AA Translator will soon support Ardour import (and export functions in a little while longer)
Hey all! Just letting you guys know that I have been aiding the AA translator team in testing their Ardour import functions, and it works surprisingly well! I have been able to convert Ardour sessions to OpenTL (for Apple's Logic 8 and 9), as well as generate Pro Tools session files from Ardour sessions! So far tracks (correctly named), automation, clip envelopes, clip positions, cross fades, and other function are working great. We are still working on getting panning and gain to transfer over, but I expect it shouldn't take long. I haven't yet tested panning and volume automation yet, but I'll be testing that fairly soon.
I realize this app is Windowz only, but it is a solution to cross session compatibility none the less. I'm not saying we should stop developing OMF/AAF import functions, but we will soon have other options to choose from (at least while other native import and export options are being developed). I'll try to keep you guys up to date on how the imports keep improving, and eventually how well export function are working.
