Best Effects For A Great Sound Inside Adobe Premiere Pro

Premiere Pro has a lot of amazing audio effects that can make your recording sound better. However, your content might not need all of these effects. In this blog post, I’ll share the essential 3 best audio effects in Adobe Premiere that you can use to sound great. Moreover, I’ll teach you how to add these effects to a preset so that you can use it for future projects with just a click of a button.

Effects #1: Parametric Equalizer

The Parametric Equalizer (EQ) adjusts the balance between different frequencies in your audio recording. With parametric EQ, you can enhance certain frequencies or reduce others, depending on the desired effect. It is an easy-to-use audio effect that can help you fix issues like low-end rumble and harsh high-end frequencies.

How it works is you need to manually adjust the frequency bands to your liking using the EQ graph. For example, if you increase the high-end frequencies and change their shape, it can help make your voice sound clearer and crispier. On the other hand, by reducing the low-end frequencies, you can eliminate low-end rumbles.

Effects #2: Dynamics

The second essential audio effect in Premiere Pro is Dynamics, which helps even out the levels of your recording. It is very helpful in fixing problems with audio levels that vary too much such as having speakers that talk much quieter than others.

The Dynamics effect is divided into a few types — compressor, expander, limiter, and noise gate. These different types work differently.

For example, the compressor compresses the high bits of your voice down, making it easier to listen to. On the other hand, the limiter sets a certain limit so your audio will not be able to go any higher.

NOTE: You don’t need to apply all types in editing your recording.

Effects #3: Reverb

The third essential audio effect in Premiere Pro is Reverb. This effect can add sparkle, smoothness, and richness to your recording. Moreover, adding reverb to your audio creates a sense of distance or otherworldliness, which can be perfect for a scary or suspenseful effect.

There are a few types of Reverb in Premiere Pro — Convolution Reverb, Studio Reverb, and Surround Reverb. Each type works well on different occasions but if you are often recording in a small space like me, the Studio Reverbs is recommended.

I recommend you experiment with the different Reverb settings and presets until you achieve your desired result.

How to Save the Effects as a Preset

Saving your audio effects as a preset can be very useful in the future. It will allow you to reapply the same EQ, Dynamics, and Reverb settings to a different recording by just dragging and dropping the preset. By doing this, it will save you time and effort.

To save effects into a preset, you need to drop those effects into your recording. Manipulate the different settings on the audio effects until you achieve your desired result. Then on the effect controls tab, select all effects you added > right click > Save preset.

Now, if you want to add the preset to different audio in the future, just search it from the effects tab and then drag and drop it to your timeline.
