Session Interchange Options In A Pinch

A quick and effective tip for exporting tracks from Pro Tools

All kidding aside, I tend to do most of my work in Pro Tools, mainly because I just like the program better than the other options.

However, I do have occasion to mix in other DAW’s from time to time depending on the needs of clients.

For instance, the other day I was mixing across town for a client and the session had been tracked in Logic.

However, a separate session existed in Pro Tools in which some effects had already been edited,

So, what could I do to get everything working together in one session? Well, I had a few options…


Unfortunately, I didn’t have my iLok with me which contains my DigiTranslator license, so that scrapped any chance of using OMF.

The Logic session contained several times more tracks than the Pro Tools session, so apparently I was going to export all my files individually from Pro Tools an reassemble them within Logic.

Me parece genial que el número uno “renegase” de Ant (que reconoció fue un parche), dejase Java hace 5 años y se pasara a Rails y después dejase la informática en si misma para hacerse fotógrafo. Definitivamente mi ídolo, pero en global, no por su aportación a Java.

No matter how much effort you’ve putted in taking care of your stuff, they will become dirty in one point and in other even too damaged to use them anymore. This applies to your furniture as well, and most of all to your sofa. Fortunately, you can make it last longer if you know how to maintain it.

There are t-shirts that have inscriptions such as “not in a good mood”, “baby on board”, “I’m pregnant, what’s your excuse?”, ” I’m making a human, what did you do today?”, “Already smarter than Bush”, “I just wanted a back rub” etc. There are funny clothes available for the father of the child too, with funny inscriptions such as “See how my boys swim,” “Man behind the belly”; “My pregnant wife scares me” etc.

Pro Tools usually offer the best options and user friendliness amongst the audio tools out there. I will use it most of the time, but I still appreciate the other alternatives that you have recommended. Thanks for your tips!
