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?

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.

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.

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.
Yes please. The workarounds make no sense. I don't want to change the audio gain of all of my clips, I just want to be able to mute the source monitor.
Right click on the clips in the bin --> modify --> audio channels and de-click all channels --> do your work and repeat the process to edit with sound.
It works but a simple "mute all button" within the button editor would be awesome!
Bump for the master mute!
+ 1 on this one. And the fact that one listens to external music, videos or even watch adobe-tutorials ( ;) ) when editing… like setting in and outs, sorting clips etc.
TaranVH:s workaround is not an solid option. I have allot of clips loaded and it (audio gain) struggles when it comes to generating peak which in return results in "Ok" button greyed out.
You can select items in a bin, and hit the shortcut for "audio gain" (G by default)
Choose a lower volume, hit ENTER, and ta daaaaa!!! The change will affect all the selected items. Much quieter. You'll still probably have to change the gain once you put it in your project, anyway. So this doesn't waste time later.
You can also apply effects, master clip effects, and use the "modify clip" dialogue box for multiple selected items in a bin.
YEAH, JUST DROPPED SOME KNOWLEDGE ON YOU!!
