I am an infrequent user of Premier Pro and have been having troubles with the audio of footage I edit. I'm sure it must be something simple and was hoping one of you might be able to point it out for me.

The problem is that sometimes when I import/capture footage I can press play in the monitor window and hear the audio just fine; other times, I cannot. When the audio plays up in this way, I can only hear anything by scrubbing the cursor either in the timeline, or by jogging it in the monitor window.

I can't find any audio preferences that would appear to make a difference, and my friend has experienced the same problem so it's unlikely to be hardware related.

I'm sure it's something very simple. Anyone care to put me out of my misery?

Cheers
