    No sound during editing


      I have Premiere Elements 3 and for some reason I cant get the sound to come out while editing during playback. The audio track is enabled and I can when I write click on the track and go to edit.  It plays.  It has worked before but for some reason this project it is not working


      Any ideas would be most appreciated

            It could be related to the video format you are working with. What type of camcorder did it come from?


            Or it could be your ASIO settings. Go to Premiere Elements Edit/Preferences/Audio Hardware and click the ASIO Settings buttons. Make sure that the settings in the program match your actual hardware configuration.

              This ARTICLE will give you some things to consider, regarding Audio.


              Have you updated your audio drivers in the last week, or so. If not, that would be my suggestion.


              Also, as Steve says, please tell us about your Project Preset and also you source footage. The more detail, the better. If you need to find the details, the great free utility, G-SPOT, will tell you all about your source footage.


              Good luck,

                It was the ASIO settings.  I have two hardware settings;HDMI to my tv and speakers for the PC.  I had swapped it over in Windows to the speakers but did not realize that there were settings in the application that also had to be enabled.


                Thank you very much

                  Great news, and thanks for reporting. The various settings and their locations were what prompted me to do the general Audio article in the first place. I felt that it was easier to group a lot of possibilities into one place, than play Twenty Questions, until the exact cause was found.


                  You might want to check out any of your other programs, that use Audio, as they might need to be reset too. I had to go with the free, universal driver, ASIO4ALL, for my DD 5.1 SS on my Creative 24-bit Live card. I knew to set it in PrPro, Encore and Audition. It was not until later on, that I found that I had to set it in PowerDirector, and a dozen other programs, including 4 by Magix. Just never thought about having so many Audio programs, with hardware settings!


                  Good luck,
