    hey guys,
    okay so i recorded the band with Logic Express 7. I have a good friend in Nashville who is way way way beyond me when it comes to mixing and mastering. i'd love to send him the tracks i have so that he can work his magic. the problem? he uses pro tools only, so i can't just sent the Logic file. is there an easy way to export the tracks as a .wav so that he can open them up on the other end? if anyone can help out with this it would be much appreciated. thanks
    jon

    I don't know if Logic Express has the capability or not, but I send my recordings from Logic Pro 8 to professional Pro Tools studios by simply exporting the project as an OMF. The OMF project file is opened by Pro Tools with all region, volume, and panning info. I've never had any complaints from the Pro Tools guys about it...

    i've heard that you can "consolidate" the tracks and send them that way, eliminating the need to bounce each track. any idea on how to "consolidate"?

    When you export as an OMF it is all "consolidated" into one OMF project file. You click on the OMF File and it opens the entire project - the whole song, all the tracks - you should check and see if Express can do it though.

    wondering how you've exported as an OMF? is it an actual option under FILE?
    i can't seem to find where the export option is. any help would be great. thanks holyears........

    "File" --> "Export" --> "Project as OMF File" then you just have to name the OMF project and it then exports. Like I said though, this is in Pro 8. I really hope it works for you in Express 7!!

    These Days protools is using BWF or wave files, ask your engineer what they prefer though.
