Cubase used to open in 1-2 minutes and the VST plugins were loading so quickly it was impssible to read each one. Now each VST-plugin takes about 2 seconds and all up loading Cubase takes about 15 minutes (didn’t time it but it was long!)
I rarely use this computer for anything else but DAW. Last week I installed Team Viewer 10 on it. It’s the only change I can think of.
