I have a project that my students did in Acid Pro 6, but they need to port it over to Acid Music studio 6. Is this possible?

we saved it as an acid-zip file and studio 6 said that it couldn't open it.

we just need the structure of the project to stay in tact (edits/crossfades - the basic layout of each track)

No, ACID Pro 6 Projects are not compatible with ACID Music Studio 6 projects.

ACID Music Studio 6 is based on ACID Pro 5, so the data structures are completely different as ACID 6 introduced many new features that are not backward compatible.

thanks for the response, Peter.

It's really too bad. it would be ultra cool to have the entire line of Acid products be able to talk to each other - even in the most basic form (EDL??) - I would die and go to heaven if Acid supported EDL or txt like Vegas.

I know that is a big draw for home studios to use Pro Tools M-powered since they can take their mixes to a local studio that has LE or HD and open up their stuff. It's like word processors that let you save your files to older/ or even universal or different document versions. It's necessary these days: Even if it means losing the information from new features - "something" is *always* better than nothing at all, since having at least something will save precious time and energy.

anyway ...
