1. The clever sausages (or is that paranoid shysters?) at PT encryped their session files from v5.1 to v7ish.
The German cracking crew (or equivalent I guess) broke the code (SSL whatever) and were quickly bought out by ProConvert
PT in their effort to stifle competition and to stop anyone escaping from their evil clutches changed the encryption algorithm from v8 and dropped the price of their already overpriced converter to below that of ProConvert. I guess if you are going to take out the competition then don't muck around.
My Enigma machine hasn't worked in quite a while but lets not discount a v7 or v8 but realistically $39 or even $99 ain't gonna cut the effort - although I wouldn't mind being bought out by anybody (hello anyone listening?)
2. I have a pile of emails from people wanting conversions for a pile of DAWs eg Acid, Garage Band, Sonar etc etc and they are all hard enough.
Gonna head out to the kitchen and stab myself in the eye with a fork just to take my mind off this PT stuff which BTW is really coming along.
Given the hits on this thread I'm guessing a lot of people haven't got anything interesting to do
But seriously I need a range of PT5 session files (no audio) just so I can run my test code against them to see if I've missed anything before doing the serious part of building this into AATranslator.
So if anyone has some just 2 or 3 from a few different sources would be good.
I hope that answered the question and thanks for being interested
