I'm encountering a problem it seems several others have faced, but the solutions that were recommended don't seem to help me.
I had imported a wav file into Audition to edit. Once my edits were complete, I exported the mix down file and then imported it into my Premiere video project. The audio sounds very "tinny" and there's a high-pitched ringing. Figured it was my export settings. Tried again, same result. After several failed attempts, I tried opening the file in After Effects, the audio sounds as it did in Audition with my edits. Same thing when I play the audio using iTunes. So then I tried clicking on the audio file in Premiere and selected "Replace with Audition Comp" and low and behold the ringing and tinniness are gone. But as soon as I go back to Premiere, it sounds like garbage again. My co-worker tried importing the same audio file into their Premiere project, no issue, it sounds as it should. I've been looking through the forums and found that the issue most people have had was solved by adjusting their Audio Hardware settings for their Default Input and Output. My input is set to built-in microphone and the output is set to built-in output, which is what was recommended. For the hell of it, I tried messing around with the other options, and it only muted the audio entirely, or gave me the same results.
I've tried re-booting the program. I've tried re-booting my computer. I've been at this for hours trying to figure out a work around. I tried replacing with an Audition comp, I tried replacing with an After Effects composition. No matter what, the audio sounds fine until I bring it back into Premiere. I haven't had an issue like this before, and I'm at a loss as to what to do next.
Try resetting the preferences:
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.
- Do one of the following:
- Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
- Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
Neither of these fixes seemed to do anything. I tried exporting my entire project to an mp4 just to see if the distortion occurs after exporting, and the audio is fine, no weird ringing. So at this point I'm just going to ignore the distortion in the project file and know that it will sound fine once exported. The rest of my audio in the project file is working, it's just this one particular clip that was imported into the project after everything else.
I understand that your post is YEARS old, but I'm having this same issue and wondered if you ever found a solution.
I'm having the same issue. I purchased a song from envato and it sound great.... Until I import it to premier pro. I've tried everything. I don't know what to do
What is your audio hardware set for as far as input and output defaults? Often,. setting input default to "none" fixes PrPro audio issues.
