How can I import an instrument track from one project to another?

I have a project got messed up, let's call it "OLD" and I want to redo it in to a new project NEW.

I want to copy tracks from OLD into NEW. The OLD tracks I want to copy have Drum kit from hell (a software instrument).

How do I copy them?

I tried: Logic > Import > MIDI. But I did not see the file I want there.

iMac Logic Pro X 10.4.8 EZ Drummer 2 + DKFH (all updated)

  • Did you save the tracks of the old project as midifiles? – Albrecht Hügli Apr 21 '20 at 21:30
  • No, I did not save the tracks of the old project as midifiles. – Garrett Apr 21 '20 at 21:31
  • Are you talking about regions, the actual MIDI information? I have copied and pasted regions from one Logic project to another. You can have both projects open at the same time and go back and forth between them. – John Belzaguy Apr 21 '20 at 22:17
  • How do you open two projects at the same time? When I choose File > Open, it gives me a dialog box for my current project: Do you want to save the changes made to the document [...]? [Don't Save] [Cancel] [Save] – Garrett Apr 22 '20 at 0:40
  • Funny, I get a window that says Do you want to close the current project before opening a new song? Closing it is recommended unless you wish to copy data between songs. Then it has Don’t Close, Cancel, and Close. Try saving the song first then going to open in the menu. – John Belzaguy Apr 22 '20 at 1:07

To be able to open multiple projects simultaneously, turn on Preferences > Advanced Tools.
