Brinign session to high end studio ?

I am using sonar 3. i need to know how i would go about bringing what i have already individually tracked to the studio so i wouldnt have to retrack every song again (eight songs). I will be bringing it to a pro tools equipped studio. Has anyone done this ? what would be my options?

what file formats can Sonar export to?

the WORST that could happen is you bring your rig and transfer there to PT

tryin to avoid tracking again money reasons

sonar can export omf files and i knoe pro tools can read them but i asked an engineer about transfering that way and he told me it might work he wasnt a hundred percent sure maybe no one has done that in that studio. i might take a shot at it can hurt except only the pocket. i was lookin to see if there was another way
Thanks For the response

Consolidate(or whatever Sonar calls it) all your files as Waves or Broadcast waves...where they all start at the beginning of the tune. Then just import them into Pro tools I guess. Works like a charm. Not sure I explained that too well but I know what I meant!

That's what I would do... I've also received files this way with no problems.

one thing more I would suggest is to put a small, sharp transient, sound at the very front of EVERY track.
Just record it on all tracks at once.

that way, if there IS a time stamp issue later, you can align those peaks in protools and have the audio back in sync on all tracks.
