If you run Adobe Premiere Pro CC on a MacBook Pro, you may want to read this.
As reported by MacRumors earlier today, some people have been sharing that their MacBook Pro speakers were blown out while running Premiere Pro CC. Apparently the program emits a very loud, feedback-type sound from the MacBook Pro’s built-in speakers while editing audio from video clips, and is causing permanent damage.
These reports have been coming in from users posting to the Adobe community forums. The discussion thread regarding the matter started in November 2018, however more people have claimed the same thing has happened to them through January 2019. From the forum responses, it does appear that Adobe has been made aware of the issue.
User stevens12150610 wrote in after allegedly speaking to the company: “Adobe had me check the audio hardware settings. Under the default input [Preferences > Audio Hardware > Default Input] they changed it from Mac microphone to no input. They said that was why I blew my speakers.”
With the length of time the forum post has been active, it would seem multiple versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CC could be affected by the bug. However, because details on what causes the issue are scarce, it’s unknown whether this is an Adobe issue or an issue with Apple’s hardware or software.
