Source Monitor (See Video and waveform at the sametime)
When editing TV, Reality, Digital, even social, it can be more useful to edit by looking at the wave forms, and can be faster to find the point in a shot where dialogue starts and stops, instead of just sliding and hunting for the moment, and miss a soundbite. BUT it's also hard to catch a mciro reaction in the footage when you're only putting in and outs via the waveforms, so to be able to have both visible at the same time AND being able to choose to link the controls or separate them or link them would save a lot of time.

This would be very useful.

Another option that it's almost unbelievable isn't already a feature... please implement asap!
Matt Baume commented
It's really bizarre that this isn't an option! The best option I've found so far is to click the wrench icon and switch to the waveform view in the source window ... but of course that means I still can't see audio and video at the same time, as is possible in FCPX.

Please add this!!
FRANCOIS MENARD commented
How is this not done yet? Come on Adobe...
Spectrum Production commented
OMG guys, when are you adding this - editing documentary without this and using markers is so painful!!
Perry Childs commented
Coming from FCPX where it's a simple tick of a box to view both vision & waveforms, I really can't believe this isn't a feature here. Please add.
Jonas Helmersson commented
This is what I've been needing the whole autumn, please add this feature!
Evan Scales commented
Yes! This would be fantastic.
Alfred Zanini commented
Totally agree! This should definitely be a feature
Yes! An audio waveform overlay would be tremendously helpful!!
Jan Carlo Tagudin commented
i was searching if there's a tutorial how to do this, i guess it's not yet possible with premiere pro. i hope they add it soon.
WOULD BE A BIG HELP!
YES please add this feature - so often it's easier to finetune the in point by the audio waveforms when you have found the area you want to use in the video section - but if you only see the audio (by easily switching over) - you may get lost and find yourself in the wrong part of the video....... Also - if you are marking by audio and have many takes - you want to see the video to choose the actual great take.

Exactly, please do add this. In my footage I sometimes say things which indicate how it should be edited or which shot is the best and I need to be able to listen to these notes and judge the footage whilst editing simultaneously
Yes! Resolve has this and it's awesome.
Tip in case you didn't know - if you click the "video only" or "audio only" buttons that are normally used to drag audio/video into the timeline, it will switch the source monitor between the picture or the waveform. Not a final solution but quicker than opening the menu to choose
