Long shot but...you don't have any network drives in use do you? All local drives?
Correct, I don't have any network drives, only my FW 800 drive, which contains the projects scratch disk. All media resides on this drive with the project file.
I'll give that a try here, the report is basically saying what you are seeing. What's interesting is the project is using the mono version (1) of the effects. These are 'internal' VST effects. What type of clips are the audio effects applied to? In particular I'm interested in knowing about the format, is it mono streams? Was the project converted from an FCP (or other) project type? Anything you can mention to help repro the issue would be awesome.
I actually have a new problem now.
Almost everytime I open Premiere CS6 it immediately crashes.
The only thing I did that I have never done before was import this project as an XML from Final Cut.
Here is what Final Cut says about the audio files I am applying the effects to
So right now I can't even open the project without Premiere crashing. I have CS5.5 installed, could that have anything to do with it?
No, having CS5.5 is independent from CS6 - they can coexist on the same computer without interference. Are you scrubbing the timeline where one of the missing audio effects is when the shutdown message happens? I'm curious if they are related. Any chance you can post your project (.prproj, no media) someplace so we can see what's going wrong?
Hopefully this link will work.
This crash seems to be kind of random. It happened once when copying an audio effect from the left channel to the right channel, once when using magic bullet looks, and several times when first starting up, without me actually doing anything.
Thanks! - I have the project and that's really helpful - one thing to try - doing a copy of the effect puts data onto the system clipboard, if you go to say, notepad, and select anything and copy it, then do your test again, do things work again? I'm thinking there might be something residual on the system clipboard.
I closed out Premiere and tried copying and pasting inside notepad, but I got the same notice relaunching the project.
Here is what the effect panel looks like for the clip with the effect applied.
This is a bummer because the DeNoiser works WONDERFULLY. I had pretty good headphones on and was able to get rid of all background noise without any vocal distortion.
Something else I noticed, is that at some point between bringing over the project XML and reopening just now (and between about 5 crashes), the transitional effects on all clips went away. Also, every piece of audio that was linked became unlinked.
I managed to grab a SS when transitions and links were present.
And taken just now.
This is all very confusing because some of it seems to be unpredictable. I didn't delete the transitions, nor unlink the files. I'm gad I have your attention though, hopefully we can sort this out.
Woops, the unlinking/transitions thing is my bad. I had forgotten that I had created a new sequence to try and match the ProRes settings of the clips (the sequence created with the xml used some kind of MPEG instead of quicktime/ProRes). I just copied everything to the new sequence, and apparently transitions and linking don't carry over.
Okay here is an update.
I created a test project from scratch rather than XML from final cut. Added a clip and some audio and applied the audio filters. Saved. Reopened, and everything reloaded properly.
Perhaps the issue here is with the way the xml transferred from final cut? It's the first time I had done anything like that, so maybe I just didn't do it properly (although it seemed pretty straightforward).
Not sure what was causing the crashes, but I haven't see anything else about CS6 crashing as much as it was for me, maybe again this was related to an XML error.
I'm having exactly the same problem with a project in CS6. Never saw this in CS5.5. The program crashed and next time I opened it got the "audio filter missing" message for every audio effect I had applied. When I reapply the audio filter, then save and close, it is once again missing when I reopen the program.
Mac OSX 10.7.4
Mac Pro 3,1
Project files stored on separate drive from program.
Looks like my problem is also related to XML import. I've been using PluralEyes to sync audio with video. The process requires exporting a FCP XML file generated by Premiere to PluralEyes, processing to sync, then importing the resulting XML file. Everything works great except that applying audio filters to any audio file imported as part of the XML process generates the "audio filter missing" message and cannot be successfully rendered.
Audio filters CAN be applied successfully to audio files within the same project, provided the audio files were not imported via XML.
Definitely XML, because when I recreated the project in Premiere without XML everything worked fine. Hopefully they find a fix for this though, as im sure not everyone can afford to recreate their FCP projects in Premiere!!
does anyone have any news on this or any other workarounds? i'm also on the trial & thinking of a subscription and liking a fair amount of my experience with Premiere Pro, but this is really no good.
I just spoke to support today and they are obviously aware of it and still working on it.
I did notice that when you create a sequence to export to XML for pluraleyes that my audio comes in as a stereo track. When I import the new XML back into premiere it appears that pluraleyes has seperated them out to dual mono tracks. Can anyone confirm that this plays a part in the issue?
Any news on this? I have the same problem (applied VST audio fx dissapear after save/re-open). PPro CS 6 (no trial). My audio also went the XML path (PluralEyes), so it's obviously related to XML. Latest updates didn't help.
i got this from singular support (now red giant?) awhile ago, don't know about the Adobe end:
We reproduced the problem here too and are trying to find solutions to workaround the issue. If you are working with dual-system audio, the following workaround works:
1. Sync the sequence with the Replaced Audio sync option
2. In the "Replaced" sequence in Premiere, right-click on a clip with the replaced audio and select Merge Clips...
3. Drag and drop the newly created merged clips from the project panel into the timeline
thanks for the hint, but this workaround won't help me. First of all I already synced and cut the sequence, so I can't go back now. Furthermore I need to keep the audio indepentendtly in my workflow, so "Replace Audio" in PluralEyes wouldn't be a viable option.
So I still have to wait for a fix inside of Premiere Pro...
I am getting the same problem with the dynamics filter, but I built the project in Premiere. Whenever I open the project I get the "missing" error message and I have to reaply the filter - very annoying
Any news on a fix??
Most of the work we do with talking heads requires PluralEyes and XML imports, like David we often need the other audio tracks as well as the sync'd audio. But just wanted to say thanks to all the contribuitors above as this thread was easy to read and pinpointed our problem. However of course we still need that patch update to be able to work effectively. Just a note of interest is I've never seen this error when working from start to final render in one go, i.e. saving the project as it is built but never actually closing and reopening Premiere. It's only on the re-open that the audio filter errors become apparant. Also we're still using the PluralEyes 2 (i.e. the one before the latest version), just incase someone has tried version 3 and no longer finds this error?
I'm using Premiere CS6 and PluralEyes 3 and I can confirm that this issue is still present - I started my workflow in Premiere, importing all media into a timeline, and using the extension to bring the project into PE3. I exported a synced (but not replaced) timeline out of PE3 and brought it into Premiere.
I edited the project and didn't add a dynamics filter until the very end. After a save, close and reopen, the error comes up that the filters are unavailable, and in the effects panel they are offline.
Try launching Pr while holding down the Shift key. Keep it pressed until the welcome screen appears. That clears the plug-in cache.
I tried holding shift+starting Premiere mutiple times, including after a restart, audio effect (dynamics) still unavailable.
As per the discussion about the XML issue, I see that when I import the new synced XML into Premiere from PE3, a new folder with the media is placed in the project panel instead of the original media that I placed for step 1. So there are two copies of the same media essentially.
I am now going through the tedious process of replacing the 'synced' media with the original - which is proving extra difficult, because the options "replace with clip from source" and "replace with clip from source; match frame" aren't giving me the right portions of the audio clips.
I even tried to look at the timecode of my synced audio clips, copying that and inputting that TC into the original source audio files, to make the in and out points match, but for some reason that brings the playhead to a segment a few seconds off from the synced clips.
I would have saved more time not using PE3. Rage.
I don't have this problem any more - I can't remember when it diappeared but I'm currently on Premiere Pro 6.0.2 and Plural Eyes 2.0.9 and it works fine with remembering audio filters
I have experienced this problem several times with Premiere Pro CS6 and PluralEyes 3.0 for Windows.
The problem is simple: when you apply an audio effect to a track that was synced by PluralEyes, Premiere Pro gets confused about whether the track is mono or stereo. Premiere Pro applies the effect properly, but when it saves this effect in its project file, it writes the incorrect filter name.
Then when you restart Premiere Pro, it reads the project file, extracts the incorrect filter name, and complains about the "missing" filter.
The solution is simple: just edit the Premiere Pro project file (which is in XML format) to contain the correct filter name. For example, when I added the Lowpass and Bass effects to a PluralEyes audio track, Premiere Pro wrote these to the project file:
<FilterMatchName>Internal Lowpass Mono</FilterMatchName>
<FilterMatchName>Internal Bass Mono</FilterMatchName>
When I changed those from "Mono" to Stereo with a text editor, then reloaded Premiere Pro, it solved my problem:
<FilterMatchName>Internal Lowpass Stereo</FilterMatchName>
<FilterMatchName>Internal Bass Stereo</FilterMatchName>
The trick, of course, was in discovering the correct names for these effects. To do that, I:
- Created a new Premiere Pro CS6 project
- Imported the audio track in question
- Dropped it into a sequence
- Applied the audio effect(s) in question
- Saved the project
- Opened the Premiere Pro project file (which ends in ".prproj") in a text editor
- Searched for the effect name (e.g., 'Lowpass" or "Bass")
The filter names are not always this predictible; for example, when Premiere Pro wrote "<FilterMatchName>1095782705 EQ1</FilterMatchName>", it really meant "<FilterMatchName>1095782706 EQ2</FilterMatchName>". And when it wrote "<FilterMatchName>1094998321 Dynamics1</FilterMatchName>", it really meant "<FilterMatchName>1094998322 Dynamics2</FilterMatchName>".
Has anyone found a fix for this yet? I haven't used pluraleyes on this project so it can't be that. I tried your method InterMurph with the "Internal Bass Mono" (all14 instances) and Dynamics1 and it changed from this:
Seems like it made the Dynamics one worse and did nothing for the Internal Bass Mono/Stereo!
I spent almost two hours chatting with technical support, let them have control of the desktop and they came up with nothing after telling me that i had to just start again! (Transcript down the bottom) They said it was project specific but my argument was that it happens on all projects when i apply these filters. Plus this page shows that there are others having this issue. I had this issue a while ago with video filters from magic bullet suite but i thought it was because i was opening the project on a computer which didn't have MBS installed so it made sense.
The tech then called me to repeat that he couldnt help further and asked if i wanted to escalate it to another tech, so im waiting on them calling me back now. lll let you know how i get on...
also just looking in preferences in premiere the audio section, i went into Audio Plugin Manager and saw this:
The offending plugins arent there. Also when i check both folders in the locations suggested they are comlpletely empty....thoughts here?

"TECH1": May I please know you are referring to which product?
Sai Kelly: oh sorry! Premiere Pro CC
Sai Kelly: i subscribe to creative cloud so i use After effects and audition etc
Sai Kelly: I'm experiencing a lot of crashing when applying audio filters and looping the sound while i change parameters
"TECH1": I see that this is a technical issue. I'll need to transfer this chat to the technical support team so that this issue is resolved in this first contact itself.
"TECH1": Please stay online while I transfer this chat.
Sai Kelly: ok thanks!
"TECH1": You are welcome.

Sai Kelly: i use Premiere Pro CC i subscribe to creative cloud so i use After effects and audition etc I'm experiencing a lot of crashing when applying audio filters and looping the sound while i change parameters
"TECH2": Do you mean After Effects crashes with this error?
Sai Kelly: no premiere pro starts up with this warning
"TECH2": are you using any 3rd party effects?
Sai Kelly: i have magic bullet looks installed at the moment
"TECH2": and when does after effects crashes on launch or while doing any specific task?
Sai Kelly: its premiere that crashes
Sai Kelly: yes when doing specific tasks
Sai Kelly: like when applying audio filters and looping the sound while i change parameters
"TECH2": give me 2-3 minutes to check this
Sai Kelly: great thanks.
"TECH2": you are welcome
"TECH2": please stay online
Sai Kelly: thanks will do!
Sai Kelly: i think its most likely linked to this Audio Filter missing: 1094998321 Dynamics1 Audio Filter missing: 1095781937 DeNoiser1 Audio Filter missing: Internal Bass Mono
Sai Kelly: on start up
"TECH2": Can you try to disable or remove magic bullets from the machine and then check if it crashes?
Sai Kelly: The missing audio filters are missing regardless of Magic Bullet being there because it happens on other computers and they don't have Magic Bullet installed.
"TECH2": are you on mac or pc?
Sai Kelly: mac
"TECH2": Is it mac 10.9?
Sai Kelly: 10.8.5
"TECH2": Would you like to share your computer screen so I can have view access to what you are seeing?
Sai Kelly: sure
"TECH2": install this
Sai Kelly: ok one
Sai Kelly: done
Sai Kelly: ID XXX XXX XXX
"TECH2": give me the ID and password generated
Sai Kelly: P : XXXX
Sai Kelly: do you want me to open the project?
"TECH2": please allow me the control (he opens the project and exports an XML of the entire lot)
"TECH2": check now
Sai Kelly: there it is (i reopen the same project and the warning came up)
"TECH2": make a new project and import this xml in that
Sai Kelly: ok
Sai Kelly: ok
"TECH2": does that work? (it does work, no warning)
Sai Kelly: it has reset most of the filters
Sai Kelly: most of the work has been undone (all the work i had done applying video and audio filters colour grading etc had been undone)
"TECH2": yes that is because that was a project specific issue some filters that you have applied on the project are conflicting with the application and it may damage the project as well
Sai Kelly: ok well i can't go back to this stage though that is weeks of work lost and i don't have the time.
Sai Kelly: and surely when i reapply the filters it will just happen again
Sai Kelly: ?
"TECH2": Can you reopen your old project and make a new sequence in that and copy and paste the old sequence to the new one and see if that works
Sai Kelly: i can
"TECH2": go ahead please
Sai Kelly: ok all done
Sai Kelly: quit and reopen?
Sai Kelly: or apply filters first
Sai Kelly: you can see there in a clip's effects controls that the filter has been applied previously to now 4 times and is 'offline'.
"TECH2": yes I can see
"TECH2": Please allow me 2-3 more minutes
Sai Kelly: no problem ill put the kettle on
Sai Kelly: tea?
Sai Kelly: sorry i hope that didn't sound rude! i am actually making tea lol
"TECH2": Can you check if after clicking ok on the warning are the filters missing?
Sai Kelly: yes i can see them missing in the effects controls still
"TECH2": Can you close and reopen the project?
Sai Kelly: sure thing
Sai Kelly: there you go.
"TECH2": have you used plural eyes to sync the audio?
Sai Kelly: no
"TECH2": what I have done is I have saved an offline project and now we would try to open that and relink media
"TECH2": it does not works
"TECH2": Well unfortunately in this case you would need to redo the filters that you had applied
Sai Kelly: If redo them they still disappear. you can see in the last project that a filter was applied 4 times and still disappears when you quit and reopen
"TECH2": Well you would have to do that in the new project that we have created using XML
Sai Kelly: i already said that i don't have time to go back and do that
Sai Kelly: that was weeks of work
Sai Kelly: have you read about the workaround that some people posted in the forums?
Sai Kelly: Some folks talked about editing the project file in a text editor and changing certain parameters?
Sai Kelly: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4495817 (this page)
"TECH2": Well but we can't help in that
"TECH2": If you want you can try that
Sai Kelly: does it work? (referring to post 25 by InterMurph)
Sai Kelly: will it damage the project file?
"TECH2": Well save a copy of the project and then try
Sai Kelly: is it as simple as opening in text wrangler, searching for the audio filters and changing them?
Sai Kelly: /Users/Saiko/Desktop/Screen Shot 2014-02-12 at 13.40.15.png
"TECH2": Sai unfortunately this is a project specific issue so we can't do much more in this case, so you can try the suggestions which are there in forums but we can't assure if that will work or will not work
Sai Kelly: it seems to be a common problem if you read the amount of reports that are available in your forums particularly that page i sent you.
Sai Kelly: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4495817
"TECH2": but that happens if you have any 3rd party plugins installed on the machine and are project specific
"TECH2": Chat / Phone support do not give assistance for project specific issues
Sai Kelly: It isn't project specific when there are more people than me having the issue and i already stated that this was independent of the 3rd party plugin as the other machine i work on doesn't have any installed but he gets this issue.
"TECH2": Does this happens on all your projects?
Sai Kelly: it has happened on others yes
"TECH2": Does it happens only if you apply filters?
Sai Kelly: yes
"TECH2": Well than this is a project specific issue, and we can't do anything more on this, you would need to redo the work. I understand the pain and time it will take but that is the last option
Sai Kelly: can you explain what you mean by project specific?
"TECH2": Well project specific means if the error is coming on only a project or some projects and not all the projects that you have
Sai Kelly: if i confirm that it happens on all projects does that make a difference?
"TECH2": Do you have projects to show that?
Sai Kelly: yes lots
"TECH2": Well but still we can't do anything on this
Sai Kelly: Ok, does this not mean that the software has the issue? not the project?
"TECH2": the issue is with the project
Sai Kelly: how can it be with the project if it is all projects and other people's projects unrelated to me?
Sai Kelly: did you manage to look at the page i sent you from Adobe's forum? its not just my project.
