From what i understand, initially the project format should be the same.
This will eventually NOT be the case anymore though, since the Mini is far more powerful and most likely we will see features on the Mini that won’t make their way into the OG Tracker (because of Hardware Limitations).
It would seem to be a real pity if there wasn’t the ability to transfer between the two easily (albeit with some samples failing to load for example or getting converted to mono as required)
To have the two proceed down non-convergent paths would be to diminish the appeal of both machines
I think a compatibility mode or toggle in the config per project would be great. So we could limit the Mini to just use the OGs specs for the files for easy transfer between the two and both ways. A collab with friends would be easier that way.
Thanks for your question. We are still developing how compatibility will work but a track made on the OG tracker will work on the Mini, however the Mini will have almost 5x the sample size as well as stereo samples and a few other features. These will not transfer to the OG tracker so there will be either a progress bar or another indicator on the project that will let you know if your Mini project is compatible with the OG.
