Does anyone know if songs created in Live 9 can be opened in Live 8?
I'm collaborating online with other musicians. I'm ready to upgrade to Live 9, but some of the others won't.
So, the question is, can a song created in Live 9 be opened in Live 8? Are the file formats compatible? Obviously some of the new elements (like Clip automation and use of the new plugins) would be lost. But if I bounced those tracks down to audio, would a Live 8 user still be able to open up the song?
Putting it another way, are the .als file formats compatible, or is it an upward journey only with no backward compatibility?
And yes, I realise that Live 8 tracks can be opened in Live 9! I'm talking about the reverse scenario.
