Inserting Single Audio File for Adobe Premier Pro Video

I have been working in Adobe Premier Pro for my video project and was having problems with my audio. This was primarily because I am splicing together multiple clips and overlaying music in a few places. Doing this makes timing when different audio files need to enter and exit difficult.

To fix this issue, I edited my audio files in Adobe Audition and saved them as a single .wav file. Then I had to insert the file in Premier and make it the main audio track.

The easiest way to do this was to import the audio track:

Once import is clicked, you have to select which while (in this case, the audio track I just completed in Audition)

Importing the track may take a few seconds. When the process is completed, the audio track will be at bottom of your project file window:

Now drag the audio file from project file window to the “audio 1” section of your video (directly below the “video” sections) so that you screen appears as such (The green file is your audio):

In order to make sure the original audio volume from your videos is not interfering with your projects, be sure to move the yellow lines going across the blue audio sections as low as you can.

At this point, you should be able to save and export your new video with a single, uniform audio track.

  1. I felt that the language in your post definitely serves as your primary means of telling the reader what to do while your images all serve as brief reference points to what you’re trying to say.

  2. Your language is short and to the point which I think is helpful for an instructional post.

  3. Hey! I feel as though your use of language drove this post (though confused me a bit after the “import” step) and that the images served to supplement your work.

  4. Images are simply used to hammer home text directions. The text directions are clear and concise so as not to confuse the reader.

  5. I think the language works well in this one because it explains what the post is about, and provides all of the steps in text without making it too overwhelming.

  6. The language in this is to describe what you are doing, why you are doing it, and how it can be done. The images certainly help clear up any confusion, but the post does not rely on them.
