Metalic voice after Adobe Premiere DV -> MPEG conversion using Mainconcept encoder

    I have noticed the following problem:
    I have a DV project in AP 6.5 wth voice 32kHz from SONY cam. I added
    some CD quality music (44kHz) to timeline. When I export the project
    using MainConcept MPEG encoder (v 1.3) in DVD mode - 48kHz, jont
    stereo, I got an audio part which sounds metallic comparing to
    original. For first glance It seems to be normal, but you can hear
    that the audio is little hissed/metalic. It does not depend on audio
    bitrate I set. Important that when I export the project to normal
    Microsoft AVI (32kHz), audio is the same as in AP - no metalic flavor.
    Finaly I can then extract audio from this AVI and convert it to 48kHz
    MPEG without this metalic surpise using other standalone application,
    but it is not normal way to build DVD.

    Do you have an idea what is the reason for this?


    PS. All AP audio sampling settings I have set identical - 32kHz
    I did not do a test what would happen if I did not add this CD 44kHz
    track - if I kept only original audio from my DV camcorder.

    possibly from the 32K to 48K audio conversion. Premiere has a setting
    for conversion quality on the audio menu. make sure you have the
    highest quality selected.
