    Hey there. Could really use some help. I’m working on a 30 minute video and have done several voiceovers without incident. Now, suddenly, when I record, it makes my voice sound several pitches lower. Help?

    I would get out of Premiere and record the track in Audition or the free app – Audacity. Export as a wave file and import into Premiere. Alt – open a new project in Premiere, record a few lines and see if you have the same problem. Export as WAV file and see if it sounds ok when played through another app, such as QuickTime. I don’t record directly into Premiere Pro. I used to use Audacity, now I use Audition. Both are excellent. Good luck!

    Agreed – I record all of my narration via Audition and import back into Premiere as a wav as well.

    I think I did it this way since before Premiere had VO capabilities and saw no need to change my process.

    Check the clip property in Interpret footage. A sample rate change or misinterpretation may be creating the pitch change.
