Is there any way to change the playback volume levels independently in Premiere Pro--I don't mean changing levels in clips or mixing--I mean simply a basic volume control contained within the application. as for example you would have on VLC media player?
Right now, I am listening to Lynda.com tutorials, and if I get the volume comfortable on Lynda, I find the playback in PP very loud. If I lower my system volume to a comfortable level for Premiere Pro, I will have to have the independent Lynda volume to max, and it is still very soft. No amount of jjigging around seems to make both comfortable.
Is there a feature I don't know about?
Thank you for your thoughts.
Have a lot better understanding of what's happening in your setup. Still ... at my workstation ... I don't get the huge difference in output over the system from the stuff on the project at say -6dB average and any other file I plop on the system. Including multi-engine prop aircraft like B-17, B-24 bombers, and P-51 and other non-muffled planes. It was so loud as it was being recorded you could barely be heard by someone next to you who was shouting.
And I can plop those on a sequence without blowing my ears out. Wondering what the differences are?
Turning down the master volme in the track mixer doesn't work?
Hi there, I followed this tutorial from Reddit for a different issue but it also fixed my audio on Premiere Pro! This was specific to my Airpods so I am not sure if it would be applicable for other earphones. Basically, go Edit\Preferences\Audio Hardware, then remove ”xxxx Airpods Hands-Free” from the output devices. https://www.reddit.com/r/airpods/comments/at82dz/solution_to_windows_10_airpods_audio_cutting_out/
Still having this issue, really insane to me. Is there a better program to do all of my audio in? Really hate getting blasted with music in the preview window because I forgot to turn it down, then up, then down, then up.
Theses forums are absolutley trash when it comes to finding the specific answers you're looking for.
What you can do in Windows is right-click your volume icon wuthin the system tray, and then click on: Open Audio Mixer. Using that, you can adjust Windows output volumes for each open program separately.
Can't even edit on these forums... Anyway, I would also suggest doing a text export that includes a small amount of audio -- it could have been your camera or microphone recording levels that were through the roof when you created that audio. If it happens with stock stuff too, then maybe try the audio mixer.
Thanks for the reply. The problem wasn't in the windows mixer because it was in the varying audio levels within one program, Premiere itself. But yes, your second reply was the problem. Being in a manufacturing environment, the audio is clipping bad in the onboard mics we use in cellphones and DSLRs. We only use the footage audio sometimes to hear what is being said and we NEVER use it in the videos. I've learned to live with it but I just wish lowering the audio while previewing clips was a thing but it seems it's not a common problem. There's a large difference in my edited video track and the clips being previewed.
Ahhh... Sorry. I got a notification and thought you replied directly to me but you were answering the OP. Sorry!
Just to add my 2 cents worth to OP's issue, I use a program on Mac called Sound Control and it allows you to mix the level output of every application that is open. I can completely mute Premiere and listen to youtube / music while I edit. It's great. Doesn't solve the other issue I had but it solved the same OP issue I had.
This is another absolutely basic function that I'm stunned is not available in Adobe Premiere Pro for the price we pay, when it is in the free version of Da Vinci Resolve.
