Hello all:

I was asked to mix a project that was recorded in Pro Tools ( not sure of the version, but I can find out if needed). I don't use Pro Tools, and never have, so my knowledge of the export options is non-existent.

Can someone enlighten me on the export procedure so I can relay the steps to the gent that has the originally recorded files? Let's assume for these purposes that he is not the most technically enlightened guy out there. What I would really like to know is:

When exporting stems, is there a setting to make all stems the same length so I don't have to worry about where a certain event starts/ends?

Or, is there a setting that will timestamp the origin point of the file?

What are the export options for file type?

I want the original sounds with no processing. Does he have to go into each track and disable any plugs, or is there an "Ignore Plugin" type of export setting?

Is Tempo imbedded in the file?

If anyone out there can see any potential problems, please feel free to comment.

Thanks
Matt

If you do that a lot just buy ... http://www.aatranslator.com.au/ ... which is only $60.

Export the PT project as OpenTL and open it directly in Studio One.

What, no macro?

Thanks for the info. I'll be back if I can't get that to work.

It works fine, I do it all the time. Unfortunately, there's no demo of AATranslator.

If you have the PT file, post it here and I will translate it for you as a demo of sorts for Michael (the AAT Developer), before you buy it.

The only odditiy is that most PT users use the default PT timeline which starts at 1 hour so your Open TL import will start way down the timeline. Not a biggie, just do a "Delete Time" to move the first song bar back to 0:00 in Studio One. Works great, and you don't have to repeat all of the users edits, trims etc.

But they do need to render their virtual instrument tracks to audio tracks first if they're using VI's.

Hope that helps.

Solid as always. Forgot to ask about VI's, so thanks for that tip, and the offer of assistance. I may wind up purchasing (or make the PT user purchase) the AAT Translator. This band does record ALOT, so this may turn into something more regular for me.

Thanks LMike.

Unfortunately it is only the 'standard' version of AAT which is $59 the one which allows conversions of all versions of PT as well as OMF & AAF is actually $199 (reflects the ridiculous amount of work we have done and continue to do in this area).

So for the casual user that can appear a little steep.
For the casual user we do offer a conversion service (which we don't actually publicise.
It works this way -
You send us what you want converted and we convert it for you
If you are happy with the results you make a donation of your choosing via our website
If you end up using this service to the point where you reach or exceed the value of a licence then we just give you a licence

Cheers
M

BTW It would be great if Presonus improved their OpenTL support by fully supporting the specification and even added some other formats to allow us to increase the detail we can provide in a conversion.

I thought I'd throw that one in
