AATranslator was originally developed to take advantage of Adobe Audition's excellent editing capability where the result was to be mixed in a ProTools equipped facility.
Since then we have continually improved AATranslator to the point where it now converts more formats (including PTF, PTX, OMF & AAF) than any other session conversion program.
So if you have either a commercial or practical reason that makes it necessary to move a session from one DAW to another then AATranslator is probably your best solution.

AATranslator2 is being constantly developed with additional formats and revisions to accomodate the latest versions of formats that we already support.

AATranslator2 is a PC only program
While AATranslator2 is a 64bit PC application (Windows 7 or later) and it can be installed on a Mac using Crossover, Wineskin, MS Boot Camp, Parallels or similar.
We recommend either Wineskin or

Does AATranslator2 convert everything?
The short answer is no.
DAW/NLE capabilities vary so enormously that a complete conversion between every session format is impossible.
We do convert far more detail than any session conversion program has offered so far but we do not convert either plugins/fx or midi.

While we do extract audio from many video files if your session consists of mainly video files then it's advisable to contact us as to suitability.
e will happily convert a test session for you, answer any of your questions and possibly add additional functionality.

"I have just finished working on a short film with 2 guys on the other side of the planet, and working on different platforms to me. This production involved various workflows including:
* me receiving audio edits of location sync sound which had been cut in Adobe Premiere, sent to Adobe Audition, and then exported to OMF or AAF for transfer to me (I'm working in Reaper).
* me receiving ProTools session files, of some of the sound design, which also needed to be imported into Reaper.
Mick Rooney's amazing efforts with AATranslator meant that within mere minutes, I was able to extract an OMF into a new folder, and have access to all the individual .wav files which were used in the original session formats, but have them in a .rpp (Reaper) format. Without a word of exaggeration, without AAT, this collaborative effort involving 3 geographically-separated, and software-independent teams) simply would not have been possible. Thanks heaps AAT!" Bruce Williams (audio2u)
