This is simply amazing. I’m really enjoying the new Slate Mic, but DAMN. Cubase took forever to start up and even longer to shut down. I noticed the LDSvc.exe process was having a field day. I really wish they just didn’t install those additional modules that I could care less about. I have plenty of plugins. No need to annoy me.
Another hot tip is to add all your project folders (and maybe even the entire system drives) as Windows Defender/Antivirus excluded folders. That was another thing SERIOUSLY slowing down quite a few operations… mainly with Kontakt libraries.
What a friggin difference. I just went from super pissed to delighted in the last 30 minutes. Attached is a screenshot of the Slate folder after deleting all the stuff that wasn’t included with the VMC ML-1.
I mean… what’s the purpose of a dongle when:
A) You have to own the hardware for the VMS stuff to really work right
B) SInce when did PACE or dongles ever really stop software cracks? NEVER.
- for good measure -
C) Microsoft sucks with its over-bearing “we shall protect you… we know better than you” antivirus mess…
