Enter a File Name (maximum 64 characters—Cakewalk limits name length for ISO CDR compatibility), and in the Save As Type field, choose OMF Version 1 or 2. Most applications expect Version 2, but check with your engineer.
Split Stereo Tracks Into Dual Mono. See what your engineer wants. If exporting a 24-bit project to a Pro Tools system, enable Split Stereo Tracks Into Dual Mono, as some Pro Tools systems do not support 24-bit interleaved stereo files.
Mix Each Groove Clip As A Separate Clip. If you have several Groove Clips in a track Cakewalk exports them as one clip unless you check this option. If you check this option, Cakewalk has to do a separate export operation for each Groove Clip in the track, which is very time-consuming. If you only have one Groove Clip in a track, and you have rolled out numerous repetitions of the clip, Cakewalk exports a single clip that is the length of the original clip and all the repetitions, which is not a time-consuming operation.
Audio Format. Ask your engineer what format the studio uses, Windows (RIFF Wave) or Mac (AIFC).
Cakewalk exports the project as an OMF file. In the Save as Type field, select the OMF version you want to save the project as. Version 1 is compatible with older applications. See your target application’s documentation for information on which version it supports.
