I don't have any specific videos, but here's a short article explaining what's happening: https://steinberg.help/wavelab_elements/v9.5/en/wavelab/topics/audio_files_editing/zero_crossing_c.html 

The problem is that Premiere operates in frames, not samples, and a frame is much, much longer than a single sample of audio. You can click the hamburger menu of your sequence and enable "Show Audio Time Units" which will allow you to adjust your audio on a more precision level. 

 

But if all you're doin

You should change the name of the video, this is an open forum that minors might use.

I removed your file and re-uploaded it with the one from your fourth post. Please don't create yet another post.

 

Could you please be specific with what your issue is? What do you feel is messed up with this clip? I hear a click in between the two edits which means you didn't create your edit on a zero crossing (feel free to look this up). This is hard to do in Premiere and is more easily done in a dedicated audio editing program like Audition, but aside from the click, the two parts of the audio sound identical. People on these forums are happy to help, but you can't be so vague with what your issue is. As you say, you're new to this, so I'm sure you've already encountered how technical, detailed, and nuanced audio and video production are. Saying you want it "cleaned up" doesn't give us any clues about what you're looking to do. Compared to a lot of bad audio on the internet, this sounds pretty good to me. There isn't much, if any background noise and your levels are balanced. So the only issue I'm hearing is the click, which can be fixed by increasing your edits by a frame or two on either side of the edit so you get a cleaner cut.

But if all you're doing is editing audio and not video, then Audition is a more appropriate program since its toolset is dedicated to audio.
