In fact, I want to tell you that TikTok has removed the function that, until recently, allowed you to upload your own sounds on the platform. This means that, for the moment, you have only two options to be able to achieve your goal: to "borrow" a sound already present on TikTok or create a video with an external app, insert your personalized audio into it. and upload the final result to TikTok.
