If you are using the standard built-in instruments and effects (and loops) that come with Logic Express 7 then it's as easy as opening the project in Logic Pro 8. It will open up just fine!
I'd recommend once opening the project in L8 choosing the "save as..." command so you don't overwrite the original L7 version.
I don't have Logic 7 installed anymore and can't remember if a Logic Pro 8 project can be opened in Logic 7 or not... It probably can, but better to be safe. This way you'll have one version in L7 format which you can open in L7 if needed and one version in L8 format.
Well, I go into L7 and click open, and click the little
house logo and music. Yet, I do not see the song
that I created. Once I find the song (which I haven't
as yet and can use a little help with this), do I select all and then save the song in L8?
Where do you normally save your projects??
By default, Logic normally saves them to:
Is it in the File > Open Recent list?
Have you done a Spotlight search for the file name?
Once you have saved the project then simply open Logic 8, choose File > Open... and navigate to the location on your drive where the project is and open it.
Then choose File > Save as...
and save it to a new location/or wherever you like with a slightly different name (personally I'd add L8 to end of the file name). Logic will then create a new project folder with containing this project in the Logic 8 format.
The searching on spotlight worked. Now I have
song in L8. It looks different, but sounds fine.
I am going to add different loops and make some
changes while retaining the basic song..
This shouldn't be any problem, correct??
