Turn off audio in Premiere Pro CC
on Jan 20, 2014 at 3:58:57 am

Does anyone know how I can turn off/mute the audio in Premiere Pro without it affecting exporting audio?

I click on the "M" symbol next to the track which mutes it, but if I export it like that it doesn't export the audio.

The problem is the audio is unbearably annoying while cutting the video (I listen to stuff online while I cut footage) and if I turn it off, I have to remember to turn it back on when exporting clips, which I forget occasionally.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Well then you should maybe learn to turn the audio back on when you export? You can also turn down the master track volume but if you forget to turn that on you'll have the same problem as before.

I'm kind of wondering why I would come here seeking a possible technical solution and instead I'm sort of badgered for not having a perfect memory?

The problem isn't that I don't have a perfect memory. The problem is I have to go through the process of muting and unmuting a track constantly when it would be easier to just modify a setting in Adobe. And that my friend, is why I'm here -- to see if it exists.

Thanks for the response, I guess... >_>

Hey

DonĀ“t think there is a way. But a nice shortcut to mute/unmute or solo/unsolo is alt+tapping M or S on the timeline track

The ability to output something that isn't being monitored seems pretty risky. That being said, you can always disable the audio on any clip(s) and this will give you a very noticeable visual cue on your timeline in regards to your audio. Much more in your face than the little M button.

If you work on a PC, simple fix! I use this when capturing video in Premiere, so I can watch online videos without hearing the incoming capture audio from Premiere.

Click the little "speaker" icon at lower right of Windows and that brings up the master volume slider. Click where it says "Mixer" and that should bring up multiple sliders for all audio sources (Premiere, Web Browser, etc.) and you can then mute the unwanted source from the mix.

on the mac you can lower the system audio volume in a similar
way as jeff describes.

or if you use an external audio mixer to monitor as I do, just turn it down
all the way :)

I'm not trying to put you down. If you forget things in your workflow then you should fix your workflow so you don't forget things. It's a crappy situation when you have to explain to a customer that you forgot to enable video/audio tracks in your timeline.

There's always at least a few jackasses in every forum. I had this exact same question so thank you for asking it! It's a perfectly reasonable thing to want to do. By that guy's logic there shouldn't be a delete button or a razor tool or anything that can possibly produce unwanted results in your workflow. Which is obviously nonsense and reveals him to be an idiot, a troll or both.

Both the Shift+S and volume mixer suggestions work great for me. Thank you guys!

Shift + S disables audio in the timeline and doesn't affect export settings. So no audio while scrubbing and editing just when you actually playback the video.

Just out of curiosity, what types of video are you cutting? It seems extremely rare when it's not essential to monitor timeline audio.

For instance, cutting six 2.5-hour dance recital videos shot with 2 cameras. Don't need to hear the music, just cutting cameras for best shots.



Thanks
