    Does recording audio require at least one video track?

      I needed to record audio while shooting a video and didn't have my handy Zoom with me.  I thought to instead set up Premiere to capture the audio. 

       

      I created a new, blank project, added a mono audio track, plugged a mic into my audio interface, enabled the mono track for recording in the audio track mixer, chose the input channel, clicked the record button, saw the meters bouncing - all well, right?

       

      Well when I hit "play" - nothing.  That is, not until I dragged some black video into the timeline.  Then - it worked. 

       

      This is not how the workflow is documented in Adobe's "Help and Tutorials" manual.

       

      It should be updated at some point - or this is a bug.
