How to Remove Background Noise in Premiere Pro

The following is how to remove background noise in Premiere Pro. In this way, you can make the sound/audio cleaner and clearer. No more buzzing, rattling, and other annoying noises.

Often the results of both video and audio recordings are not as good as expected. Whether it's because the conditions are busy, or there are tools that interfere with the results that are not pleasant to use.

Fortunately, with today's technology, some problems in production errors can be fixed in the editing (post-production) stage. Especially with special editing programs like Adobe Premiere Pro.

Keep in mind that the features that can be used above cannot solve all audio problems in Premiere Pro. We also need to look again at the quality of the original audio that is entered.

Every feature has a limit

Although the price of the Adobe Premiere Pro license is not cheap, there are still many problems that can't be solved just by editing it in this video editing application.

If the original audio/video quality is already very bad from the start, it is unlikely that it can be repaired during the editing process. Especially if you are a perfectionist, like it or not, you have to re-record the required sound (re-take) with better results.

But for mundane issues like background noise, buzzing sound, and more, this feature really helps me personally, and I seem to use this feature in all the audio I produce. hehe
