Adobe Premiere CC for Mac

Earlier this month, it was reported that a bug within Adobe Premiere Pro software was causing some MacBook Pro speaker units to blow out.

At the time of the initial report, the number of those affected by the bug was small, with about a dozen people coming forward. However, after the bug became pubic knowledge even more people started to come forward and raise concerns that their hardware had been impacted as well. Now, weeks later, Adobe has provided a fix. The company has confirmed that it is updating Premiere Pro CC to fix the bug that caused some speakers to blow out.

The issue caused some MacBook Pro owners to hear distorted and extremely loud audio while using the application. At the time, it was suggested that turning of the microphone on the computer would reduce the probability that the bug would cause an issue. However, that was just a temporary fix.

The software update is available now, and it brings the version number up to 13.0.3. The new software is available through Adobe’s Creative Cloud service. Adobe describes the particular fix as: “Fixed issues with Premiere Pro that reduce noise interaction and help minimize possible impact”.

At the time of publication, it is not clear if Adobe plans on reimbursing the MacBook Pro owners who paid to get their speakers fixed due to the bug. If the company does come out and say anything in this regard, we will update this post accordingly. The update for Adobe Premiere Pro is available now, so if you have the app installed on your MacBook Pro, make sure to update as soon as possible.
