DeNoise effect muffling audio
[BUG] New DeNoise effect muffles audio at start of cut track. The now obsolete DeNoiser and Adaptive Noise Reduction worked very well. New DeNoise is great apart from this bug. Every time I cut an audio track which has the DeNoise effect (essentially all), the start of each cut piece sounds like it's muffled. There is NO work around.

The lack of documentation that it drops the first couple seconds wastes many people's time. If you're not going fix it at least add a disclaimer!

YES! Thank you SO MUCH. I couldn't figure out for the life of me why this was happening. Kirsty, you've saved my project. Thank you!!

SOLUTION! Finally worked it out. It's dumb but if you follow these steps, you'll have the same success I did. I did this for voice over so will use that example.
1. Create a new sequence and bring all the voice over audio clips you want to DeNoise into it. You will need to remove any audio effects each clip has.
2. Add some extra voice over audio to the start of your tracks, but make sure you don't leave too big a gap between this extra audio and your wanted voice over. Keep it close. The extra audio will be the part DeNoise will muffle, so you can remove it later! Don't add any audio effects to this yet!
3. Export the audio clips out as a single mp3 or wav. You are "nesting" the audio essentially (premier hurry up and bring nesting function for audio tracks!) Make sure you are keeping this in its own sequence so you don't end up accidentally exporting out any music or added SFX with this process.
4. Re-import into premier. Add your audio effects including DeNoise.
5. Re-export audio as mp3. This is now a single-track of voice over audio, with a bit of extra at the beginning, and the DeNoise affect applied.
6. Re-Import the audio back into premier project. Find the bit at the start which DeNoise will have muffled and remove it.
7. VOILA! You now have a DeNoise edited audio track that no longer has the muffled audio at the beginning.
I tried SO many options and this is the one that worked for me. At first, I added extra audio at the start and a big gap before my voice-over started. Bad idea. DeNoise muffled both the start of the extra audio and the start of my voice over. When I kept it really tight, it WORKED!

Yes! Exact same issue. The best I managed to do was export all my audio clips out and re-import as one audio track. DeNoise STILL muffles the first few seconds of audio. I am wondering if I add some random audio to the start of the track and just fade that bit down it might work? I'll get back to you!
Same issue! Haven't figured out a workaround yet aside from disabling denoise effect altogether. Which obviously then I'm working with noise...Please help, thanks.
Same issue here. Please fix.

Yes, same issue. I've tried a couple of work arounds without success and this is really impacting on the quality of my edits.
I only get the 'puff' of sound at the start of each audio clip when I export the media - in the editor itself it seems to analyse the clip and this puff henceforth disappears. Very frustrating!

I'm having the same issue. Thank you for posting!
