You need system specs for a software menu problem? Ok, I'll play.
- What version of Premiere Pro? Include the minor version number (e.g., Premiere Pro CS5.5 with the 5.5.2 update).
- As mentioned above, Premiere Pro CC.
- Have you installed the recent updates? (If not, you should. They fix a lot of problems.)
- Everything available through AAM has been installed.
- What operating system? This should include specific minor version numbers, like "Mac OSX v10.6.8"---not just "Mac".
- Windows 8
- What kind(s) of source footage? When telling about your source footage, tell us about the codecs, not just the container types. For example, "H.264 in a .mov container", not just "QuickTime".
- WAV file.
- If you are getting error message(s), what is the full text of the error message(s)?
- As mentioned above, no error message. The option is greyed out in the menu.
- What were you doing when the problem occurred?
- As mentioned above, I was right-clicking the WAV file clip in the PPro CC timeline.
- Has this ever worked before?
- Not in PPro CC, since PPro CC was just installed today. It worked perfectly fine in PPro CS6.
- What other software are you running?
- No software other than background processes, and none of those interfered with the availability of this option in PPro CS6.
- Do you have any third-party effects or codecs installed?
- TechSmith codecs from Camtasia.
- Tell us about your computer hardware. Be especially certain to tell us about third-party I/O hardware (e.g., AJA, Matrox, Blackmagic, MOTU).
- i7-990x, 24GB RAM, SSD drives, nVidia 680GTX, Soundblaster Titanium.
- Are you using Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration?
- Does the problem only happen with your final output, with previews, or both?
- Not applicable.
i appreciate your prompt response to all the questions.
It's working fine at my end with a wav file. Are you able to reproduce this with multiple wav files?
What is the source of those wav clips.
I can repro it with all of my audio files. WAV files, audio tracks from video files, etc.
Many sources - H4N Digital Recorder, Nikon D800/D4 cameras, Canon 7D, etc.
The underlying mechanism for enabling that menu option, checks if Audition is installed. The crude way Premiere checks if Audition is installed is that it checks the Windows registry for whichever application is registered to handle the file extension *.sesx or *.ses (in the case of Audition 3 and before). If it can't find that, it will disable the menu command.
So if you have a .sesx file from Audition, and you double-click on it, does it Actually launch Audition?
I have the same problem with CS6, the edit clip in adobe audition is greyed out. Worked fine with CS5.5 and Audition 3. When double-clicking on a .sesx file Audition is not lauched.
To be more precise, "edit in adobe audition" is working in the main menu but in the submenu "open in adobe audition" is greyed out. Thanks

If Audition isn't launched when you double-click on a SESX file, then you may wish to reinstall Audition. I know that's not a fun process, but it looks as if something isn't set up right.

I had this problem and fixed it pretty quick without the need to uninstall and reinstall.
Look for the default .sesx files in your Document/Adobe/Audition/6.0/Session Templates folder (on Windows 7)
There should be a list of preset .sesx files. Right-click one and set its default application as Adobe Audition by using the "open with" option.
Once I did this I double-clicked to open the .sesx files with Audition, closed it, opened Premiere Pro CC and VUAAA-LAAA the button is available and fully functional.
Hope this helps someone!
JoynnyZ001 thank you SO MUCH for providing a way around the above discussed problem WITHOUT having to mess about installing and uninstalling. I'm running Adobe CC on a newly installed system and so there is no way I should be having to re-install software already - your fix worked
JoynnyZ001 Than you so freaking Much!!!! i have had this problem since i updated to CC and no answers as to why or how to fix it!!! Glad i finally stumbled upon this thread!!! Got it fixed and it works like a charm!! Very Happy! Thank you again!
This method definitely led to me fixing my problem. What I discovered in the Document/Adobe/ folder was TWO Adobe folders: one had Audition in it, the other had Premiere and some others. So while I had tried everything listed in this thread to no avail, when I copied the first folder over to the second it now works as expected.
there's a problem because I can't choose audition as the software the file would open with. I choose it but it never appear on the list of softwares. I don't know how to say it but it doesnt work. Does anyone know what's wrong? And I have this same graying problem, and using Premiere Pro CS 6 (and autition cs 6). Windows 7. (Audition works fine by its own.)
I wonder if I did something wrong in installation. For example Does it matter if I choose to install the 64bit versions or the other one..?
JoynnyZ001 You rock dude! I got the update for cc today (cc 2014) and had the problem. Read your thread and it worked like a charm! If you were nicole kidman I would kiss u.
Thanks a million
I have the same problem, only I'm running Win 8.1. When I go to Documents/Adobe, I don't see an Audition folder. Both machines running Win 8.1 CC 2014 and Edit in Audition is grayed out on both. Is there a solution other than the one mentioned for those running Win 7?
Like FelixUnderwood, I'm running CC 2014 on Windows 8.1 and "Edit Clip In Adobe Audition" is grayed out. I tried the .sesx fix, and I also tried a fix suggested in another thread, involving looking up the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/.prproj registry entry, but that doesn't exist on my system.
The clip I'm trying to edit is from a multi-camera source sequence, and I've found that if I put the original source clip in the timeline, the option to edit in Audition is available. So perhaps this has to do with clips that aren't just plain audio or video? If the actual audio can be edited in Audition, however, it seems to me that Premiere should be able to send it through, regardless of whether it's coming by way of a multi-camera source or from a plain A/V clip - I shouldn't have to painstakingly replace all my multi-camera clips in order to send them to Audition!
With Windows 7, it would not allow me to associate the .sesx extension to Audition: not in Explorer, Default Programs, or even by editing the registry. I've been working with Windows ever since 3.1 and I've never had a problem associating extensions before. However, a simple uninstall and reinstall of just Audition fixed the problem for me.
Thank you for this fix! I was so mad after updating as I do weekly videos and audition is a big part of the process And I was having to use premiere plugins and it's just not the same. BTW if anyone doesnt find any files in the audition folder it's because you haven't saved an Audition project. Just close premiere, open audition, save a project as whatever, close audition, and then go to that folder in documents>adobe>audition>7.0 and open the .sesx file with audition. This may be common sense, but just in case.
Thank you very much for this fix!
This worked for me as well. Thanks, thanks, thanks !!!
Thanks a lot for this workarround. I found the folder with .sesx files in audition preferences -> Media & disk cache, in de lowest box under Audition Session Templates.
Or go with ksanders308 suggestion.
I have the same problem but on a Mac — the Edit Clip in Adobe Audition option is greyed out. Audition is registered to handle .sesx files. I’ve tried reinstalling it but it doesn’t help. Is the process of checking whether Audition is installed different on Macs?
Thanks a lot
this was actually not working for me: I am working with sound right off the camera, a 7D. I am also working on a mac computer. I too have the same problem: it allows me to enable Audition for the whole sequence but not for just the clip...looked through this whole forum and don't see my solution yet. please let me know if you can help. mostly i have a lot of noise on one small clip and just want to clean it up, otherwise video is clean.
I am having the same problem. ProCC latest update, have tried all the above and still greyed out.
IS IT NOT frustrating that this known problem is not dealt with by Adobe. Why are we wasting our time discussing it here when it should not be a problem in the first place. Clearly connections are not being made and it relates to the original design of the software.
I am in the silly situation of 'roughly' calculating the length of .wav file I need, opening up the original file, editing it in Audition, saving it as a separate file, and then importing that into the premiere project. We should not have to do this, it's just bad design.
I have been searching the forums and have not found a solution yet. Audition DOES open when I double click .sesx files.
I am running Audition CC 2015 and Premiere Pro CC 2014. This is my first download of Audition. This Premiere CC 2014 I have is my latest update.
I just ran into this problem and associating just the .sesx file didn't do it for me. so what i did is renamed a .sesx file to .ses for the older versions of Audition and associated this file with the new audition as well. Once I did this second association of the .ses Premiere Pro now allows me to send to Edit in Audition.
I am running Win 7 Ultimate
32 GB of RAM
So for you that are having problems and the .sesx file does open Audition but you still cant edit in Audition from Premiere Pro CC then try associating the .ses extension to Audition as well.
Yes, this is the only thing that worked for me. Change a .sesx file to .ses, double click on it, and tell Windows to associate it with Audition. Thank you.
Yes, I just tried this and converting a file to .ses worked. Months of problems with this now solved. Thanks
I have this problem past ago, too. Here the link what I have done before. Premiere Pro CC - DynamicLink to Audition
But are you able to send the audio files back to premiere pro cc? Because by my Audition is it grey to open in Premiere pro. I´m still waiting of the support reply since 2 weeks.
I start in Premier Pro, highlight an audio clip, right click, select "Edit in Audition" (which now is available as a choice since linking the .ses file to Audition), then Audition opens with the audio file loaded, I make any changes I want in audition, then I close Audition and a dialogue box opens inviting me to save the file back to Premier Pro, which I say yes to, and then Audition closes, I'm back in Premier Pro, and the audio file changes are present after a few seconds.
After I try everything with...
- change file type app (.ses, .sesx)
- deinstall Audition, cleaner toll, install back again
- Use a new Windows Admin user
- delete the 8/0 file in direction path
- and many other not working solutions ways
and all this was not working for me, so I deinstalled Premiere Pro CC, I want run the CC Cleaner but the tool dosn´t find any Premiere file, so I installed Premiere again and now it works. I can open the file from Premiere to audition, make changes and resend back to Premiere. I don´t know why it works now, but I´m happy.
By the way, it dosn´t deinstalled all my plugins so I´m lucky it was not so much time to do that. Maybe it helps you, too.
I had the same problem. My SESX files were already associated, but for some reason the .SES re-naming and opening trick seemed to do it. Not sure why, I'm on 2015.3 at this point.
