Vine audio is now a free-for-all to aid remixing craze

Twitter’s short video sharing app Vine has opened up the audio content of all posts, to enable users to create remixes of existing Vines more effectively.

The new tool enables users to grab the audio from another clip on Vine in order to add it to their own new video.

All users need to do to create their own potential viral sensation is to select the “Make an audio remix option” from a video in order to copy the sound.

That’ll take them into the camera with the audio loaded in the progress bar. Users will then be able to shoot or import their own video clip to match.

In a post on the Vine blog, the company Vine uses the example of the famous Duck Army post, which has been used to make remixes like this and this.

iOS Engineer Kristian Bauer wrote: “Remixes, remakes and collaborations are essential parts of the Vine ecosystem, and today we are introducing new features that build on this, allowing everyone to get in on the action. You now have the power to reinterpret, collaborate or remix with audio from any Vine on the network, as well as discover these creations that reveal the bigger picture behind the incredible trends that evolve on Vine.”

The company is also adding a new discovery feature that makes it easier to watch all of the remixes made using that audio content.

The audio-stealing feature will be iOS only for now, while the discovery feature is available on both iOS and Android.
