cpr file is getting to big (292 MB)

I just started to build an orchestra template - no audio files in it - just midi tracks (644).
in the mixer I have some use of plugins like EW Spaces Lexicon Reverb …

my .cpr file is getting a size up to 292 MB right now. is this normal ?
loading, saving and even just closing takes extremely long.

hopefully someone has an idea.


Yep. Even if you disable tracks the cpr is still big. My base template is around 169Mb but increases once I put data in…

Yes, I only recently realised how big the cprs can get, even disabled. Some instruments are much bigger offenders than others - for example, I had a bunch of NI Action Strikes all disabled. Getting rid of those reduced my cpr by a third.
