen.
