Sonar/Cakewalk to PT TDM 5.1.3

Sonar/Cakewalk to PT TDM 5.1.3


Which is the best way or software to translate Sonar/Cakewalk sessions to PT 5.1.3 TDM?

I asked the producer/keyboardist to consolidate all tracks, record at 44k/24, Wave, and save the midi parts as a separate data, SMF 0 or 1.

Any other special care?OMF etc?

just done it

The consolidate audio function at Sonar is pretty funny, nothing to do with PTs similar function.
Export audio with tracks selected, midi selected did the job within Sonar´s confusing interface and tech terms.

There are a number of export options to allow you to export individual tracks, the output of busses, main outputs, etc. There's also an OMF export function -- but, of course, on the PT end you need the $500 OMF import tool. (Isn't that right? Or is that only for PT LE?)

The 'consolidate' function has been in there since the mid-90s. I guess Cakewalk thought they ought to be consistent with their own established nomenclature rather than make visiting Pro Tools users comfortable.

It's basically a project consolidation function, since CW/Sonar has a number of storage schema available, some of which can make a manual backup a pain.

It's always a pain in the neck using systems we're not familiar with.
