    Narration

      When I am narrating in Premiere Elements, my voice comes out garbled like it is repeating or ecohing. When I use Windows sound recorder the voice is ok. I must have a setting incorrect but I cant seem to correct it. Any help would be appreciated.

      Thank You

          What happens if you turn down your speakers when you record your narration?

          It sounds like you're getting delayed feedback.

            grisetti,
            I have tried that and the result is the same. As I mentioned, when I use Windows sound recorder, the sound comes out fine so I am assuming that the problem is with Premiere.

              First, make sure your audio card's firmware and RealTek drivers are up to date. This is very important!

              Second, if the problem persists, go to Premiere Elements Edit/Preferences/Audio Hardware, click the ASIO settings button and make sure everything is set up correctly.

                grisetti,

                I think that my drivers are up to date. I went into ASIO and had no idea if things are set up correctly. I have experimented some and possibly messed things up worse than they were. Is there a way to default the program to all of its original settings? If not, would a re install be the way to go? Would I lose any of my presentations by doing that. As you can tell, I am not a computer guru. Need some advice.

                Thanks again

                  The instructions are on the Record Voice Narration dialog that pops up after you click "Add Narration." It says to lower input level
                  volume slider. The slider is not a record level slider, it is a volume slider. Slide the slider all the way down.
