multi channel audio troubles

Hello all,

I'm in the middle of making the switch from FCP7 to Premiere Pro CC. I have subscribed to the monthly plan, so I have the latest software.

My problem is exporting multiple channels of audio. I've figured out how to assign the tracks and export whatever configuration I need (two stereo, dual mono, etc.) but the problem is playing back the exported movie.

I've got it set up like this: channels 1 and 2 are stereo dialogue, and channels 3 and 4 are stereo music. There are several sections in the project that are MUSIC ONLY. For some reason, when it plays these sections, there is a consistent beeping in the dialogue channels. It's like a metronome. When I bring the exported movie back into Premiere or FCP, you can clearly see the wave spikes for these beeps in the dialogue channel.

This only happens when there is MUSIC ONLY. When it is dialogue only, everything is fine.

Am I doing something wrong? Is this a bug? Has anyone else had this happen?

Any help/advice you can send my way would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Just a little update: it seems these beeps are to the beat of the music. That makes me wonder if one of the dialogue channels is somehow picking up information from the music channels.

And the other funny thing is, these beeps are NOT stereo. They're mono. Sometimes they appear on channel 1, sometimes they appear on channel 2.

We're working on a large television production and seeing the same issue, so are a lot of people. I was aware of the audio pop export problem going into our production, but I didn't expect Adobe to still be radio silent and not have a fix.

Depending on how complicated the edit is, exporting an XML and opening it in CC 2014 is probably your easiest solution.

For our needs, we're exporting an OMF of the audio out for mastering and marrying it to a baked video export (no audio) in CC 2014. Far from ideal but we already have a step we have to take for audio and exporting as OMF took care of the beeps for our audio crew.

Hey Kyle and whoever else-
I was having this same problem just now and haven't seen any solutions on the internet, so thought I should post this.
I found a work-around that works, at least for my purposes. If you change the export audio sample rate from 48k to 44.1k, the audio glitches/repeats should go away. Not a perfect solution, but good enough till the bug is fixed.

Hope that is helpful.
