11 Essential Tutorials for Editing Sound in Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro

Film and video are primarily a visual medium, but if your project has sound, the quality of that audio is essential to its success. Great sound will elevate a project whereas poor sound will lower the overall quality of the video with otherwise great visuals. Devoting as much time to the audio in your Adobe Premiere Pro project as you are to the visuals will only help your project in the long run.

Adobe recognizes the importance of good audio quality enough to have an entirely separate program just for sound editing called Audition—but for those who aren’t experienced with Audition or more sophisticated sound editing in general, there are plenty of simple and effective ways to work with audio right in Adobe Premiere Pro, keeping your project files all in one place. That’s why we’ve rounded up these 11 simple tutorials to create a primer for editing the sound in your project without having to use multiple programs to do so. Whether you’re adjusting levels in your own music or the royalty-free music you’ve downloaded from our library, syncing a sound effect with a visual, or editing recorded dialogue in an interview, the videos below show you how it’s done and make your project the best it can be—all while never leaving your workflow in Premiere Pro.
