So I am making a music video and so when I play the song I am using in a media player it sounds fine. however when i import it into premiere the audio quality is very bad and seems to crackle. even after rendering out the project with the highest audio settings it still sounds very bad. I have no idea why. any ideas? thanks.
Details regarding format and origin of your audio file?
Your version of Premiere, and your operating system?
JohnDoe and joe bloe... I think we're 2nd cousins.
haha nice to meet you cousin. ok the song is in .AIFF format (as for origin, it is a song I made/recorded and was exported from audacity) and I am currently on Windows 7 64 bit running Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 version 6.0.0
I just tried using .wav and also a .mp3 version of the song. it still sounds bad and is maxing out the audio bargraph. any idea what causes it to max out the audio mixer graph when it plays normally in like VLC so it's not that it is a very loud song I don't think.
I'm not really sure what to say, it's obviously not the song because I've tried with other songs and the quality is still lacking. Could it be an audio driver or something? I'm currently using the premiere pro WDM sound. I mean I haven't had audio problems in the past, don't know why it has just started messing up.
any idea what causes it to max out the audio mixer
There is only one thing which can do that - the levels are too high, either in the actual file, or because of an effect, or gain, or a Mixer adjustment.

Is there some particular reason you have not installed the bug fixes?
PPro CS6 for Windows is up to 6.0.3
All Adobe updates start here and select product, read to see if you need to install updates in number order, or if the updates are cumulative for the individual product http://www.adobe.com/downloads/updates/
when I listen to the sound in the audio trimmer preview (double click open) it sounds normal, but in the project itself sound disgusting.
That preview is called the Source Monitor. Normally it comes into the project before it goes into the Source Monitor, however with CS6 that may not always be the case. So do you actually mean to say that when adding it to the project it sounds bad, or when adding it to a sequence it sounds bad?
