Paging all Mac gurus...


Recommended Posts

I have a CD of a Mac ProTools session that I need to master on my PC. I had asked the engineer to export wave files for me, but he didn't. Instead, he just saved the session as normal so I'm stuck with mono SDII files, which I can't open with any Windows apps. ProTools Free for PC won't open these files either, I've tried. I have an iMac at work, but it doesn't have enough RAM to run PT Free :mad: . The iMac only has 64 MB of RAM and I can't get the system to use up less than 44 MB, which doesn't leave enough for PT. I downloaded SoundApp (PPC) for Mac and it's able to open the SDII files just dandy. I converted the format to Wave and it seemed to work, but when I open the files on my PC it shows a peaked wave form that is full of noise with only a bit of recognizable audio. Is there another shareware/freeware app that might do a better job or some setting that I'm missing? I'll try converting to AIFF from SDII to see if that makes any difference later.
