I understand that I'm down to the frame size on the timeline scale but I need to line these up, otherwise it sounds completely ridiculous. I can't move the two closer together since one overshoots the line-up.

  1. What is the best "bandaid" fix for now?
  2. How can I avoid this problem later? I record audio on two different mics, I need to be able to perfectly line them up.

Audio in Premiere can be aligned by analysing two or more audio files and automatically comparing for similarity.

For the audio recorded on separate microphones, select both clips, right-click and select 'Synchronise'. Select 'Audio' as a synchronize point and press OK.

You can use the Source editor to fine-tune the in and out points to remove any silence before and after the microphone recording.

This feature can be extremely useful for aligning multi-cam footage.


Okay, I was able to find a band-aid quicky fix. The desired audio/video tracks to be synchronized must be unlinked and only one audio track has to be moved separately, then you can match it up to milliseconds. Now, in my case, I make commentary over a video, so my commentary will be simply early or late, depending which track you move, but only by about a frame, which is not a big deal for me - as long as the audio and video are synchronized. If you're making a song or something very "flowy", this will probably not be helpful.
