    Default Vst instruments load time

    Hey all,
    all of a sudden vst instruments are taking a long time to load, and during that time the program seems frozen.
    Windows 10…
    any thoughts?

    Rich,

    As a semi-retired "service technician", when I am attempting to diagnose an issue presented to me by a client, the first thing that comes to mind, is "trigger", as in, "What triggered this anomaly?"

    If the client is unspecific - which is generally the case, I then attempt to ascertain when the system performed "without incident"?

    If the anomaly is more than a few days old, it might be difficult , indeed if not impossible to ascertain what that trigger is/was.

    There are quite a number of "background processes" occurring - which only tends to exacerbate the issue.

    What I suggest is that give me a call, or I can call you...whatever works. It is just there are so many"other things" that could be the cause of this issue and without knowing your system, in all honesty, proving any kind of "practicable support" is
    difficult , if indeed impossible to provide.

    Send me a PM, with how I may be able to contact you. I have had the pleasure of assisting Forum members from all over the world.

    Thanks for that...but first I'm gonna make sure my "windows tweaks" are all done as recommended.

    Rich,

    I do not believe this to be "Windows tweak" issue at all...there is something else going on!

    A few things of interest,

    1) I do not charge for my services to Forum member's
    2) As I get older, I find that my trying skills are not what they used to be [actually being somewhat of a programmer I tend to find myself better suited to coded-stuff than grammatical stuff.]
    3) Discussing any trouble-shooting matters, is always, always preferable via "conversation".

    I will then leave such in your most capable hands.

    If there is audio files make sure the edl sample rate is the same as the audio, otherwise saw will convert on the fly and it will appear to take a long time.

    If a thumb drive is involved, make sure that it is on a different USB channel than slow things - like your mouse and keyboard. It will default to the speed of the slowest hardware. I've been caught by that one.

    John,

    Good point to note!!
    * Reminds me PCI card issues way-back-when!

    However USB3 does NOT suffer from this anomaly!

    When I am employing Kontakt, I use an external SSD with USB3 and I have no issues whatsoever - having 6-8 instruments loaded!

    With all of this in mind, USB-C is even better [Thunderbird's are Go!]
