Using Adobe Premiere Pro to Smooth Out Crackling Audio
by Tim on Jun 13, 2004 at 6:08:16 pm
I have a segment of audio-dialogue that sort of crackles and pops because the person
speaking into the Mic was too close, or too loud. How do I use Adobe Premiere
Pro to smooth out the audio, so that you can barely hear the cracks/pops, yet at the
same time, keeping the gain to be the same? There are a myriad of Audio Features under
the "Audio Effects", and I'm afraid I'll probably need assistance from an Audio Expert
or someone versed with Premiere Pro. Thanks alot for all your time and effort!

You might be asking a lot , first if it is a simple pop or crack, turn your time line to audio not video frames. this will get you to 1/90000 second increments. you can then razor and cut out the pop. If there is dialouge with it you might have a challenge. Adobe' Audition is more set for audio sweeting. It has a variety of adjustable settings.
We learn from our shoots, have a good microphone and monitor with good earphones. My old audio professor kept preaching, " your audio is only good as the chain's weakest link, garbage in = garbage out".

Do you have any audio editing software, such as Sound Forge or Cool Edit Pro? If so, you can put the clip with the bad audio on the timeline, and then export the audio to a .wav file. Your audio software may have better tools for removing pops and crackles. Then you can import the .wav file into your project and use it rather than the video clips' sound.
