Free Pro Tools for File Transfer from Client? PT to Studio One.

I use Studio One and am happy with it. But I have a client who wants to send me his pro tools session vs bounce everything out. Its a small pop record with 36 tracks (mono and stereo so maybe 50 voices). I see that I can download the free version but I am limited to 16 voices! Can I still open the session? Would everything open and I can select the 16 voices then bounce the files myself in phases?

I grew up on Pro Tools in 2004 but looking at the plans, Im glad I didnt stick with it. But I do need to open a session here and there.

What are my options? Maybe there is another way to open a PT session only to bounce tracks to use in Studio One. And can I use the UA interface with the free version?

Pro Tools First is limited to only 16 tracks and can only work with cloud-based "projects". I'm not sure if it can even import tracks or session data from a regular Pro Tools session. Your best bet is to rent Pro Tools for a month for $34.99. Make sure not to do the "Annual Subscription - Pain Monthly", but the "Monthly Subscription - Pain Monthly", or you'll be on the hook for a whole year. Also, make sure to cancel the subscription and turn off auto-renew before the month is up.

Or drop PT alltoghether.
Have your client send you wav files of each track, all starting at 0.00.00, and drop them into Studio One.

Tell the client to select the clips in the edit window (selection starting at 0.00.00) and choose "Consolidate" in the menu. Then go to the Audio Files folder of the session, sort by date, and the newly created files are easily located. Close session without saving, and the files can be deleted after you've recieved them.

Sure. This is the easiest. Or exporting as aaf. But when they say they don’t know how or can’t, I need to figure it out. That program seems ok. If people confirmed that it works I’d buy it.
