RADAR Studio/Pro Tools Integration

Greetings from the Polar Vortex….

New RADAR Studio owner here. I’ve recorded a session in RADAR Mode and would like to import it into Pro Tools, which is installed on my unit. How is this done?

Thank you

You need to use the Menu to Export the tracks to BWAVs, write them to a drive that is windows accessible, then import them into PT while in Workstation mode,

Takes maybe 2 minutes? Never bothered me.

If you recorded something in another DAW (like Logic or GB) or even on a different machine, you’d likely have to export to get the tracks into another DAW like PT too. I see it as a pretty similar task.

i have never used radar (obviously), what do you see the major draw for using radar vs PT? in the past it was the conversion, but now convertors are a hell of a lot better than the 888's. is it the workflow? if you're going to put the files into PT anyways, why not just start there?

i realize this may sound combative, but i am actually curious, not trying to be a jerk, and would love to understand.

Gotcha...I completely understand the question.

For me, it really depends on the workflow for each project. If it's tracked to a click where we might be changing the tempo and we're going to record 12 takes of drums per song , I'll usually use the RADAR as converters into PT vanilla and just go right in. I have an AES connection from the RADAR to my Mac.

If it's a polished band who is used to the old ways of a tape machine and no video monitor, a few punches here and there, RADAR Mode is great for using it just like we would a tape machine in the "olden days". You don't even need a video monitor...just the session controller which acts like an autolocator.

I do hope to someday pick up an ADA II with the PT HDX interface, but I'm getting by on just regular PT for now. And yes, it sounds very good....like a lot of converters these days!

Best,
Keith
