Slow loading time on a powerful computer?
« on: January 31, 2021, 05:15:07 pm »
So, i just bought Analog Lab V. To be honest I wish I did not.

Every time I open it in Cubase, either the project freezes or it takes like 2 minutes to load it in.

Does anyone have some guidance to help me fix this?

Welcome.
How quickly does it open in standalone? I have a ten year old iMac with a hard drive (remember those?) and AL5 takes about 20 seconds to load, which I accept is a consequence of my running new software on old hardware. I'm sure it's much quicker on modern computers. If your 'powerful computer' has an SSD you should be getting a better experience than me.

I second this impression. And to add, I have been an avid user of AL4 with no performance problems. Using the same computer for AL V, the loading of the VST and change of presets takes 10x longer, same computer, same operating system. Even still with AL4 installed, which still works just fine. If it helps any, Pigments 3 started showing the same performance degradation during VST and preset loading, in comparison to Pigments 2. No performance issues during sound playback. Once VST and presets are loaded, normal synth operation works just fine. It's only the VST loading and preset changes that take longer with the AL V version vs AL4 (and Pigments 3.x vs 2.x). I run on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, both x64. And I have heard anecdotes from Mac users with the same observations, if that helps troubleshooting.

I have the same issue (VST and standalone).
CPU performence doesn‘t matter. It‘s always 25 sec loading time.
Once running, itˋs fine. But loading time is extremely high with 25sec per instance VST, so AbletonLive Project loading time rises with any Track/instance ALV. 

One funny thing: NI KompleteKontrol VST loading time (one instance in Ableton Live) is less than one second and it delivers full V-Collection Banks & Instruments. So NI may be the better gui for Arturia VST Collection.

because I have no different loading times between old CPU device and actual high performance CPU (always 25sec) ist must be an issue of GUI AL5 starting routine.
Even HDD and SSD doesn’t make time difference. 

One approach to the problem:

Could ist be, that A-Lab always rescans all of my 15.000 Sound Presets/Banks? That could be reason for loading time.

In comparison - NI KompleteKontrol does  not rescan synth and sound presets in strartroutine. Rescanning library is separate part of menue settings and Must be done manually.
