How to Use CrumplePop’s EchoRemover 2™ with Adobe Premiere
Author: Cliff Dahlberg
It’s easy to record audio in a space that has too many hard surfaces and reflects those sound waves back at your mic. If your recording is a little too echo-y, it’s easy to remove that echo using Crumplepop’s EchoRemover 2™.

If you’re using Adobe Premiere Pro, all you need to do is open your effects tab, search Crumplepop, grab EchoRemover 2™ and drag it on to the audio track that has that unwanted echo in it.
Next, go to the audio effects and open up EchoRemover 2™. You’ll see four dials, a volume output control, and an on-off switch.
First, turn that switch in the upper right-hand corner on. When you do that all the other dials come to life.
And that’s all you need to know if you want to dive in and start playing around with how EchoRemover 2™ works! But if you’d like some settings tips based on our experience using this plugin for documentaries and podcasts, here’s what we recommend trying first:
Keep the adjustment on the high frequency at hundred percent. The middle dial can drop to about fifty percent, and then the dial controlling the lowest frequencies can be between twenty-five and fifty-percent strength.
This adjustment should keep the speaker’s voice pretty crisp, while removing the majority of that echo-y feedback. If you still hear more echo than you like, play with the main strength dial first — which begins at seventy-five percent — and see what it sounds like closer to one-hundred percent. If you still hear more than you like, slowly increase the strength on the middle fine tune dial.
And that’s it. It’s really just that simple, simple, simple.
