ByteDance’s popular short video app TikTok has just unveiled the first creative music effects that will debut in the new Music tab of the creative effects panel.

The first of these creative effects is Music VisualizerNow available to all users globally, it tracks the beat in real time to animate an out-of-this-world retro greenscreen landscape, moving directly to the beat of the chosen song.
TikTok says that electronic music do AREA21 has already used this effect for their first video on TikTok La La La, although there are currently around 28,000 videos created with this creative music effect.
More creative music effects will be arriving over the next few weeks, such as Music Machine, which offers real-time audio synthesis functions, launching a set of interactive on-screen music tools during recording for the creation of musical mixes based on drum beats and other sounds.
Delayed Beats synchronize a series of still images generating transitions from one to another to the rhythm of the music, displaying them as frozen frames. Text Beats allow adding animated text overlays that will sync to the beats of any song chosen from the app’s library.
Solid Beats add synced visuals with real-time tracking. And lastly, Mirror Beats It is like entering a high-tech mirror house, generating screen transitions that will be synchronized with the selected song from the application’s sound library.
