So you don't need to go and record something and see if it sounds the way you want after you record it and then go and upload it to your TikTok. You can use the app to record your videos and post them online and sound like an auto-tune maven. Jacob Richman breaks it all down in his video on how he went "VIRAL For Sounding Like Travis Scott" and his breakdown of how to do everything starts at 2:52. You know, so you can get straight to the good stuff.

He stresses the importance of having wired headphones with a microphone attached to your phone for this little experiment, and if you've got an iPhone they should come with a pair of lightning-cable headphones. If you don't have those, make sure you pick up a pair because apparently this little trick won't work with AirPods.
