Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 does not play music files but play video audio

I can plug the mp3 in the time code but no audio. Not even levels are being read. But when I plug in video footage, the audio plays.

    Well, PPro is a video editor, not an audio editor... so I have never tried just putting audio with no video on the timeline


    But, having said that, I have read of problems with "some" mp3 files... with the solution being to convert to 48khz WAV

    Welcome to the forum.


    I agree with John T., regarding some MP3 material. See this article:


    If you are having issues, when using Audio, but no Video, you might want to try one of two things:


    • Create Black Video (from the New Icon), and place that onto Video Track 1. Extend that to cover the music files.
    • Create Transparent Video (from the New Icon), and perform the same operation.


    When you go to Export, just choose Export Audio only, if you want no Video Stream.


    Good luck,
