Powered by Adobe Sensei, Remix in Premiere Pro saves hours of cutting, rippling, adding fades, and previewing results, trying to fit a piece of music to the length of a scene.
Whether your music clips come from a favorite stock audio service like Adobe Stock, your personal or commercial libraries, or even your neighbor's garage band, you can use Remix to find the ideal cut points or loops, retiming and rearranging your songs almost instantly.
When you apply Remix, Premiere Pro analyzes measuring several qualities of each beat in a song, comparing them to every other beat. Remix then finds the path of highest confidence based on those qualities, to create a musically coherent and seamless remix of the song, including cuts and crossfades.
To use Remix:
When you remix a song, consider elements like target duration, dynamics (how many different sections there are in the song), and the type of music.
Use the Customize sliders in the Essential Sound panel to try out different arrangements.
Simply select an audio clip, enable Remix, and then edit these properties.
There is a slight timing issue with preview versions of Adobe Stock music. If you use Remix on a Preview and then decide to purchase the track, check the timing of your remix with the full version. If necessary, reapply Remix to the original full-length song.
If you know the duration you're trying to achieve, you can type this in the Target Duration text in the Essential Sound panel Remix Properties. You can also use the Remix tool in the Toolbar panel to drag the length of the music clip to match your content visually. Depending on factors like the original tempo and composition of the song, and other parameters, Remix finds a version of the music within 5 seconds of the target duration and usually within 1 second.
Adjust this parameter to control the number of cuts and crossfades made in a Remix. Lower values make as few cuts as necessary, while higher values give the algorithm more flexibility to adapt to dynamic songs.
Adjust this parameter to quickly preview alternative remixes, focusing on either more melodic or harmonic elements of the song. A track with a strong solo instrument, like a trumpet or voice, may get better results with a melodic variation, while an orchestral or chorale piece may sound more natural with a harmonic variation.
Every edit Remix makes is displayed as a vertical zig-zag line on the new audio clip. Move your playhead a little before these indicators and press Play. You can hear the new edit in real-time. You can also double-click the clip to open the remixed song in the Source Monitor and listen to it in isolation.
