Newbie to Pr but experienced pro in digital audio. I'm stumped and know I'm just missing something somewhere.
I've made a music video for one of my songs. The graphics are all done (in AE), imported to Pr and eveything looks great. I import the final mix of the audio and it sounds very low quality when played from the timeline and in the final output, regardless of format (I've tried several presets and custom settings as well). I played around and noticed that the audio sounds fine when played from the Source window inside Premier.
The Pr session is comrised of 18 video tracks (not all playing at once, of course) and one stereo audio track.
I've tried re-exporting the audio from Logic at different bit depths, sample rates and file formats (mp3, wav, AAC, etc) but the results are the same every time: Source (Pr)sounds fine, Logic output sounds fine, rendered / timeline playback sounds like very low quality mp3 and final product sounds just as bad.
I've tried everything I can think of. I hope one of you can show me what I'm missing.
Premier Pro CC
Processor 2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Memory 8 GB 800 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256 MB
Software OS X 10.9.1 (13B42)
WHat are the audio export settings that accompany the video preset you chose or made.?
What are your Project Sequence Settings?
Thank you for the reply!
I was experiencing the same results no matter what export settings I used. Plus the poor sound quality was present in the timeline itself, without even exporting the project.
I finally threw my hands up, started a completely new project, drug the same audio file in... sounded fine. Copied / Pasted the video clips from the original, broken project and boom, eveything is fixed. Yeah, corrupted Pr file it turns out. All I had to do was start a new project and import all the old components.
I've had to do this in Logic a lot (increasingly, these days). I just wish I'd tried it 10 hours earlier! Ha.
Anyway, problem solved, and thanks very much!
Hello guys, had this bad audio in my headphones all the time.. Figured out how to do it :
Go to Premiere Pro CC > Preferences > Audio Hardware in Mac (should be similar in windows).
Use the following settings :
Default input : Built-in microphone
Default output : (can be anything)
Master clock : (can be anything)
I/O buffer size : 512 and above (512 should be default)
Sample Rate : 44100 HZ (must be)
and bam! The audio works neat now..
Yeah, thats what i assumed it was, but premiere wont let me push it beyond 16000hz. I've also tried changing the device playback within mac midi editor, which also wouldnt let me change it to 44,100. Once premiere is closed, the issue is not evident and deals directly with premiere. Do you know of a work around?
You're such a Champ!
OMG! Perfectly worked, thanks dude:hundred_points:

I think i found better solution for that. I had the same problem and after 3h of traying to do sth i found that my audio sequence settings (right click on sequence > audio is second segment) don't much to audio settings. I change Sample Rate in sequence settings to much witch my audio track and it helps. Greetings from Poland!
You saved my life.

Oh. My. Frigging.
You are a lifesaver. Too bad I also used about 20 hrs of wasted time trying to edit s*tty audio in Premiere Pro. In the ened I re-recorded some of the audio and did all the editing from scratch in Audition and it still sounded really poor in Premiere Pro. This really helped, the sample rate in sequence was 32 kHz...

Thank you so much! I was loosing my mind over this one. Greetings from Montana!
Where is that audio sequence setting, on your computer or on Adobe premiere reference?
Right click at your sequence in Project browser panel, then you'll see Sequence Setting
Thank you, it worked!
YES! this is the correct answer and it takes only 2 clicks to solve!!! thank you thank you thank you!!!
Still trying to solve that issue. At windows player sound is perfect in premiere it crushes at high notes.
I checked sample rate. It is 64kb/s.
Can someone help me? I tried to change sample rate at premiere it didnt work.
I also tried it at another software. Same problem...
Ok so here what I just figured out. I'm using Dell monitors and display cables not HDMI or VGA and my speakers were plugged in the back of the computer as usual. I had to plug my speakers into the port in back of 1 of my monitors and the disable all other audio sources. And BAM audio problem solved. I'll post this in some of the other threads, so maybe it will help others with this issue. Omg I'm so happy right now!
I solve the problem by recording the voice file with some screenrecording program...
I will try that, because files keep coming.
I'm replying here after all these years because most answers are about sample rates and technical hoo-haa, when (in may case at least) it seems like Premiere is putting a some sort of weird MONO mix-down track track in the A1 slot by default ... sometimes... not all the time. Not sure why.
So, if there's a mono'sih mix in track A1? Well, audio on that track is going to sound bad compared to listening to it in the source monitor.
Why does it do this? How can you fix track A1? I have no idea.
All I do is create new audio tracks below A1, move my audio stuff there --and it then it works for me.
