Using M-Powered PT Sessions in ProTools LE Rackmount Synthesizers

Using M-Powered PT Sessions in ProTools LE

I recorded a project for my band recently. Everything is going well, sounds great so far even with no mixing. My usual PT setup consists of 002R using Pro Tools LE 6.8 on a Windows XP SP2 computer. However, for the ease of mobility, this time I recorded using a Mac equipped with Pro Tools M-Powered version 7.xx. I backed up all the data and brought it on to my PC at home for mixing. This is where the problem is.

The session files from M-Powered do not open in my LE 6.8 system. I noticed they have different extensions. M-Powered is .ptf and my LE setup is .pts. I have tried renaming the extension, as well as looking on the mac to see if I could save them in a different format. No luck so far.

QUESTION: Is there anyway I can open these session files on my LE system, or am I doomed to import all the audio manually to new sessions?

Thanks ahead of time for your help.

.pts is the old extension used by pre-PT7 versions...

Try saving your M-Powered session as an earlier version of pro tools.

Go to file>save as...> and select the appropriate version from the drop down menu.

It should work fine after that.

good luck

I tried doing that, as I remember it from a PT vid on digi's site. Perhaps I wasn't looking hard enough. I will try again and report back.

It's an option when you select "Save Session Copy"... Not "Save As".

yes, I was mistaken!

It is indeed in the "Save Copy In..." and not in "Save As..."

Thanks for pointing that out

peace
