Hmm - sounds like a pretty pricey situation. I wonder if it would be a lot less hassle to save the tracks out as wave files, than import them into Sonar? I realize that they'd have to set up the mix parameters manually to get it as close to the original project as possible. Perhaps that would be too much to deal with, depending on the complexity of the project. Just a thought anyway. I guess I've gotten quite used to work-arounds for so many things over the years.

I can't imagine that there would be a problem with both programs on the same system.

I use an M-Audio ProjectMix as my audio interface. Now, I have a friend who would like to do some work with me on four projects recorded with Pro Tools. Here is my question: Would it be OK if I install Pro Tools in my system in order to open these projects and export them to Sonar? I have been working with Sonar for about 7 months and my whole system works very nice for me. I would not like to create any conflicts or unknowingly change some settings that could affect the way either Sonar or my computer works. Can Sonar and Pro Tools coexist peacefully in the same XP-pro environment? Are there any settings in Pro Tools or any plug-in that I should be careful with during installation? Finally, if it is OK to install Pro Tools, do you know what is the best way to export a project from Pro Tools to Sonar? I have seen some references to the OMF format. Can I get that from Pro Tools? My friend is sighted and she does have some experience with Pro Tools, so she will be doing the actual exporting of the projects. Thanks in advance for your advise.
