Learn how to record voiceovers, and add and refine pre-recorded audio into your Adobe Premiere Rush CC project.

You can add pre-recorded audio clips to your project, or record voice-­overs or other audio directly into your timeline.

Record audio and voiceovers

To start recording a voice-over, click the blue + icon in the left toolbar and select Voiceover. The track controls expand, revealing a red button to start recording your voice-over.

Now, you have options to:

  • Start and stop recording
  • See audio tracks appear at the bottom of the timeline; you can move audio clips around within these tracks, or choose to record on a different audio track

  1. Record a voice-over right into the timeline. Click on the microphone icon in the audio track to which you want the voice-over clip recorded. This turns the microphone icon into a red button, which allows you to start and stop the voice-over recording. Position the playhead where you want to begin recording.

  2. To start recording, click the red Record button in the audio track to which you want the voice-over clip recorded.

    Premiere Rush moves the playhead back three seconds and displays a 3-­2-­1 countdown in the Preview monitor, so that you can prepare for your recording. You can also hear the sound cues during the countdown. Audio is not recorded until the countdown is complete. When the countdown finishes, begin your voice-­over or other audio input.

  3. To stop the recording, click the same red Stop button.

    The audio clip appears in the audio track, beginning where the playhead was originally positioned.

    This audio clip is just like any other clip in your timeline, so you can trim, split, duplicate, or delete it. You can also add transitions to it, or refine it further in the audio panel.

Recorded audio clips appear as audio items in the Project panel. If you no longer need these voice-over clips in your project, you can delete them from the Project Panel (they need to be removed from the timeline first). Voice-over clips are named Voiceover with incrementing numbers.

Add and edit pre-recorded audio

You can add audio like music, a pre-recorded voice-over, or sound effects by clicking the blue + button and selecting Add Media.

Use the Audio panel in Premiere Rush to refine your audio. This panel provides simple controls to repair sound, improve clarity, and add audio enhancements that help your videos sound professionally mixed.

About the Audio panel

The Audio panel contains various controls and settings grouped into three sections: Basic, Advanced, and Channels.

  • Basic: Adjust the volume of the selected clip, or mute it.
  • Advanced: Refine the clip using contextual controls based on the type of audio (Voice, Music, or Other); you can change the type of audio here as well.
  • Channels: This section allows you to view and mute individual channels within your audio clip.

Nota:

The Channels section is only available on desktop. It is not available on iOS devices.

Adjust your audio clips

You can do some basic adjustments to your audio clips.  Move the Clip Volume slider to increase or decrease the audio volume of a clip.  You can also mute an audio clip by selecting Mute.

Classify your audio clips

When you import a clip that has audio - such as an A/V clip or audio only clip, Premiere Rush automatically detects the audio type as either Voice, Music, or Other.

If you want to change the audio type, select the clip in the timeline and choose another audio type in the Advanced section of the Audio panel.

After a clip is assigned an audio type, for example Voice for a voiceover clip, the Advanced section of the Audio panel presents you with contextual controls for that audio type. This allows you to improve the way your audio clip sounds with easy-to-use options.

Balance Sound

Select Balance Sound if you want to make quiet sounds louder, and loud sounds quieter throughout your clip.

Auto Duck

Select Auto Duck to automatically reduce the volume of music clips when Voice clips - such as a voiceover or an A/V clip with talking - are present in your timeline. This option makes it easier to hear the Voice clips, while music is playing in the background.

Premiere Rush automatically tracks any changes to audio clips in the timeline and adjusts the ducked portions of the music clip for you. Control the amount of Auto-Ducking using the Reduce by slider.

Moving the slider to the left with a lower value means that the music gets louder and the duck less intense. Moving the slider to the right with a higher value means that the music gets quieter and the duck more intense.


Order or reorder audio channels

You can manipulate the audio channels within an audio clip. Twirl open the Channels section of the Audio panel to see the channels within the audio clip, and reorder them by dragging them up or down.

You can also enable or disable audio channels by clicking the channel labels  (for example,  L or R).
