Bug in Adobe Premiere Pro CC May Pop MacBook Pro Speakers

Software bug something quite common. But one that ends up damaging something physical well, the other story. And according to various reports both in the discussion forum of the Adobe as in social networks, a problem in Premiere Pro CC (video editing software) is popping speakers from MacBooks Pro.

The first report that gave rise to the others was published last November by andripeetso. He stated that he was working on his new 15 ″ MacBook Pro (with only two months of use) at half power, when suddenly the bug manifested itself with a very shrill noise that simply wouldn't let it pause. When it finally stopped, the speakers were muted; When restarting the Mac, he then found that the sound was completely burst.

At first he thought it was a hardware problem (from Apple), but a day later the same thing happened with the Sony 1000X-M3 headphones luckily, the headphones returned to normal after the problem manifested. But that, of course, made a snap in andripeetso, since it could no longer be something restricted to MBP speakers.

After this report, several others also appeared on the Adobe forum; after the 9to5Mac, so many were appearing on social networks, indicating that this is not something specific, that happened to one or two people only. Apparently, the problem happens when using an Adobe Premiere Pro CC audio enhancement tool, such as one to mute the sound or one that enhances speech.

According to an Adobe representative, one way to avoid the issue is by making sure the microphone is turned off when using these tools to do so, go to Preferences Audio Hardware Standard Input No Input.

This suggests that the microphone may be picking up the speaker output and amplifying everything, causing the problem. Obviously, such behavior should not happen and Adobe urgently needs to correct it.

For those interested, the video below shows the problem. But beware: if you give play, turn your computer or headphone volume to a minimum!

Let everything be resolved as soon as possible!
