I wanted to record a voiceover to an edited piece - it's not important the quality of my voiceover, so I planned to record using the onboard microphone on my Macbook Pro (OS10.6.6, 2.66 GHz Interl Core i7, 8GB RAM).
If I go into Preferences > Audio Hardware and select Built-In Input it crashes Premiere Pro. I've submitted a crash report - but wonder if anyone has encountered anything similar or might know what I might do to avoid this or what might be causing the problem. I know that I have recorded voiceover before using the onboard microphone so this seems strange. (I've checked and the same problem occurs in After Effects - and it happens anytime I select one of the options that includes my onboard input. I am able to use my built-in microphone with other applications such as quicktime and camtasia, and no problems).
Has anyone encountered this problem or have any ideas how to fix it? I've seen several other people complain about the same or similar issues on other forums but can't find any solutions. I ended up needing to export my video from Premiere Pro and then add the voiceover in iMovie, and I really would have preferred to remain in PP. I'm confident it's not a hardware issue, so wonder whether anyone has any ideas about how to fix it...?
