If I'm understanding you correctly, you need to repitch/tune something. AFAIK PPro doesn't have a native pitch plug in. Audition can repitch (manually for better results, depends on the material you need to repitch) or via its pitch plug in. Manual repitching in Au though has a learning curve. Adobe Premiere has a new feature called Morph Cut that lets you do. Auto-Key is a brand new plug-in, included with your Auto-Tune Pro purchase, which automatically detects the key and scale of your music and sends that information to one or more instances of Auto-Tune Pro. Please don’t do that. Autotune is terrible. It’s often abused. It was a nice effect in that Cher hit, but I’m in a collector’s group of over a thousand, and we all hate autotune and make fun of it. Now you know how to use Adobe Premiere Pro to record your voice-over narration. You’ve got some tips to improve your recording space and enhance your audio in post-production. This should make a difference in your next video project that you can really hear! In this video, I'll be showing you how to AutoTune your vocal in adobe audition.

Discover a quick way to adjust your audio levels in Premiere Pro with Automation Modes!

Want to create audio keyframes in Premiere Pro on the fly? In this tutorial, we show you how to take advantage of the Automation Modes in Premiere Pro — the quickest way to set audio levels in your video editing project. Let’s start by taking a closer look at the Premiere Pro Audio Mixer Panel.

Automation Modes in the Audio Mixer Panel

Autotune Adobe Premiere

Read — The default setting for every audio channel, Read simply reads whatever audio level animation there is on the channel. Because you start without any animation, this means the fader stays at 0 until you change it. While using Read, you can change the value and the fader will stay where you put it — but no animation will be made. You are simply setting a value, not changing it over time.

Off — Simply turns the fader behavior back to the same as Read before any animation has been added. In other words, Off will ignore all audio animation on that track and just look at whatever value you’ve set the fader to.

Write —Perhaps the most fragile of all the automation modes, in that wherever you’ve put the fader and wherever you move the fader once playback has commenced, will be recorded and will overwrite any animation that may have been there before.

The big issue with Write is that recording starts as soon as you hit the spacebar — and that recording will write overwhatever has gone before. Because of this, there is a default behavior in that once you hit the spacebar again to stop recording, the automation mode will change from Write to Touch,as this is a non-destruction automation mode. It won’t write over any previous animation until you make a change.

You can change this default behavior if you want by unchecking it in the Audio Mixer Panel’s panel menu as shown below. However, I wouldn’t advise turning it off until you are used to using these modes. It is meant as a safeguard. Personally, I like the default behavior and would only turn it off for specialized audio work and not for general projects.

We’ll cover Touch and Latch later.

Switch to Touch After Write Option in the Panel Menu

When you make any changes using an automation mode, you’ll be adding keyframes to the track. However, the default behavior of Premiere Pro is to show Clip keyframes rather than Track keyframes. So if you want to see the keyframes you’re creating when you animate with automation modes (or when you animate track audio in the timeline), you will need to select the option in the track header as shown below.

Touch is perhaps my favorite automation mode, in that it has a built-in option that automatically returns it to its start value when you let go of the fader. It works like this…

Before selecting Touch, it is also best to set the starting point for your fader (as this will be the value the fader will automatically return to). Then, when you hit the spacebar and move the fader, the fader will move to whatever value you take it to. Once you let go, the fader will automatically drift back to that starting value over a predetermined amount of time.

We can set this amount of time in our preferences by changing the Automatch Time to a different value in seconds. This is found at the top of the Audio tab in your preferences.

Depending on your production, one second may be too fast or too slow, so having this extra control is very valuable for editors. Latch is very similar to Touch in that it always returns to the starting value you give it — but only when you stop and then start again.

Keyframe Optimization in Premiere Pro

There is one more somewhat hidden option for Automation Modes in the Audio section of your preferences. This is the Automation Keyframe Optimization.

Automation Keyframe Optimization is a way to control the number of keyframes that are created when you animate the faders. For me, the default behavior is usually fine, but sometimes (especially on older machines) lots of keyframes can cause some problems.

As you can see from the greyed out box above, the default minimum time between keyframes is 20 milliseconds, creating a typical animation curve in the timeline something like the following…

/clash-of-clans-hack-tool-new-version/. It is unlikely that you would need to create keyframes even closer than this, but, of course, it is always possible. Thus, this option is most often used to create less keyframes which would mean increasing the value from 20 milliseconds. For example, here is what the timeline would look like if I changed that value up to 200 milliseconds.

Like all things, these modes will take some practice. At first you will move the fader too much or too little and need to try again. So, keep at it and enjoy using these powerful Automation Modes in Premiere Pro.

Need to get good audio fast? Just follow these quick steps in Premiere Pro and Audition.

A video is only as strong as the audio supporting it. But if you’re in a pinch, you may not have the time to perfectly finesse your audio. Let’s take a look at how to quickly fix your audio in Premiere Pro — with a little help from Adobe Audition.

1. Send to Audition


No matter your individual circumstances, if you have unneeded background noise in your audio, the best tool to clean it up is the Noise Print feature in Adobe Audition.

Luckily for you, if you’re editing with Premiere Pro, you should have Audition already installed on your computer. To send an audio clip to Audition, simply right click on the track and select Edit Clip in Adobe Audition.

2. Capture Noise Print

The first thing you need to do before you apply the Noise Print effect is capture your background noise without the vocal parts. You can do this by selecting a voiceless area in your track with the Time Selection Tool. Play your track to make sure you’ve selected only background noise and no voice.

Now it’s time to capture the background noise. To do so, simply navigate to Effects>Noise Reduction>Capture Noise Print or hit Shift+P. Your background noise is now saved into Audition.

3. Apply Noise Print

Autotune Adobe Premiere Pro

After you’ve captured the Noise Print, it’s time to take the noise print out of your original audio clip. First you will need to deselect your noise print area. To do this, click anywhere in your timeline with the Time Selection Tool selected. Now navigate to Effects>Noise Reduction>Noise Reduction. A window will pop up that looks like this:

You’ll see two important effects:

  • Noise Reduction — the amount of noise that will be reduced.
  • Reduce By — the number of decibels that the noise will be reduced.

The best way to ensure that your audio will sound the best is to adjust each parameter by hand. But if you’re in a hurry, just set Noise Reduction to 50% and Reduce By to 15db. After you’ve set your noise print levels select Apply.

4. Send to Premiere

Now it’s time to go back to Premiere, but first you will need to save your audio out of Audition. Simply hit Command+S and your audio will be automatically saved and replaced in your Premiere Pro timeline.

5. Vocal Enhancer

Now that you’ve taken out most of your background noise, it’s time to enhance the vocals. Grab the Vocal Enhancer effect in your effects panel and drag it onto your audio clip. You will need to adjust the vocal enhancer for your subject.

Navigate to the Effects Control panel and select the dropdown arrow under Vocal Enhancer until you see the custom setup option. Click the Edit button. You will see a box that pops up. Select Male or Female, depending on your subject.

6. Set All Peaks

Now that your audio is sounding great, it’s time to level it for your individual production. To do this, simply right click on the audio and select Audio Gain. Select Normalize All Peaks and set the level to -6db. You should now have decent audio that’s perfect for corporate videos, quick commercials, or news packages.
