Why did n-track 4.05 jump up so much in size from 4.04?

You only need the large download if you have not already installed the Miscrosoft .NET framework stuff. Don’t worry, it’s not spyware, or anything nefarious like that, and has nothing to do with your network connection.
If you read back a few pages on the forum, you’ll see a pretty lengthy discussion about this.

thanks, I’ll check it out when I get a chance.

Right now I’ve got some projects rolling with 4.04. So I’ll stick with it for now. Works good other than some faders that are maxing out on their own when fiddling with editing stuff.
