When I finish a song and master it in the project window, then save the project and then go back to the song, I see the star next to the name, which indicates that the project needs to be saved. To be on the safe side, I save the song afterwards. But when I open the project again afterwards, I get the message that a newer version of the song is available because I had to save the song again - even though the song hasn't changed at all.

I'm not seeing that.  Here's what I did:

  • Create a new project
  • Import File/choose the Song I want to master
  • It automatically opens/creates the master file (I hadn't already done that when the Song was open)
  • I make some changes (added EQ).
  • Save project
  • Click on Songs in the menu to switch to the Song

It was not marked as "dirty" - no asterisk.
