Backward Compatibility?

I am considering getting a copy of Reason 6.5. I am working with a friend who is using 5. Will I be able to open his files and will he be able to open mine so we can continue working together, or should I wait until he can also buy an updated version?

No he wont be able to use your 6.5 files. Wait for him to upgrade.

Reason is backwards compatible (new version open old versions files) but not forwards compatible (old version open newer versions files).

Well, I still may as version 5 isn't working on my new computer and I wanted to get the Recording ability it now has. I do appreciate the feedback. It's good to know beforehand. Old files, I presume, are capable of being opened in newer versions?

File compatibility is listed at the bottm of this page

Reason 6.5 can open any Reason or Record file but it will only save as Reason 6.5!
