We offer a wide variety of recording
EXPORTING TO DIGITAL PERFORMER:
Most of our clients record their projects in the Digital Performer format. Digital Performer allows very convenient access to our great digital converters (unlike Pro Tools, which is limited in choices) as well as access to a much more capable MIDI editing environment that interfaces with our vast sampler and keyboard selection quickly and efficiently.
We are often asked how to get a project begun elsewhere into a format that can be easily imported into Digital Performer, and have provided this brief overview:
To convert a "Pro Tools" (Mac) session to Digital Performer (Mac):
Unfortunately, Pro Tools doesn't provide a "save as Performer" option in their file save menu. Because of this, we recommend the following method to export a pro tools session to a Digital Performer format.
Export each final track into one contiguous waveform starting at the same point (usually the very beginning of the song ) in SDII format. It's CRUCIAL to note that all bounced tracks to be exported must start at EXACTLY the same point. In some cases, such as a live show recording where you only want "song #4" for example, you might only wish to export part of a file. That's fine as long as the SAME start point is used for ALL tracks.
For instance, for a song having only mono kick, snare, bass and a stereo guitar solo (which doesn't come in for 2 minutes) you would:
1) Record the
Kick only to one
mono track from the
VERY start of the
song up until the
end of the last
Track all MIDI devices to audio if you are pleased with the quality and character of your available sounds, separating all drums and eliminating all effects if possible.
It is recommended that you additionally save all MIDI data as "Standard MIDI File"
format to allow additional MIDI triggering
in our studio just in case a different sound is desired.
CDR's are the
safest media on
data to and from
