I want to create voice overs in adobe premiere pro cc.
Only thing is I can't click on the R button (record button) when I've selected my microphone.
The microphone is working on my mac and showing in premiere. But there happens nothing when I click the record button.
I am using a Samson q2u usb microphone. Can anybody help me?
Welcome to the Adobe forums. Try to reset the Prefernces of Premiere pro . When launching Premiere Pro from either a Mac or PC, hold down two keys while launching. This automatically throws away Premiere’s preferences.
For the Mac, press Shift+Option
For the PC, press Shift+Alt
thanks for the reaction.
I tried it but it still won't work. Do you have any other ideas?
Make sure, you don't have marked IN and OUTPOINT!
What do you mean with that?
If you have marked in and outpoint in your sequence, voice over will not work!
I had the same problem and tried this, and it DELETED ALL MY PROJECTS... How do I get them back? (im on mac btw)
Perhaps you have missed a step. If this is too basic, please forgive me, but it is difficult to tell from your post if you have ever recorded to the timeline before.
Is it that nothing happens when you click on the record button (the button does not change) or is it that the recording does not start?
If it is just that the recording does not start, you need to:
1. Enable a track for recording by clicking on the "R button
2. Click on the Record button
3. Click on the Play button
It should start recording.
If the problem is that your microphone is not set up in Premiere Pro, then you may need to go to the Edit, Preferences, Audio Hardware, ASIO Settings, and enable your micrphone as an Input Device.
I never did this before. But I mean the button ''R'' does not change, so I can't select a track when I select this microphone in preferences.
I downloaded also adobe audition and there it works in.
I also tried in premiere making a new sequence with different sample rates, which also didn't work.
Are your ASIO settings showing the microphone selected?
I don't have ASIO settings. I'm working on a mac. here is a picture
For anyone who's ever gonna have the same problem. Got it fixed long time ago but wanted to shared it. I had to make the track I was recording on a mono track.
...thank you! This was exactly the problem that was plaguing me.
Using Premiere CC edition, the solution was:
Everything works great then.
I have the same issue and this isn't working for me.
There are soooo many things to confirm/verify - I wasted an hour on this.
You need all the above (setting up a new audio track as MONO is critical).
In recent Mac OS iterations, you also need to make sure that Premiere has access to your microphone in your Mac System Settings (I'll try to include all steps even if they seem trivial).
Spot on Neuropod - thanks alot for this. It is the security and privacy that has been creating issues for me.
So pleased with your assistance - many thanks
I had teh same roblem where the mic icon was greyed out and unable to click it. The way i solved it was by "Right-Clicking" on any of the audio tracks then selecting "Voice-Over Record Settings". From there I just selected my microphone as a source (which somehow suddenly after a Windows update was set to "None" even though the audio hardware preferences were all set properly and didn't get changed).
I tried all the other suggestions. None worked. This one from StruckTLF did! Thank you.
this worked. thank you
If you are using V8 Sound Card with your Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2020 and you are also experiencing this problem, make sure that the usb connector is connected to your pc. Then go to Edit >> Preferences >> Audio hardware... >> Then choose Microphone (V8) for input, and Speakers (V8) for output. Now the microphone icon for voice over feature is no longer greyed out.
