when i import an audio music track, the sound appears to be compressed into half the space. The second half of the space is silent! I have tried converting MP3 to WAV, it did work on one then failed on another. Anybody understand why? Thank you. Chrisaudio.JPG

The problem was due to audio cache unable to create files to the present cache location. The very nice people at Adobe were able to solve it. Thank you to all who also suggested solutions.

Are you positive this audio file has audio to the very end?

What version of Premiere does this occur in? The reason I ask is this happened to me a while back in CC2017. When I opened the file in CC2018, the entire file came in.

A quick workaround is to open the file in Quicktime and export as a WAV file, then import the WAV into Premiere.

I am also having this problem. In addition, after importing an audio file to the timeline, it plays back a segment of a previously recorded voiceover! I have no clue how to fix or address this problem and I cannot even build a video because of it. HELP!!! How did you get the folks at ADOBE to fix it?

Try making a copy of that audio file (outside of Premiere) and rename it something different, then bring it back into Premiere. Does the file playback correctly?

This worked for me, thank you. I was experiencing the same issue, only I lost the audio of the entire audio clip instead of half of it. It was occurring on both my PC and Mac. I didn't rename the file, but copy and pasted it somewhere else. I imported it into my project, and the audio was finally seen and could be heard.
