    Tutorial Request-How to transfer a project from Logic 7 to Logic
    I cannot seem to find a simple explanation/tutorial on how to transfer a complete song project from Logic 7 (on friends computer) to Logic 8 (on my computer). I've tried it with 2 songs using a LaCie backup drive..but I find the audio files (guitars, vocals are missing. My friend will be upgrading to Logic 8 (all the songs were created on his computer w/Logic 7) and we want to be able to record at his house then copy the song..bring it up to my computer...work on the song...then copy...take it back to his computer. I know that until he upgrades to Logic 8, the transfer will only go one way to Logic 8 and not back to Logic 7...that's OK..but then it will be back and forth from Logic 8 to Logic 8. We have used the drum loops, Rhodes, B3, lots of live vocals and guitar tracts. I know there is a simple way to accomplish this..just need an friendly expert out there who could explain this operation to some of us out there who are trying to do the same. Thank's in advance!

    Hi Aussie I think i's probably covered in the Mastering logic 7 or 8 but here goes: In L7 go to File>Save as project... choose a filename. This will become the name of your project and the folder which it and all the project files will reside in. In the bottom half of the save as project window are lots of options for what you want logic to do with these files. Mark them all as copy. Make sure the "Create folders for audio file groups" is checked. Now when you wanna swap your logic songs/projects with your friends copy the entire folder on to cd/dvd/usb stick and give it to him/her. Voila. Remember, however, that Logic 8 projects cannot be read by Logic 7... Hope that helps Rounik
