Importing OMF possible with PT:MP8 (without MPT2)?

As title really,

Looking to buy PT-MP8 today but i'm a little concerned that i cannot import OMF files exported from a Cubase project.

Is it possible without buying the music production toolkit?

Many thanks.

Nathan.

You need the Digitranslator to do it, which actually doesn't even come with the MPTK, only the DV Toolkit 2, but it can be bought on it's own. There are a few licenses for it on eBay with a BIN of about $150 each.

Edit: just realised you're after PT M-Powered - you might want to get clarification that the Digitranslator actually works with it - Digi says no but some users on the DUC say that with 7.4 at least it did work OK for them.

Traditionally Digitranslator has been an HD/LE only tool.

I don't think OMF transmits enough info from Cubase to PT to
be of much use. Yea, you get the tracks .. and regions, but
that's about it.

I would just bounce the tracks out, emit a midi file (for tempo-map and markers)
and import them into PT.. no OMF required.

Unless your material is heavily loop based, you're not going to get
a lot of benefit.

you won't get any plugs mapped or busses or anything else of
value in OMF.

now, for post work, it's a different story.
