Been having issues with audio tracks dropping in and out during playback both on the timeline and in preview window. Clips will play for a couple seconds and then the audio drops out, sometimes it comes hack, other times have to stop and start the clip only to have it happen again a few seconds later. On timeline one audio clip will drop while another continues to play. Anyone have an idea how to fix this?

No idea if this will apply to you but my problem with audio cut out occured on Windows whenever my footage was on external hard drive, which is almost always as it would be a nightmare to copy 500gb of material on the local disk everytime I want to edit. Turns out all I needed to do to solve the issue was to copy only ONE (lol) file from the whole disk to the local disk, and then the issue would stop. Hope that helps. Cheers.

I'm working in Premeire Pro 2022. Same issue with audio cutting in and out in the sequence. PP defaults the project audio format to 48000 HZ - 32 bit flaoting point - stereo. 

 

Right-click on your audio clip within your sequence and choose Properties to see your clip and the project defaults.

 

My source audio is recorded at 48000 HZ - 24 bit - stereo. It will play no problem when editing with 1080p footage, but if I'm working in 4k, then the audio cuts out in the sequence (and also the preview window). I believe its a buffering issue since the source audio does not match the project default format. So to fix the problem I convert my audio files to 32 bit floating point. its actually really easy to do...

 

Simply right-click on your audio clip in your sequence and choose "Edit Clip in Adobe Audition" and Audition will create an audio file that's set to 32 bit floating point, automatically replace the clip in the sequence, and add it to your project (the resulting file name will include "Audio Extracted"). At that point the audio should play fine. (you can confirm this by doing a SAVE AS in Audition and checking it's default settings)

 

To keep your files organized, I recommend going into Premeire preferences  (EDIT > PREFERENCES > AUDIO), and ticking the box that says to render Edit in Audition files to: "Next to original media files".

 

As for changing Premeire's default audio format... I haven't found where to make that happen. Sequence settings only allows you to choose a Sample rate, but not the bitrate. 

 

Hope this helps.

I also just ran into this issue, but I am working with a lot of media via LucidLink (not stored locally). Changing the default I/0 Buffer Size to the maximum value (see screenshot) helped. Try this out.

 

Cheers and good luck!

thanks for helping...  Could you start a new thread and describe your workflow and the pluses and minuses with LucidLink.  I'd be interested and I'm sure many others would also be...
