"effect not found," effect pre-sets not loaded

I'm a happy user of Audition 5.5.


Today, when loading a session file created for me by a user of Audition CC, I got the following error message: "1 of the 5 effects referenced by the file could not be found: Single-band Compressor."  Also, the presets that were in the session file didn't load into the effects rack.


(The Single-Band Compressor is an effect available to me under Effects>Amplitude and Compression.)


Any help would be appreciated!

    Since Audition CC is quite a considerable advance on CS 5.5 there are quite a few changes to the way session files are written which makes them not fully backward compatible with earlier versions of Audition I suspect.

    The bulk of the session should be backwards compatible, but some effects from newer releases will not load in earlier versions, as you've noted.  For compatible effects, you should see the correct parameter values, though the preset name used will not be displayed.  (Presets are a trigger to adjust parameter values, not stored as a parameter itself.)
