Fixed bug in Premiere Pro CC that could “pop” MacBooks Pro speakers

Earlier this month, we reported that a bug in Premiere Pro CC could “pop” MacBook Pro speakers. Today, the Adobe released a software update to resolve this issue.

The bug affected a good number of users of the video editor, which suddenly caused loud and distorted audio to be played through the speakers – resulting in permanent damage. In most cases, the problem arose when editing the audio settings for the videos.

Adobe’s workaround was to work around the problem by making sure the microphone was turned off when using audio enhancement tools (in Preferences »Audio hardware» Standard input »No input). After that, a company representative informed them that they were aware of the bug and that they were already working on a solution to reduce these risks.

Now, apparently, everything has actually been resolved in version 13.0.3 Premiere Pro CC – now available through the Adobe Creative Cloud update system. Here’s what is in the update release notes: «fixing problems with Premiere Pro that reduce interaction with noise and help minimize possible impacts».

The problem is that Adobe does not say in all words that the bug has been solved, it says only that it helps “minimize possible impacts”. That is, in my understanding, the problem could still manifest itself in some cases.

In addition, how are the users who have been affected and have their speakers permanently damaged? To give you an idea, a user who went through the problem went to an Apple Store and received an account of more than $ 600 to perform the repair on his 15 ″ MacBook Pro 2018 – the value is high because, in this case (as we know ), Apple needs to change the top case internal (in addition to the speakers, this includes the keyboard, trackpad and battery).

THE MacRumors contacted Adobe to see what these cases of users with damaged MacBooks Pro will look like, but for now, the company has not commented.
