my audio keeps cutting out
how about some details to go with your 'Details'.
What do you need?
Length of audio? Size of project? HDV or SD? Computer specs?
The exact sequence of events that led from my audio working fine to the point it started going screwy? My weight? Hat size, perhaps>
Can i jump in here?
Im having similar problems! Ive been using premiere for 5 years now, and CS3 since its release and have never came across this problem before.
What happens with me is complete random audio dropouts. the waveform looks fine, and the video channel is good, but i get 2 seconds of blank audio every now and again. Im editing HDV at 1440*1080. This happens in more than one project, from very simple ones to much more complex.
I have tried using every different audio driver in the preferences dialogue, and I haven't changed any hardware configs.
Im on XP, CS3 production premium 3.2.0. Core 2 duo, 2Gb RAM.
Soundblaser XFI card (which has been great...).
Also, when i play a song in Windows media player only the audio in premiere drops out. So it doesn't seem to be a system thing...
Can anyone throw some suggestions at me?

On my last project I had problems with a voiceover I recorded into Premiere Pro dropping out. Not on export, only on playback. Major annoyance, but I never did find the solution.
Try deleting the cache and see if that helps.
Hi Steven, Frustrated. Thanks for stepping in.
I found I just saved it, turned off Pro and shut down Vista.
Restarted and opened everything up, and it worked fine.
My theory is it's a RAM overload.
I did have about 13 'layers' open and I was cutting a full hour down to fit 3 minutes.
And I also have the 'undo steps' set at something around a gazillion-billion.
I figure shutting everything down would clear the RAM.
Let me know what you think
That happened to me too... Sometimes I got a blank on the sound, so what I did was with virtual dub I got the wave from the movie, and inserted it where I wanted the sound, but this was just a last minute solution
thanks for the heads up on virtual dub.
I'll check into that this week when I haven't been drinking ;-)
Viva la long-weekend!
lol, you welcome
I've experienced the exact same thing. I was editing a pretty simple movie consisting of several clips, a few titles, and some cross-fade transitions. I added a music track, and whenever I made a change to one of the clips, the audio would drop out at random points.
I found I could recover the audio by saving the project, closing PPRo, and opening the project again. The problem would reoccur later, however.
@ studioera: Is the clip you are cutting mpeg by any chance?
I might add I'm standing behind my theory that it was a RAM problem, since I had over an hour of mpeg in High Def, cut up all over the board in 13 layers, while goofing around with After Effects.
Since I turned the computer off and rebooted it (ie. cleared the RAM) it's been working fine since.
IF I'm correct, the same problem that others are experiencing could be because their RAM is set too low? (ie. they don't have enough RAM)
What do you guys think?
PS>Craig, why do you ask if it is mpeg?
