Send to, from FCP to STP

Does anyone know how to send a sequence from Final Cut Pro 7 to Soundtrack Pro 3.0.1 and retain all audio filters that I applied in FCP?

I am trying to get my short film into Soundtrack Pro for 5.1 Surround mixing.
While editing the picture in Final Cut Pro, I did a fair bit of audio work (adding reverb filter, gain, etc).
When I perform a send to Soundtrack Pro command, my sequence shows up in STP, but all my filters from FCP are removed.

I am looking to use STP for 5.1 mixing only, not audio sweetening.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for your time.

Round tripping via XML will often result in specific plugins not translating. Same happens going to Color. STP has much better built in reverbs, dynamics and EQ. FCP is a basic offline audio tool at best.

The only way to get your FCP plugins to round trip is to bake them in by re-recording the audio with FX and replacing the timeline audio. That may take longer than just redoing in STP.
