So I'm having a really strange problem, and I've googled around but haven't found ANYTHING close to my issue anywhere, so..
I have a clip - video is fine, audio is playing, everything is good!
But when the clip is cut, everything is fine BEFORE the cut, but everything is silent AFTER the cut.
It looks EXACTLY the same - the audio track is still there, it's not muted, and the audio is still fine BEFORE the cut. But for some reason there is no sound after the cut. I have NO IDEA why this is happening and am desperate for answers.

Looking at that clip, there's some effect applied to it ... see the yellow fx box? What effect is used on the clip?
Yes, that's just because I have raised the clip volume which you can see in the image. The effect was applied to the entire clip before cutting it.
Very strange. If you go back to an uncut state, does the audio return?
Yes it does! It's very confusing. Also if, after I cut it, I then nest the silent half of the track - the audio will return. I'm using that as a working solution for now, but really would like to get to the bottom of this and find an actual solution for whatever the problem is.
Does the audio meter indicate there's sound on playback for the 2nd clip? Trying to distinguish between a clip interpretation bug or sound hw playback issue somehow unique to the cut.
Just tested it and there is NO indication of sound on the audio meter on the second clip.
I'm not getting this behavior ... this is a puzzler, as I've gone through a few of the audio settings for tracks and still can't replicate this. Huh.
I had the same thing happen to me - did you ever figure out a resolution for this???? Much appreciated!
I also am having this problem and the only cause to this issue that I can think of is that there are a lot of cuts made beforehand. Is it possible there is a limit on cuts per sequence or clip?
Premiere is used for quite a few long-form movies, including some action flicks, with about a bazillion cuts per second. So it's not an issue with the number of cuts. It's not a common issue, so not something I've seen any 'fix' for.
I would personally delete the cache files and reopen Premiere, so ... try that.
Ok this has been melting my brain for days, but I think I might have discovered a work around. If you are working in a multi-camera sequence (as I was), I started losing audio tracks the more cuts I made. Sound before the cut, then no sound after the cut...
I selected everything after the cut, right click -> Multi-camera -> Flatten
This worked immediately and I have all of the audio back. I then selected all layers and linked them back up so that I can cut all tracks at the same time.
I have no idea how this is going to affect my downstream workflow, but can't really see another option right now. Hope it is helpful...
Man! You just save my life!!!! Thank you!
I think I found a fix to this. So I was working with a nested sequence and I nested it once again and it fixed the problem. Hope this helps!
