Hi guys, I will try to explain my problem as best as I can.
We have a Projekt where we have become new audios for it.
The audios have the same name and I believe that this confuses Premiere and imports the old Audios or some completely random, instead of the new ones.
I delete cache and it works for a bit, but then I get after some minutes the same problem.
Should I just normally try to name all the audios differently? Did someone had the same problem?

Hi Christian, 

This sounds strange. I understand you're importing a files in Premiere Pro but audio playback does not meet the original file.

Does it happen with any specific file format?

Which version of Premiere Pro are you using?

We're here to help.

Thanks,

Exactly! they are mp3 so there it shouldn't be the problem...
I reset the projekt with just the new audios and there is no problem, so it must be just premiere confusing the old/new audios and storing them in cache.
