First of all, welcome to the LUG, and yes, seeing as you wish to use Logic 8, this is the correct forum. It is indeed possible to transfer projects from Logic 5.x to Logic 8. If they are Logic "only" projects, i.e. they do not contain any instances of 3rd party software such as vst's, the transition should be fairly straightforward, with the caveat that Logic 8 may have some trouble with long names (more than 32 characters) of audio files - you may need to help it find some audio files manually. Make sure you know which folders they are located in.Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, but i would like to transfer my work from 5.5.1 to 8 and have been told it can be done.
As understandable as that is, it may in fact be wiser to finish projects before making any major changes to your system.Any help on this would be fantastic as i have lots of projects i would like to finish off on my new mac
Logic 8 can open up Logic 5/6/7 files directly.Yes generally old files (I just opened a Logic 3.5 session this way!!) need to be opened in Logic 7 first. Then saved. Then open them in Logic 8. best, jamie
