Hi there Steinberg.
I just need to know, is The media bay really supposed to be this slow to use or am I missing something?
For me, all it needs to do is be able to scroll through your sounds instantly as you select each one, listening to them while you have your track playing in the background but it just can’t seem to cope with this & that really ruins your work rate.
The speed & way it works in the import Audio function is fine but you can’t have the track playing in the background.
You can do this in kontakt which is excellent but the media bay has to think about most samples before it plays them & this is a HUGE DRAWBACK!
I have recently purchased Halion 4 which I love but it needs to be able to audition samples as fast as Import Audio or Kontakt otherwise it’s a headache.
Please please sort this out.
The funny thing is sometimes (depending on samples) & a little while ago it seemed to be ok but lately has really slowed down & becme almost unusable. Just opening mediabay causes the world to come to a standstill & dare I try to open a folder in it because of the time it takes to be able to work again. Even going through small drum sounds like Kicks & snares it seems to have to re-load each one before playing.
I use the auto play & the arrow keys because this was the fastest way & did what I needed but now this is too slow.
Any ideas anyone??? ( I have tried trashing the media bay prefs but it’s still doing it)
Please Steinberg sort this out.
Kind regards, Codsworth
