Importing WAV files in new project causes choppy playback

Hi All,

When importing 10 or more WAV files (~40 second long) to a new project, the playback becomes stuttered and some tracks will cut out for a few seconds. I don’t think this is a performance issue as i am able to run far more complex projects (20 VSTi, 100s of tracks and VSTs plugins) without any issue. How ever as soon as I create a new project and load in multiple long WAV files the playback becomes choppy, and i haven’t been able to work out why. The issue seems to be specific to playing multiple, long WAV files.

Any advice on what i could be doing wrong or how to remedy/work around this issue would be really appreciated.
