When I try to edit my clip with audio from Premiere Pro in After Effects via Adobe Dynamic Link, I always end up getting quieter sound in After Effects for some reason.

My audio file is in stereo, there are no effects applied in Premiere Pro.Снимок экрана (163).png

Without any info about the actual audio levels in the file and waveform screenshots nobody can tell you much. Also check the relevant settings in the AE preferences and preview panel. Simply sounds like you did not master your audio file to an accepted common broadcast level and now it's getting "remastered" based on the settings.

Thank you for your answer. Here are screenshots of my waveform in Premiere Pro and After Effects.

My actual audio levels are close to -3db. The audio was exported from Adobe Audition in stereo, 16 bit.

The audio in AE looks clipped, TBH. And why is the gain in the audio effects so low? It simply seems you are doing soemthing in Premiere and it gets wrongly converted/ translated when opening the file in AE. Start by removing any audio processing and verify that the plain files actually come in identically.

I see what you mean, but I have not done anything to my audio in Premiere Pro. It is literally a plain file.

I was running into the same issue. My main audio track was mastered in Audition then brought into PR. Audio was good in PR, but once the dynamic link happened the audio in AE was MUCH lower. Something i was able to discover was that these settings were automatically applied in AE. So I just removed them, and that seemed to solve the problem.

I was coming on to say just that.  Premiere handles audio differently to After Effects and the volume controls in AE are applied as an effect, rather than to the audio properties, deleting the effect sorts this out.  That's assuming you're rendering out in AE, if you're returning to Premiere Pro, then you can ignore the audio settings.
