mute source audio button
A simple audio mute button on the source monitor.
It's REALLY time consuming to have to turn the volume down every time I want to scan source footage with audio. If you forget, it blares noise at you and you clients. Ever shoot in a factory or loud crowd or sporting event?
I need this desperately, not muting the whole app, not disabling scrubbing audio, not turning down all my clips audio, just... simply... muting the source panel audio ONLY! Dear lord why can't adobe do this, how many years have customers been requesting this?!!!

Have you ever heard timecode blasting through your ears? Would be nice to have "Audio Channels" button in source monitor so you could mute (Tentacle Sync) timecode written on one of the two stereo channels. Would def. increase ease of use while going through dailies and drag 'n drop on the timeline.

Love it. Big customer request.

There is no mute button in the Source Panel, but the Audio Clip Mixer does have a mute button, and a volume control that works in conjunction with the Source Panel.

Shift+S does do the trick while you are scrubbing, but this seems so easy to just add a 'Mute Source' button, Adobe. A very common issue that we all share should be something taken care of in much shorter order than 3 years..

This idea was shared in 2018??? Come on its only a button just add it please...

It's been 2 years and Adobe still doesn't understand the basic things to make users happy.
Davinci Resolve has its own mute button for muting source preview and it is not an exclusive editing software like Premiere Pro. I am not even saying that Resolve has a free edition. Shame on you Adobe...

This would be amazingly helpful when I must pick out B-roll and music at the same time. Such a simple thing too. Get on this Adobe.

Adobe sucks and and seem to not be human, but AI. Fix the easy stuff you idiots!
Add a **** MUTE button on the source side...
Amongst a bunch of other stuff, but how **** easy is this!!! Do it!
"Shift S" turns on & off Audio scrubbing. That will mute it in the source window and the timeline.

+1, this is such a basic Quality Of Life issue that could be solved with a simple mute button on the source monitor.

Please put a mute button on the source file viewer window. Often I'm looking through b-roll with mics set at various levels in various situations where footage can be extremely noisy. It slows the editing process having either having to turn down footage gain or adjusting the output audio.
Daniel Haack commented
While making b-roll selects I'd rather not have the audio scrubbing at the same time, a mute button on the source window would solve this problem without having to change global settings. Thanks!

Bump to get this done on Mac so music can be listened to while scrubbing footage
Right click on the Speakers Icon bottom right of your PC, select 'Open Volume Mixer' - and turn down the volume for Premiere pro whilst still keeping up the volume for spotify. You're welcome.

Agreed, it seems like such a basic function. I've resorted to muting the whole computer & listening to music on headphones via my phone.
Steven Pritchard commented
Add me to this list. Continually turning down the volume on the source footage is driving me carzy

It would be so nice to be able to mute the source monitor when logging footage.
