Eliminating White Noise in Adobe Premiere: A Step-By-Step Guide

Apr 5, 2024

Adobe Premiere Pro is an industry-standard video editing software that provides countless features for content creators. Along with video editing tools, Premiere also offers audio correction features to enhance your final product. One common issue many creators face is the presence of white noise in their audio recordings. Fortunately, Adobe Premiere has built-in tools to help eliminate white noise from your projects, and this article will guide you step-by-step in achieving crystal-clear audio quality.

Step 1: Identify White Noise
To remove white noise To remove white noise from your audio clip, you must first identify the noise frequency within your recording. Listen carefully to your clip and find a section containing only the white noise you want to remove.

Step 2: Open Audio Track in Adobe Audition
Right-click the audio clip in the Premiere timeline, then select 'Edit Clip in Adobe Audition.' This action will open the audio clip in Adobe's audio editing software, where you will have access to more powerful noise reduction tools.

Step 3: Capture Noise Print
In Adobe Audition, select the section of the audio clip that contains only the white noise. Then, navigate to the 'Effects' tab and click on 'Noise Reduction / Restoration,' followed by 'Capture Noise Print.' This step allows Audition to recognize the specific noise you wish to remove from the entire track.

Step 4: Apply Noise Reduction
With the noise print captured, select the entire audio clip by pressing Ctrl+A (Windows) or Cmd+A (Mac). Return to the 'Effects' tab, then click on 'Noise Reduction / Restoration' and select 'Noise Reduction (Process).' A new window will appear, displaying various settings for noise reduction. Begin by adjusting the 'Noise Reduction' slider, which controls the percentage of noise being removed from the audio. Balance is crucial here; too little noise reduction may not remove the white noise entirely, while too much can distort the original audio. Preview the result and adjust the settings accordingly until you achieve the desired level of noise removal.

Step 5: Save and Return to Premiere Pro
Once you're satisfied with the noise reduction settings, click 'Apply' to process the entire audio clip. Save the edited clip in Adobe Audition (Ctrl+S or Cmd+S), then close the program. Adobe Premiere will automatically update the audio clip in your timeline, and the white noise should be effectively removed from your recording.

In conclusion, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition provide an efficient workflow for eliminating white noise from your audio tracks. By following this step-by-step guide, you'll be able to achieve clear and professional-sounding audio for all your video editing projects.
