Premiere Pro 2019 audio gain adjustments either don't work or take forever.
Ever since the 2019 update, when adjusting the gain of clips, it sits in "calculating" forever and then regardless of what gain adjustment numbers are entered, it always calculates peak amplitude as zero.

how do i reduce audio volume on premier pro
Im still having trouble, both with the gain wait and the time it takes the audio file to conform on the timeline. This is only a new problem since PP2019 and I am loading files from my main drives, not external. Did anyone find out what the problem was or a solution that doesnt require me to go to audition?
hi everybody, i've got the same issue and i replaced the whole audio and edited it in adobe audition where things can be done pretty easy! a quick workaround although i would prefer that the audio gain would work es always in premiere

I tried this a hundred times and it kept messing with me.
Finally, I realized it works much quicker if I have the clips on a local drive as opposed to an external drive.
I would suggest putting source clips or your entire project folder into the documents folder.
This solved the problem for me.
Also, I noticed that when editing 4K timelines everything works much quicker with this process.
Of course, I have to move these folders back to the external drive when I'm done with them but it does make the actually editing quite a bit faster.

There was a recent change that cleaned up the gain dialog. Now, when calculating the peak values for a long piece of audio, you couldn't enter gain values and hit the OK button. That has been changed so that you can change the gain and hit OK while the application is calculating the Peak values.
Anyone found a solution?
Are you all working off of a hard drive? I was as well, then transferred my files to desktop to render and I was able to change audio gain easily.
This is happening to me as well with Version 13. Is there a fix? I'm editing a music documentary and this is unacceptable.

I lay down a15 min FS7 clip with only 2 out of 8 audio tracks turned on in the interpret> audio menu
Then put into sequence and Generate Audio Waveforms from clip menu - takes 5-10min
Then press G on clip, for Gain menu
If I type some number of gain in - say 8 - it will take MUCH longer to 'calculate' than if I just leave that blank and wait until calculating is finished. Im talking like 5 minutes (or never finishing) vs. 20 seconds
Now that's a bug
Does anyone have a solution to this? ADOBE?!
I'm in the same boat. This is awful.
Yep, this is ridiculous. HELP!
this is driving me crazy too, is there a workaround?
