FYI, all Pro Tools systems will import WAV files as long as they're true 24-bit 
rather than the pseudo 32-bit files. Also, OMF is not a problem since the Digi 
Translator can be rented for an iLok key for a nominal fee. Projects can be 
translated during that 24 hour rental period .

  Hi, how can I export into aiff-files? I don't find it in sonar's file type 
and export.

  Thanks Stefan

    No, no, don't export as an OMF file. You are making the assumption that the 
ProTools user has the Digi Translator. If they do, then you can export to OMF 
otherwise don't bother.
    You can export all tracks to Waves at once which will name the tracks and 
they should be able to import directly into ProTools. If you have an extremely 
lazy ProTools to insure full compatibility, export as aiff files. I had a 
ProTools user that could not import waves for some reason.

      Hey Stefan!  

      In order to export Sonar project files so they can be read by Pro Tools, 
you need to export/save them as .OMF files.  

      Unfortunately, this setting is one of the file type option check boxes, 
when you first install Sonar.  

      I don't know if its at all possible to re-instate this option after 
installing, but I'm sure someone else on the list should know, failing that, 
I'd contact either Cakewalk or Dancing Dots...  
      Or, as a last resort, reinstall Sonar

        Hi, does anyone have an idea how to export sonar projects so that pro 
tools users can open it with out any problems? In Germany, you have the 
problem, that cubase and pro tools are more common than Sonar.

        Thanks for your answers.

        Stefan
