Ses2Sesx - Bulk Audition/CEP Session Conversion Utility

* Convert Audition & CEP ses files to the new Audition CS6 (and CS5.5) sesx format with this utility *

The latest versions of Audition use a new session format (sesx) which is based on xml. While Audition CC, CS6, CS5.5 and CS5 can import OMF and Final Cut Pro sessions they don't import any of the old binary ses format session files from previous versions, they will only import xml session files saved from AA3.
So this is why we created Ses2Sesx. From Cool Edit 2000, CEP 1.1 right through to Audition 3.0 Ses2Sesx will convert these legacy sessions to the latest Adobe Audition CS5 & 5.5, CS6 and CC session (sesx) format.

The ses format has changed significantly over the years and developing this application has taken us months of intense effort. This handy utility will convert an Audition or Cool Edit Pro binary session file (ses) to an Audition CS5, CS5.5, CS6 or CC session file (sesx). We can understand full well why Adobe chose to concentrate on core features rather than backward compatability. We have a great fondness for Audition and we are dedicated to the idea of all DAWs being able to communicate with each other - guess what the A stands for in AATranslator.

We have created this conversion utility because we believe that it will be extremely useful to other Adobe Audition users. We are offering this application as 'donationware', so bear in mind that it has taken us hundreds of hours to write and test so if you find it useful, please do show your appreciation for our efforts by making a generous donation.
