Yes I have noticed really strong slows on opening, closing projects, as well as loading libraries into Kontakt.
All my system is up-to-date : Last version of Cubase (9.5.2), last version of Kontakt (5.7.3) windows 7 all up-to-date.
I remember that I didn’t have those slows on the version 9 of Cubase.
So what happened, Steinberg ?
It is really annoying when you use a lot of instance of Kontakt, all filled up to full 16 midi instruments routed to 4 stereo outputs or sometimes 16 mono output. The DAW starts to slow down right at the first kontakt player loaded into my racks.
After 5 instances of kontakt it could takes almost 45s for each settings change of the player.
And it is also really annoying because working with the software is my main pay-day job… so I have to be fast to stay competitive…
If you have answers and solutions I would be pleased…
