Allow Audio Nesting
Currently audio will not nest. According to forums this is not a feature. Please enable audio nesting.

No, the workarounds suggested here don't work for me. I am using Premiere Pro 2022 (version 22.3.1). The created nested sequence if you open it, does contain the audio files as epxected but the original sequence will NOT display a single nested audio sequence as it does for the video tracks.
The workaround doesn't work for me as in if I go into the created Nested sequence that contains the audio, delete the video, so now I have a single nested sequence that just contains the audio clips. When I drag the nested sequence back onto the original sequence the original stack of audio clips displays on the original sequence, not a single nested clip containing the nested audio.
Lastly nested Video clips don't play in my program monitor, so I can't even play back the video files without audio. I think nesting in general needs a lot of work.

As a musician and videographer, this feature is absolutely essential. It's unbelievable to me that it's still not implemented as I would consider this basic functionality for a video editing suite. Similarly, video clips with multiple associated audio tracks should all be able to nest as one.

A workaround. I duplicated my sequence, called it audio nest, them deleted all the video from that and placed the audio in the video sequence timeline. Essentially a cumbersome form of nesting.
People have used the term "unprofessional" about Adobe's priorities and I've been saying that for years. The CS package you get for the annul fee is amazing, but the support and product, in many ways, is not Pro level and that's too bad.
How can we not have a true garbage matte effect with spline-able keyframes? Ballistics, soft edges or keyframes on wipes? Dissolves that go fro 0 to 100 rather than 20 to 80 then jump? To name just a few.
All these things have been standard in other editing packages for decades and repeatedly requested. Adobe has failed to address them so far. C'mon Adobe. Listen to the community. These would make the day to day use much more editor friendly.

Please please please allow us to nest audio! I have 4 cameras with 24 tracks of audio and have to keep all of the audio. Cut this sequences is insane. Please help!
Jeffrey Campbell commented
Multiple audio tracks have nested for years.
It just looks like they don't. If you nest several clips, then go into the created sequence, all the audio clips are there. For some reason, though, Premiere doesn't create the nested sequence audio track when it does this.
They nest, but have to be on different tracks. So they do, but they don't.

Add audio nesting. Also allow the ability to select multiple audio key frames across clips on several tracks by lassoing. I work mainly in Avid for the networks— and not having these features in premiere certainly makes it “un pro”

Still doesn't work, there is a workaround (already mentioned by Sven Brencher):
> Audio is nested but it will not replace the Audio in the Sequence if there are clips on multiple tracks selected. So you have to drag in the Nested Sequence again to have the nested Audio as well.
Eduardo Asta commented
Why does have a nest feature if you can't add audio? Why?

You can nest audio clips. Simply select your clips and right click, then click "nest." Depending on the arrangement of the clips, the "nest" feature may not be available, in which case, simply create a new sequence, copy and paste your audio clips into that sequence, then drag the sequence into your timeline.
Tyler Hanson commented
This is crazy to me that this isn't "possible" natively.
Typical Use cases:
- Creating a sub-edit for a group of specific audio in a scene that you don't want mastered (from dB to effects)
- Looping a music track that is STEM'd

+1 for audio nesting.

Greetings Fellow editors,
I developed new extension: EXCALIBUR. It has "Nest Clips" command, which allows nesting of audio clips (it also moves created nest to Nested Clips bin).
And you can assign shortcut to this command.
But it does much more than that, learn more here:

December 2020 and still no sign Audio nesting !!! RIDICULOUS!!! Why do we pay if they can't give us what we want as well?

"you can apply audio plug-ins to entire tracks".
You can do this in Premiere and have been able to for years. Open the Audio Track Mixer panel, in the upper left there is a twirldown, open it. That exposes the Track inserts and sends area. In the inserts section click on the dropdown and select the effect you want to apply to the entire track.
Does this help or are you talking about something different?

Trying to apply a reverb to multiple effects. The best way to do this in a video editing software is to nest those effects as to be able to apply a continuous effect. Final Cut Pro 4 could do this in 2003. It was incredibly useful. Why am I pining for the utility of a 17-year-old software? In Avid Media Composer, as archaic as it remains, you can apply audio plug-ins to entire tracks. That's one step away from the automation capabilities as Pro Tools.

I just got this working with Adobe Premiere Pro v14.1.0. Every time I dragged the "nested" sequence to my main sequence it would only bring the video with it. The problem was that I didn't have any "source patching" selected for the audio, after selecting both "V1" and "A1" as the source patching, then dragging the nested sequence where I wanted it, the audio came with it!! Now any changes to the video OR audio within the nested sequence is brought into the parent sequence...woohoo!
2020 and still nothing. My workaround is to nest the section, then cmd-x cut the audio from the main timeline and bring the nest back into the comp. A ridiculous and annoying thing to have to do. I can't understand why Adobe are so reluctant to put in basic functionality into their software. I am so beyond sick of paying for CC at this point. Davinci does everything and Blender listens to their community.

It's 2020, still not available. I don't understand it cuz if you include video in the clip you select, it nests fine. My workaround is to grab random video, create the nest, then disable the video in the nested comp. Still, why need this workaround?
