My friends have a song that they want me to remix and it's in Pro Tools format. UNfortunatley, i'm using sonar.
Is there a way I could convert the PT files into sonnar?
or would i have to download the demo versoin of Pt?

Otherwise, just exporting each track as a wave file is the other route.
I wouldn't say "unfortunately I'm using Sonar", more like "unfortunately he's using ProTools" cuz he's the one that got suckered, not you :-)

good point db ;)
May 08, 2007 12:19 pm protools does support omf but you gotta pay extra for it...and i think it's something in the ball--park of $300-500 USD...bastards!
May 08, 2007 12:25 pm why am I not surprised by that...
May 08, 2007 12:55 pm Don't take this too personally WYD, cuz I like ya, but why on earth does anyone still use this product by choice?
Adding to that, why, then, is Microsoft made out to be such bad people, DigiDesign beats MS hands down sometimes...
WOW...$500 to use an open format...just...WOW
May 08, 2007 01:22 pm oh i detest PT, for just that reason...and i see microsoft as a sort of necessary evil..i just dont' like apples, and i'm not comfortable learning linux...i try to avoid PT whenever possible, but a sad truth is, atleast here in nashville, EVERYONE uses PT. if you plan on tracking at one place, and mixing at another (which is what most ppl 'round here do, then PT is the obvious choice. i hate it, but i'm planing on taking a PT class here in town at a local studio just because it's something i feel i've gotta know in order to make a living in the recording industry.

Funny how the people like Cakewalk and the few others that support OMF just give it away and its actually built in natively. You don't need to run it as a pluggin for cripes sake!!!
Oh well, enough PT bashing for now.
