PP - brings in audio too hot?
on Apr 23, 2020 at 5:15:03 pm

This happens a lot: i import an mp3 or other sound file, and it "pegs the meters" on my timeline. You can see the waveform just slightly crushed at the top, though it doesn't sound distorted...it's sometimes close. Is there a way to bring it in a bit "softer" so the highs aren't crushed (at least, visually?)

thanks for helping out a bonehead!

You can always open it in Audition first and get it the way you want it.

Alternatively, create some FX presets you can access in PPro that will help manage it.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2017.1 (as of 8/2017)

4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from UHD MP4, HD MP4, and HD P2 MXF.

Tad, it depends upon the source, but I have seen that too. Generally that audio has been [1] heavily compressed (leveling out the tops of the waveform, eliminating dynamics) and [2] normalized ("stretching" the entire waveform relative to loudest peaks, which were lost during compression, often to 0dBFS or maybe -1 dBFS.)

Pull a contemporary music track from YouTube and you'll often see this. Tracks treated like this are a "wall of sound".
