    Logic\'s versions compatibility
    Hey guys, I recently got a session to work on from a friend of mine. I myself use 7.1 version whereas his session was created on 7.2 version. Upon opening the session on 7.1v I get "damaged song" message and basically am unable to open it. Would anybody have any suggestions? thanks a lot j

    Re: Logic\'s versions compatibility
    Hi Jag There is probably a problem with this file (corrupted?) Check what I got from Logic Pro Late 7.2 breaking news: Logic and Intel or PowerPC Macintosh Systems Logic Pro 7.2 is designed to run natively on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macintosh systems. This impacts in the following ways: For technical reasons, all song conversions between Logic PPC and Logic Intel will remove the Undo history. Songs saved in Logic 7.2 PPC can be opened with any Logic release between 7.0 and 7.1.1, ensuring that PPC Logic 7.2 songs remain compatible with earlier Logic Pro 7 versions and vice versa. Songs saved in Logic 7.2 PPC can be opened with Logic 7.2 Intel (and Logic 7.2 PPC). Songs saved in Logic 7.2 Intel can be opened with Logic 7.2 PPC (and Logic 7.2 Intel). Songs saved in Logic 7.2 Intel can not be opened with earlier versions of Logic (Logic 7.1.x or earlier). This means that Logic 7.2 Intel songs are only upwards compatible (Logic 7.2 Intel can open older songs but not vice versa). Note: Should you wish to make Logic 7.2 Intel songs compatible with Logic 7.1.x, simply open the song in Logic 7.2 PPC and save it. I hope it helps, otherwise check with the experts :-D

    If he's using an Intel Mac with his 7.2 you're outta luck with your 7.1 PPC... you've got to upgrade to 7.2 PPC to get it to work!

    yeah, I know so I guess it's not gonna be complete rip off. :-) thanks Steve PS: when are the advance tips and tricks coming out? Recently I watched the apple free seminar on remixing in Logic with Vince and something like this would be really cool but at least 4hrs of it. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet. jag

    That I think will be a big sell. there're a lot of people there waiting to advance their skills. I can't wait myself. PS: what do you know about Logic 8? I heard that apple wants to change the classic logic interface and make it look more like a GarageBand. :-(

    Re: Logic\'s versions compatibility
    hi Jag & Steve, Just to make it clear: If I save a Logic 7.2 Intel file, a Logic 7.2 PPC will read it, right? If I take this file to someone using Logic 7.1 PPC it will work, is that correct? By the way, the info I posted earlier one can reach at: [url]http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/Logic_Pro_7.2_lbn_z.pdf[/url] All the best and looking forward july!
