Hi mtec & Welcome to MacProVideo Forums!
Yes, it is possible. I have done this with Logic Studio files from 8.0 and read them on machines using Logic express 8.0. I haven't tried it with 8.0.1 yet but assume it should be fine.
Logic Express is essentially the same as Pro without the following:
- Surround sound capability
- Space Designer
- Delay Designer
- Linear Phase EQ
- Match EQ
So either don't use these plugins on the project you send to your friend or bypass them.
Let us know how it works for you!
