How to: convert audio into Twitter video using Voice Record Pro 7

A conversation on Anchor recently threw up this useful tip from Christian Payne (aka Documentally) – which I’ve also converted into the video above. Voice Record Pro is a free mobile phone app with some impressive features, particularly around exporting audio. One way that can be used is to quickly convert audio recorded on your phone into Twitter-savvy short videos.

This is the process which Christian outlines in step-by-step format:

  1. Record and edit your (short) audio using the app.
  2. Tap the photo box (camera icon, upper left in the image shown here) next to your audio to add an image.
  3. It’s a good idea to give it a meaningful name as well (tap on the file name under the file size details at the top), as this can be used in the image you end up with.
  4. Choose the Save in Photo Album option. You can then choose from various templates which include the file name and date etc.
  5. The resulting file is an MP4: essentially a video where your audio plays against a still image. You can now upload this to social media from your phone – providing it’s under 30 seconds of course.
  6. The results can be seen in Documentally’s tweet below.

Do you have any other tips for getting audio on social media? Let me know in the comments or @paulbradshaw
