Stop loud audio glitches when scrubbing timeline
This has been a problem for years for my team and I. It doesn't happen every day, and it there doesn't seem to be a definite cause. We use all sorts of different media when editing, but there does not seem to be a correlation. We use Macs, so perhaps it only an issue with Apple products.
The issue is sometimes when we scrub through the timeline, Premiere will make a VERY loud static audio glitch that scares the **** out of you, and frankly, hurts your ears. It doesn't matter how loud the audio on your computer is, the static glitch is EXTREMELY loud. I've seen posts about this previously from others for years, and there's never been a solution.
PLEASE FIX. I actually like my hearing and would prefer not to lose it because I'm editing in Premiere.
I've been able to consistently replicate it by just scrubbing at 2x speed. Doesn't seem to manifest any other way.

This happened to me just adding a reverb effect to a clip. I'm wearing headphone monitors and editing on a macbook pro. My ears are still ringing. WTF Adobe, this is literally dangerous!
I am able to recreate this problem reliably.
1) Bring audio clip into timeline
2) Right-click on the clip and select Audio Channels
3) Make a change in the Channels. Any change. Press OK
4) Right-click on the clip and select Audio Gain
5) Make a change in the Gain. Any change. Press OK
6) Add a transition to the audio clip
When this is played back, the super loud distortion happens. If the Audio channels aren't altered, this does not happen. And we use the Audio channels a LOT here.
Please address this.

OMG YES! Please people up-vote this. For me the issue is anytime I have an EQ or compressor applied directly to a clip and not on the track. Any scrubbing or cutting on the fly will cause distortion and clipping that could damage your hearing.
