Data transfer?

What is the best way to send a Sonar project 1000 miles?

So...I have a song with 5 audio tracks within Sonar. I need to send these separated tracks to Johannesburg for remixing on an Apple.

What would be the best way to do this?

(There are MIDI tracks too)

Remixing on an Apple?

Sonar is PC only... so it seems that the only way to do it is just to send the raw wav files and the midi files directly -- but if you have MIDI tracks and don't want the person to choose different instruments or sounds from what you've chosen, you should bounce those down to wav files as well.

Yeah i'd bounce it all down to seperate audio tracks, make sure you let them know at the other end what bit rate and frequency too - 16bit, 48kHz or whatever.

Sonar has the capacity to export as tracks... in the file menu, if memory serves. That'll do ya. But by now you probably already know this.

In terms of the actual transfer? I'd vote sneakernet- put the tracks on a USB key, and use whatever shipping method fits your budget/ time contstraints.
