White Noise (Background Fuzz) Inserted Into Saved Audition Files

I recorded several files in Adobe Audition CS5.5. Then I saved them as both .wav and .mp3 files. However, when I open them again in Audition or play them in another player I now get white noise (background fuzz) that wasn't there in the original recording. How do I fix this? I've recorded and saved many files in Audition before, including just an hour before I started having this problem, without any issues. What could be causing this problem now. Thanks for your help!

    Can't even begin to tell you unless you can post a few seconds of one of them. I do have one question though - if you play back files you recorded earlier, do these make the same noise, or is it just new ones?

    Start by double-checking that you haven't accidentally rendered your file to an 8-bit format.

    Not that I know of, but I guess there's always the risk of a couple of accidental keystrokes (tab, arrowkeys) changing the selected preset. Just one of those things, I guess.


    If it ever happens again, you should probably start paying attention to what actions you perform to provoke it happening, and tell the Audition team about it in a bug report. Intermittent bugs like those can be very hard to track down.
