Will the next version Adobe Premiere adress the issue of audio conforming?
Try to import 1TB of footage that has 1 hour takes.
Do you how long it takes when you can start cutting?
If this can be done in FCP7 ( 32 bit app !!!!!! ) and FCPX , then why can't Premiere?
In a lot of cases, when you reopen the project , it starts conforming again!

1 day waiting for conforming on a fast setup.
Thats an issue! :)

These are not exotic file formats and audio specs.
This is a Quadcore i7 Imac system with a Thunderbolt Pegasus box that goes 600 MB/s.
I import the same bulk of footage in a 32 bit application ( FCP7) and i can start cutting in 10 seconds after import.
They're two different programs that work differently. Premiere Pro creates 32 bit floating point 'conformed' audio files for use within the program, allowing very fine precision audio editing and very high quality effects. If you prefer the way FCP works, use that.
Conforming a 16 bit audio file to 32 bit floating point doesn't make the quality of the 16 bit file better. 32 bit floating point is no miracle worker.
I can totally understand an exotic format like MP3 or MPG needs conforming to make it work in the software.
But Premiere should be able to handle high quality 16 bit audio without processing like ANY other Audio editing application or NLE in the world.
I still believe it's a flaw. Not a 'way of working'.
after import of footage PP starts to build peakfiles to show the audio in the timeline.
That is a non blocking process - so you can start to edit but havn't available the waveform display from start...
If you have a fast HDD array or SSD this should go very fast - it takes just seconds fo me to generate the peakfiles for 14 feature length mono audio channels
If PP "starts conforming audio" it typically rerenders and timestretch/pitches audio to a new framerate. that takes much longer and you should check if you want this or do the conversion in a dedicated DAW for better detail control...
--> Is PP really doing an "audio conform" or just generating peak files?
