How To Normalize Audio In Premiere Pro (2022)

Hello! In this blog, I’ll be showing you how to normalize your audio in Adobe Premiere Pro. It’s really simple and easy to do and I recommend you do it with ANY audio you are working with.

What is Normalization?

Audio normalization is the application of a constant amount of gain to your audio recording. This brings the amplitude to a target level (which is called the norm). Because the same amount of gain is applied across the entire recording, the signal-to-noise ratio and relative dynamics are unchanged.

When to Normalize Audio?

When you have dialogue that’s recorded with your video, and it’s recorded with a very low volume, normalization will help maximise the waveform and help make it as loud as possible without it distorting.

Simply use the G key (for Gain) on your keyboard to bring up the Audio Gain window and set the Normalize Max Peak to around -1 dB (so that we don’t hit the red on the levels meters).

This will normalize your audio so that all of the loudest peaks will hit -1 dB. It’s really easy to do and makes it much easier to work with multiple clips. If you have a big project with lots of dialogue, it’ll be a great starting point!

If you’re working with dialogue, different microphones or you need to do some noise reduction in your videos, you need my free Adobe Premiere Pro Presets!
