For starters. How to mute audio in Premiere Pro?

Now let’s add sounds to opening titles and transitions. It is also very important to overlay sounds according to what is happening on your frame. 

We see a coffee machine on the frame. Add the appropriate sound. Since it is happening in a coffee shop, we can add sounds from a noisy cafe. 

Use audio transitions to fade in the sound – now it can look more natural.

Transitions are located in the Audio Tab > Audio Transition > Use Constant Power to fade in. You can also use these transitions to seamlessly stitch together audio tracks. 

Where to find sounds for sound design in Premiere Pro?

You can find a huge number of sounds on YouTube and other sourses. For example, let’s find the sound of coffee beans – we immediately see a huge number of videos. Choose the one you want and download it using plugins. 

Also, Adobe has its own large collection of sounds. You can find it on the web. 

The easiest and fastest option for applying sounds to transitions, opening texts, effects, and more, is to use plugins for Premiere Pro. You can add sounds to such transitions in two clicks. It’s fast and convenient. In this tutorial, we use Viewer from EasyEdit studio. It`s a free extension with thousands of templates inside. With help of the set of sounds in the extension, we can create many great animations with a sound.
