I have tried recommendations in previous post that go through checking system preferences, making sure premiere pro has access in security seetings, nothing works.
Set up: MacBook Pro running Big Sur version 11.5.1 and it is up to date. Premiere Pro 2021, also up top date.
I have both the system settings and premiere pro setting to use the internal mic. Screen shots showing all the correct settings and that the voice over record setting in the timeline are picking up my voice levels
Here is the timeline, I put bars and tone down, You can see on the right it is showing my voice levels, I can hear myself coming out of the speakers. but when I stop, nothing shows up in the timeline.
And I have restarted the computer.... still no fix.
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces: Reset a workspace Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels. 1. Do one of the following: • Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout. • Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout. from here: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/workspaces.html
If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
I had just moved to new computer so followed your suggestion of starting a new project. However, for the new project I imported and added a video clip to the time line first, then narrated.
The task at hand was to lay down some quick audio and then find some clips to go with it so I could show someone a direction I thought we could go for a project. So I had grabbed bars and tone, then tried to record audio and for some reason that caused the glitch.
But all good now. Apprecite you helping me solve the issue.
