Earlier this month CNet and 9to5Mac reported that a number of Adobe Premiere CC users experienced a worrying problem with the program: a bug appeared to blow the speakers on the late-model MacBook Pros in some cases. This week, Adobe released a patch for the application that fixed the problem.
In a forum post, a user reported a “really loud twilight [sic] sound,” it wouldn’t let them shut it down. “After it stopped, the speakers were very quiet and after the next restart they were blown clear.” Others chimed in with the same complaint and presented examples on YouTube.
On Friday, an Adobe representative in a reply to the forum confirmed that “a few users are reporting a problem in Premiere Pro that can affect the speakers of the latest MacBook Pro,” pointing to a software patch.
The tab release notes that it fixed four problems: the loud noise “when playing a project and adding an effect”, the scream that occurred when a user switched between EQ presets, audio “when routing audio to multiple track outputs with effects and buzz while “playing silence with an effect on a submix track.”
