Why does my audio sound like this?

PostMon Aug 21, 2017 4:05 pm

Hey guys,

I am working on a project where this track seems to sound absolutely weird. It's working fine on the media player, but on davinci the music doesn't sound correct. Sharing a small sample of the export:

Please help coz audio editing seems to be extremely buggy for me in davinci, even in the latest update.

The file is a preview I downloaded from premiumbeat. It is an mp3 file.

I have MP4 + AC3 5.1 and .MP3 and no issue with DRV14B7.

Surely the encoding settings or the encoder?
For the MP3, I use all the time parameters like the following.

Code: Select all
Format: MPEG Audio
File size: 8.62 MiB
Duration: 3 min 45 s
Overall bit rate mode: Constant
Overall bit rate: 320 kb / s

Format version: Version 1
Profile Format: Layer 3
Fashion: Stereo gasket
Duration: 3 min 45 s
Bit rate mode: Constant
Bit rate: 320 kb / s
Channel (s): 2 channels
Sampling rate: 48.0 kHz
Compression mode: Lossy
Stream size: 8.62 MiB (100%)

generaly I convert before the audio in wave or aiff track, using cubase or soundtrack pro. But also using mp3 original soundtrack, never I had this problem.
