Cool. Thanks for the reply, Brett.

So, since the file I'll be doing the vocals over is a rough-mix whose
'start' and 'end' points will be different than the original tracks, does
that mean that there will be some fiddling in terms of getting the new
vocal track to line up correctly with the original tracks? (Once it's back
in pro tools?)

I'm assuming so.

Are there any decent tricks one can use in order to make the fiddling
easier?

My only concern is that since I won't be there for the final mixes, my
friend (the guy who's mixing) will just move things around until things
"feel right". As we all know, this can be a very subjective thing.

I'd like to make this as solid as possible so there's not a whole lot of
guessing going on.

Thanks again.

There shouldn't be any issues. I do this sort of thing all of the=

time, mixing multipel tracks from different studios using different
DAWs. AATranslator works very well, too, if you need to convert entire
PT sessions for Ardour.
