Sonar to Logic

I spent half of yesterday going through old music-files, trying to see if there’s a way to somehow bring the few good things over to the Mac and into Logicsomehow.
Some web-searches taught me that there’s no way to open my old .bun or .cwb files from Sonar 1/Calkewalk Pro Audio in Logic, so I started by bouncing tracks to individual files, but that’s not a good solution because even if a track only contains a short sample it will still result in a full-length and mostly empty wav-file… Furthermore all effects get baked in and all virtual instrument settings and midi information is lost.
And then I noticed the Export OMF item on the menu… Turns out OMF (Open Media Framework) is a decent solution. It packs all audio (no midi) into a single file leaving all clips intact and it imports flawlessly into Logic (or, well. it loses most settings, ignores muted and archived tracks, etc. – but still, all clips are there… luckily I never got into mixing much…)
