The interface of logic express 8 turned unexpectedly white and froze, while I was working on a project. I couldn't save, nor quit. It happens now every time I open Logic Express 8. I cannot work anymore on my projects.What has happened to the software? What can I do to prevent this form happening?

Thank you


Logic Express 8, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    If you are Using Lion as your Tag suggests... Then you need Logic 9.1.7

    Logic 9.1.7 is no longer available for sale by mac. They propose instead to purchase Logic Pro 9 which costs 199.99$. If i decide to update to this new program, will I loose my projects from Logic express 8? Will they be compatible with Logic Pro 9?

    If you Upgrade from Logic express 8 to Logic 9 (by Purchasing it via the Mac App Store)... Then...

     

    Save your Logic 8 Creations as PROJECTS with ALL ASSETS...

     

    Put them on an External Drive in a Folder called  “ Logic 8 Originals “

     

    Then... when you open them with Logic 9...  give them a New Name...

     

    Saving the New L9 Versions where you want...

     

    That way you will always have the L8 Originals...
