I have an old Mac with Emagic Logic 2.5.4 (before Apple bought them). Can I save a song that can be opened with the current Logic software (or any other software for that matter), and if so, how?
My computer is on the brink and I would hate to lose all the songs I've written.
Many thanks

    Current Logic versions will not be able to open Logic 2.x songs directly.

    What you can do is export your songs from Logic 2.x in midifile format (I assume these are all MIDI only) and load the midifiles into current versions of Logic.
    Rosebook Pro, Logic Studio 2.0, SD3, AMT8, MCU, LCXmu, Keymap, Mac OS X (10.6.4), "Learn by doing, as well as asking."

    Indeed, one has to save as a MIDI file and then it can be opened in any DAW, but you will lose Logic-specific references.


    I have a question for both of you however. I notice that both of you have Logic 2.0/2.5. I have suffered a catastrophic power surge on my Power Mac, which wiped out my HD in the process. I am now in the process of trying to find a copy of Logic 2.0 so I can re-install on a replacement Mac, as I've lost my original floppies a long time ago. My question is this: if you guys maybe have upgraded to a newer DAW, would you consider letting me have or selling me Logic 2.0? You would really be helping me out.


    Anyways, I would certainly appreciate it if you would get back to me.


    If this is not allowed, please let me know, I just don't know another way of asking such a question.
