Is it possible to load a Logic 7 file into Logic 9
      #1015012 - 23/10/12 02:39 PM
I have a Logic 7 project that I created years ago on a PC and I want to load it into my Mac using Logic Pro 9.

Can this be done? It seems Logic wont load the file, what must I do?

Thanks

This thread seems to indicate that there's a problem loading old Logic (prior to universal binary) projects into the latest Logic:

http://www.logicprohelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=79353


You’ll notice that someone indicates (down the thread) that although you can't import the project, you can use the LogicPro 9 "Track Import function" to load the old project tracks into a Pro 9 project. Presumably you'll then have to reset all plugin and track level/automation settings manually (unless those are imported too?)

Overall - www.logicprohelp.com is a good forum for logic issues

Let us know how you got on.

Kevin.

You sure about that? Logic on PC ceased way before version 7.

LP9 *officially* loads LP5.x upwards.

However, there are some problems with *some* 5.x/6.x files, meaning you have to convert in LP7 first.

Anything created in LP7 and up will load into LP9 without problems.

Are you sure about this? There was NO Logic 7 for PC.

The last Logic version for PC was 5.5.1.

Logic 6 was Mac only.

That didn't work. I'm really stuck with this.

Any chance anyone out there will take my file and send it back in a compatible format?

If you upload it somewhere and post or PM me a link, I'll take a look. Only send the project file, no audio files or anything please...

Edit: Wow, I haven't loaded LP7 for a while. I used to think it looked nice (way more Appley than LP6, but it looks *awful* now...).

Anyway that should convert it - I don't have LP6 installed any more...
