Does anyone else have this issue? After using Premiere for a while (maybe an hour or so straight) the audio meters peak indicator will not reset when you start/stop. What do I mean? If your audio level peaks or goes into the red, it stays there like it should letting you know that the levels had hit above +0db. This is normal. This is good. But usually when you stop the timeline and start again, that red peak indicator is reset and disappears. But for me, after prolonged use (which is say about an hour or so), the meters stop resetting and the red does not go away unless I click on the meter to make it disappear. It looks like this even after stopping/starting the timeline:
***Meters work fine for the first 30mins - hour or so of editing. Hitting stop and then start again resets the meters as it should.
***Eventually the peak indicator (see screenshot above) gets stuck and won't go away. The meters continue to work fine, but the red does not go away.
Only way to then reset it is by clicking on the meter itself. Restarting Premiere Pro CC will put everything back to normal again and it should work fine again...for a while...before its starts to lock up again. This issue was present in 7.0.0 as well as the newly updated 7.0.1 I'm on a 2011 27" iMac with 16gb of RAM. (I've submitted a bug report, but curious if this happens to others.)
Next time you work for a while, let the audio peak and see if it doesn't go away. As nice and helpful as loud meter is, my question is that if/when audio does peak, how come that red peak indicator doesn't go away once I stop and start again? It does when I start Premiere, but again, after a while it starts to stick.
Is this a known bug?
Hmmm. I'm wondering if it's just me. I just gave my assistent editor the "all clear" to upgrade from CS6 to CC now that multicam is fixed so I guess I'll wait and see if she runs into the same thing. It's not the end of the world but it happens every time I work so it gets kinda annoying pretty fast.

Maybe it's just you who has that much clipping audio. Most of us tend to avoid that.
As much as I wish all my audio were perfectly leveled at all times... You mix live weddings with DJ's that don't know their own equipment with layers of audio in post and its a recipe for some +0db audio.
In all seriousness, I do hope that if others see this bug, they'll chime in and that this bug gets fixed. It's annoying.
