Adobe fixes the bug on Premiere Pro CC which can damage MacBook Pro speakers

Earlier this month, many Adobe Premiere CC users encountered a worrying problem. In some cases, a software bug caused their new MacBook Pro speakers to make noise and damage. This week, Adobe released a patch for the program to correct this problem.

Adobe August Security Update

In a forum post, a user reported that “macbook volume was about on half, when suddenly an audio bug occurred with really loud screatching noise and not letting me pause it. After it stopped, the speakers were really quiet, and after the next restart they’re clearly blown. Initially I blamed the hardware, though the same thing happened a day later with my Sony 1000X-M3 headphones, luckily the headphones are ok, but that did give me a heart attack.”

On Friday, an Adobe representative confirmed in a forum reply that a few users reported problems with speakers that might affect the latest MacBook Pro in Premiere Pro and released a software patch. So, Premiere Pro CC version 13.0.3 was released by Adobe.
