    While working on a project, I suddenly lost master audio metering. I can still the levels on the track header.

    Is there a quick key on the keyboard I may have inadvertently pressed.

    If you mean that the main audio bus fader is no longer visible, try the menu item View | Mixer (Alt+3).

    I meant to say I can SEE the levels. 🙂

    John, I didn\’t lose the window. I can still see both the master and the preview VU meters, but there is no visual level present when I play out my project. On the track header (the little box to the left of each track with controls – not sure if \\\”header\\\” is its name), the VU meter works fine.

    John – never mind. It’s back now.

    Last night I attempted a fix by restarting Vegas but I did not try to restart the PC as well. This morning it works after a fresh boot.

    Just hoping there’s not a keyboard shortcut to mute or disable the master output that I may inadvertently push again . . .

    I can’t imagine what caused this. No keystrokes that I know of would turn off the meters on the master audio bus. Glad you got it to work with a reboot.

    The same thing happened to me on Vegas 12. Rebooted it and now it recognizes the audio levels on my timeline. Maybe it’s just a glitch?

    Same odd thing just happened to me. Right before the levels on the upper right side audio stopped moving, I had been fiddling with the little red gear that has “Touch” next to it on the Audio Track controls. The levels still move on that little control panel, just not on the main Audio. Also, an odd “Master” thingie appeared above the levels, and the volume knob on the main audio changed in appearance, and there is no longer a little lock icon below it to click to separate the L & R tracks. See below.

    This is some kind of a “feature” – reminds me of the FX on/off preview thing that is so maddening.

    Well, After clicking madly on everything with no effect (embarrassing to admit this, not what pilots are trained to do …), I gave up and exited SVP12 and then restarted SVP12. Levels are back.

    Bug?

    Anyway, left it rendering and am going to bed!

    It looks like you turned on automation and told it to latch to the automation envelope but you didn’t have an automation envelope so it did noting. Not a bug… operator error. Vegas was doing what you told it to. All you needed to do was turn automation off.

    Thanks John, I figured as much. Right now I’m doing another render and I don’t want to fire up another instance of Vegas to play with automation. But I can’t figure out – how do I turn it off?
