BUG: Generating keyframes for audio ducking freezes premiere
Steps to Reproduce Bug:
1. Set my music clip as audio track from Essential Sound panel.
2. Hit auto-match and then enable ducking on dialog clips.
3. Hit generate keyframes.
Premiere freezes forever. Only solution is to kill the app from the task manager.
To work as intended.

This is still happening for me 5.11.21...running version 15.2 Any updated fixes?
I'm attempting to duck a 2 min music clip against some basic dialog. The system has crashed 4 times. Now it has been "Generating Keyframes" for 20 mins. Used to work in just a few seconds!

Hi, I'm not seeing anything like what you describe? Could you post a project for me to examine that shows this? If you would like, I could also do a phone call with a screen share so I can examine your issue.

I am having the same issue on Nov 30, 2020!
So frustrating. I have spent hours trying to get this to work.
I seem to have better luck by selecting each music file, and then applying the ducking by generating keyframes. Even smaller 1 or two minute sections of audio are taking a REALLY long time to duck, and I have a pretty fast system.
But there are some files which are not showing any results. I am thinking of leaving this overnight to see if it works.
C'mon Adobe get this thing working properly again?!

11/11/20 and this bug`s still existing, PrPro crashes every single time I use essential sounds for ducking, no matter what I do, tried out everything suggested here and nothing works so *******, I just use Fruity Loops or Reaper for my audio and go the extra mile
Weird, I'm running Premiere Pro 13.0 but I was having this issue (crashing, not freezing). Adam's suggestion worked, though. Just change render to software only in project general settings and I can generate keyframes fine. Once I was done, I simply changed the render setting back.

This issue should be addressed in the Premiere Pro 12.1.2 update that was just released.

Instead of selecting several music clips / cuts. Try ducking using single music clip / cut at a time. It was freezing for me in the beginning when i tried to use ducking on two music cuts in same track, now problem solved!!
I wish adobe to make Ducking work even when multiple music clips are selected

Thank you for the reports. This is an issue under investigation and while I cannot give an ETA, hopefully this will be fixed soon.

I am seeing the same problem. Premiere Pro 12.1.1 build 10 on Macbook Pro running MacOS 10.13.5
Loaded an MP4 video with dialog (V1 / A1). Dropped in WAV file with additional dialog (A2)
Added background music (A3).
Selected the Audio workspace and the music track. Checked "Ducking", selected to duck against everything.
Clicked Generate Keyframes, them Premiere Pro hangs indefinitely.
I have to kill the non-responsive process.
Same here. Mac 10.12.6. Latest APP CC
Crashes every time.
Only a 1:20 soundtrack but will try breaking it up.
same thing here... this EDL just keeps on getting worst... I'm constantly asking myself why don't I just go back to FCP

I'd add, that it is more likly to happen, when an audiotransition is applied to the the clips auto duicking is dedicated to.
I just chatted and screen shared with Adobe and the "fix" was to set my renderer to software only and set the audio hardware to Built In Output. The agent wouldn't even admit it was a bug. Adobe YOU BETTER FIX THIS!
I have the same issue. This is definitely a bug.
