Audition CS5.5 won't play tracks
on Aug 7, 2012 at 1:53:47 pm

I'm using Audition for the first time, so this may simply be user error.

After exporting a clip from PPro to Audition, the space bar and play button, while changing the state of the playback buttons' appearances, doesn't play back the audio.

As a follow-up, what I'm trying to do is remove some hiss that I believe is an artifact of the automatic gain control on my GH2. This is a live recording of a concert and there are no periods of silence that I can pull a sample from to perform an adaptive noise reduction on.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Does the playhead move when you hit space with the PPro clip open?
Do the track meters show anything?
Does Audition play other audio files?

Thanks Stefan.

I successfully opened another audio file, rather than exporting it from PPro. I was able to edit that file.
After that, I was able to export and edit the sequence from PPro. Not sure what was up. Maybe a stuck driver?
Anyway, crisis averted. I used parametric eq to manage the hiss.

Thanks!

This might be too late to be of any use for the original poster, but for future Google searchers, I thought I'd share my solution.

I tried to export a Premiere CS6 sequence to Audition CS6 for editing using "Edit > Edit in Adobe Audition > Sequence" in Premiere. After Audition opened with all of my audio tracks from my video project, I pressed play. No sound would play, the playhead cursor didn't move, however the play button in Audition lit up green like it was trying to play.

This stumped me until I realized that Audition's audio hardware preferences weren't set to the proper audio driver. They were set to my default Windows audio driver and not my USB mixer than my speakers are plugged into.

I fixed this in Audition using the "Edit > Preferences > Audio Hardware" and choosing a different Default Output.

I hope that is helpful to someone! :)

I just wanted to interject.
I was having a similar problem. I would load a track for editing, but when I click the play button, the play button would light green but the transport wouldn't move. Having checked all my settings and sample rates, I turned my attention to the Master Clock and noticed it was set to 'In'. This means, it's waiting for a clock time-code signal on the audio input line to trigger playback. Since I don't have an external master clock, I set it to 'Out' making my computer the master clock.

This solved my problem and operation has been normal ever since.

thanks so much Steve. The master in vs out was the issue for me as well...Strange thing, I've been editing for over a week with no problems...Then the parameters I set up changed all on their own after logging out and back into a session in both the master settings and the sampling rates. Was really weird. I didn't catch the master settings until seeing it on your post after working for an hour myself to try to figure it out. So thanks...

I stumbled upon this exact problem; I pressed "Play", either by clicking the button or by hitting Space, and the play button itself lit up and the meters went up to the appropriate level, but there was no movement of the transport bar, nor any sound. It all looked like the whole application had freezed. What's more, it all worked just fine and then suddenly just stopped working mid-session, as in you could do maybe 10 playbacks or something like that before it all ceased working. Only by rebooting the computer I could play it back again, only for it to fail after a handful of playbacks.

A lot of entries on various forums seemed to pinpoint the audio hardware selection being wrong but it didn't make any sense as it always started out working just fine, and the selected output hadn't changed either. After reading this thread, I started thinking that Audition maybe was confusing the audio devices. See, for recording I use an external device and for mere playback I often use the internal onboard device. In addition I also have another sound card installed but which I currently don't utilize for anything, which means it shows up in the audio preferences.

So I simply deleted all the inputs and outputs in the Control Panel sound preferences that had anything to do with this additional card, as well as disabling it in the Device Manager. This forced Audition to only concentrate on the onboard sound device and what do you know, that did the trick for me. It seems that Audition is easily confused with multiple devices so my two cents here would be to disable every sound device bar the one you will use with Audition.
