audio problems

May 1, 2013 5:00 PM

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.

     

    FAQ: What information should I provide when asking a question on this forum?

    I assume that the AIFF file is 16 bit stereo PCM at 48kHz? And that the audio file when played in premiere is not hitting the top of the audio bargraph?

    the song is in .AIFF format

     

    Try exporting a .wav file out of Audacity instead, which is the standard audio format for Windows.

    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.

    Try this, with the clip in a sequence, R-click the audio file and select audio gain. Choose the "Normalise max peak to" option. You could use 0dB or better to use something in the region of -4dB.

    >Windows 7 64 bit running Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 version 6.0.0

     

    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?
