Poor sound quality in timeline and export; fine in Source?

Hello all.

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.

TIA!

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

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!

I too had the issue but its just simple. just change the sample rate.
step by step
click on sequence in top side
choose sequence settings
in there when you look at the audio side you can see sample rate
click that and max it to the highest hz   🙂

I finally fixed my issue with tinny sound in the sequence timeline by balancing the audio manually.. the channels were mixed evenly in the source media player but once dropped into the timeline they glitched all the way to the -100 Left speaker in the mix? I had to move the toggle on each channel one at a time from L to R until they were balanced in the middle at 0! Such a weird glitch! That finally fixed the tinny muffled sound for me! Good luck!
