8 Bit Kit-Difference In Download Size

I notice that the download size of this from the new InMusic installer is about half of that from the old Fxpansion installer (about 6 vs. 13gb). Any reason for that? Am I losing some content? Thx.

I notice the file extensions are different between older and newer expansion installations. I assume the compression format has changed. Maybe that’s the answer?

The old stuff was wav files, and the newer stuff is BFD’s bfdlac format. It’s lossless encoding, but saves substantially on file size.

There’s a tool in BFD itself that will convert your old wav format expansion packs into bfdlac. It worked flawlessly, so I did it on all of my expansions years ago.
