In my experience, "upgrading" the session from ardour 2 to 3 works
just fine, but going the other way probably does not work. As far as I
know, 3 and 4 use the same format, so they could even be
interchangable, but in general, you can move your sessions to newer
versions just fine, but not the other way.
