    I'm a Digital Performer user and I have a compatibility question for you Pro Tools users. I have a client that wants to track drums and other loud instruments at my studio and take the finished tracks back to his place for mixing in Pro Tools LE. If I save all the files as AIFF and save the song as an OMF file can Pro Tools LE open it? I suppose that they could open the files and just manually move them so that they sync up but that would be time consuming. I'd prefer that they be able to preserve the time code some how. does OMF files allow this? Any suggestions? Comments? Thanks,

    I cant quite remember if DP allows OMF export? I dont really remember seeing that as an option ever but I could be wrong..otherwise export each file as the length of the song in either Aiff or SDII files..once you do that than they can load each file(import) into LE and voilla..they're all the same length and you dont have to nudge or anything annoying like that!!

    yep, DP does OMF...i thought 3.0 was supposed to bypass this stupid old middleman and do a staight export as a PT sesh, but i ain't seen hide nor hair of this feature yet.

    Bob, you don't have to do any audio conversion (unless you're going cross platform). just doing an OMF export with media will include all the audio in the tracks. if your client wants all the takes then you'll have to copy the whole audio folder over also. audio comes across in position w/fades, volume and pan automation.
