    Pro Tools & Logic Pro 8
    Heh everyone (Rounik), How ya doin? I have a question about the compatibility b/w Pro Tools & Logic Pro 8: The studio where I want to record my drum parts uses Pro Tools, whereas I use Logic Pro 8. Is there a way where I can take my drum tracks/files from Pro Tools and import them into Logic Pro 8? Arigato Jodie

    hi riftmazefee, As far as I know, Logic 8 reads .sd2 files. So, I think there wouldn't be a problem. Greetings, macnando

    Hi guys, Yes macnando, you're completely right, Logic can import .sd2 files. I'm sure Pro Tools can output .wav too so you'll be fine there too :-)

    Hi Jodie, Pro Tools can definately output .wav files... which, imho, would be the way to go... Cheers, Bj

    Heh Rounik, Thanks for the information. BJ, a forum user, says that he suggests exporting from Pro Tools using .wav files as opposed to .sd2 files. What's your opinion, and exactly what is the process for exporting from Pro Tools: just normal exporting to my harddrive? Thanks man. Jodie

    Hi Jodie, There's not any difference I'm aware of in terms of quality between wav and sdII. Use wav files as they are more much commonly used and you never know when you might need these files again in years to come... I think wav's also contain time-stamp info, which is useful ;-) Maybe someone can give you are more technical reason... but i tend to stick to aiff and wav when exporting files to increase possibility of compatibility across a wide range of systems. Here's a little wiki on audio formats: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_file_format[/url] As for exporting from Pro Tools... Hope someone can give you a few tips on that one. Cheers Rounik

    Hi Rounik, Thanks for your explanations! Just as a picture, last january I had to send over the net an acoustic guitar track for a singer in Italy, I recorded in Logic and she would sing over in a Protools studio. So I saved my guitar as .sd2 files. For a reason that I don't know, the italian sound engineer couldn't read those files in his system. Obviously that I repeated the process and...nothing happened. So, he asked me to try to send .wav file instead. It worked just fine. BTW, this is Logic to Protools! Greetings, macnando
