Adobe Premiere CC users claim a bug is damaging MacBook Pro speakers

“Adobe representatives are advising Premiere CC users to turn off the microphone while using the audio enhancement tools

Multiple users are claiming that an Adobe Premiere CC bug is affecting MacBook Pro speakers. Users have taken to Adobe’s Premiere CC forum to report the bug, which is said to be completely corrupting the speakers on MacBook Pro laptops. Going by the complaints, this seems to be an issue with one of Adobe Premiere CC audio enhancement tools, such as cleaning up the audio or enhancing the speech.

The first complaint regarding this bug was posted in November last year, when a user detailed his experience saying, “I have a new 2 month old 15″ MBP. I Was working on a project, macbook volume was about on half, when suddenly an audio bug occurred with really loud screeching noise and not letting me pause it. After it stopped, the speakers were really quiet, and after the next restart they’re clearly blown.”

And going through that thread, it seems the issue is still unresolved as users are still reporting it. “Exactly the same issue here, has completely blown my speakers. It’s absolutely mental that this can happen, its a very serious issue that has basically destroyed the speakers on my brand new 2018 MacBook 15inch,” said another recently. However it doesn’t seem to be a very widespread problem otherwise we would have been hearing a to more about it. Moreover, we haven’t heard anything officially from Adobe till now regarding this issue.

Nevertheless company representatives have been active on the thread and are advising users to turn off the microphone while using the audio enhancement tools. This can be done going to Preferences > Audio Hardware > Default Input > No Input.
