♬ La La La – AREA21

This is the first effect that TikTok has made available to each and every one of its users on the platform. Music Visualizer is an effect capable of following the rhythm of the music to animate a background image . You will only need to record yourself on a green background and then apply a chroma and replace it with the animated one.

In the video posted above by area21 you have a clear example of how it works. Although there are already many more videos on the net with this effect.

Music Machine

The second effect that TikTok incorporates to its platform is Music Machine and it will be liked a lot by lovers of synthesizer music. Through various buttons and controls that appear on the screen, this effect allows you to synthesize audio in real time from different drum rhythms among other sounds that it offers while recording.

It may not be easy to use at first, but surely with the passage of time users will get used to it and will achieve very striking videos while doing all kinds of activities, although it could give a lot of use to certain users more focused on viral content about music . We will see what happens.

Delayed Beats

This is the first in a series of effects that will synchronize different elements with the music that is playing. Music that can be any of the TikTok library, which is great because it does not limit you to a specific number and you can choose from the fashionable theme to a classic.

In operation of Delayed Beats it is as simple as taking different photographers of the video you have recorded to freeze them for a certain time and show them one by one. In this way, a very attractive slow motion effect is achieved.

Text Beats

Again Text Beats offers the possibility of synchronizing texts with the rhythm of the music . This time the most interesting thing is that the text is completely edited by the user. That is, you can write what you want and change some related parameters to achieve a much more striking composition and, again, always to the rhythm of the song that is playing.

Solid Beats

Finally, what Solid Beats does is create an animated background as if it were a kind of lava lamp depending on the music you listen to. The application will cut you out, so if you take care of the background so that it is smooth, the result will always be much better, and it will put you above those images.

Mirror Beats

Finally, Mirror Beats is like a game of transitions that simulate certain images that can be mirrored and that are again synchronized with the music. It is striking, although it is still the least surprising of all those that have been presented. Of course, everything will also depend on the content that you want to share using that effect.

Below you have a small video where each of these effects and how they work in TikTok compositions is shown.
