I've been working on a project for a while; I actually started this video in a different editing software and switched to Premiere Pro halfway through, starting completely over. I've noticed this horrible noise in the background of a few of my recorded dialogue audio tracks. It's very noticable. At first I thought something was wrong with my H4n, and the noise was recorded onto the original file; but nope. I opened up the original audio file, and it sounds perfectly clean. I have added a little bit of gain in Premiere, but that couldn't be the cuplrit because I still hear this noise without the gain. On top of that, the editing software I used in the first place didn't appear to have the noise either. From what I can tell, Premiere Pro has to be the source of this aweful noise... I have no effects or anything added to thesee tracks; yet it continues to haunt my ears. Any ideas what this could be? Perhaps there's something I'm not seeing... ?
I find it hard to believe such a fatal issue could exist in a piece of renowned $800 software, but nothing else plays back this nasty sound. Please help!
Thanks for the quick reply. I went ahead and tried that, no success. Although I did notice that I can only hear the noise on the timeline. When I play the exact same file in the source monitor, it sounds fine. Any other ideas? I might be able to render a short clip so I can attach it and you can hear this stuff.
Good news. As far as I can tell, the problem is fixed! I moved the affected clips into a new sequence created from the original audio file, and the noise dissappeared. I guess since I made the old sequence from the video, it had something incorrect for the audio presets which caused that noise. Thanks again for your help.
