Is there a way to keep clip plugins from loading into computer memory when a montage is opened? It could be done in Wavelab 6 by pressing ctrl-alt-shift when opening the montage, which always opened to the Edit tab and didn’t load the plugins. Then files could be rendered from the montage without doubling the memory used.
I can’t find a way to do this in Wavelab 8 because the plugins always load on montage open, and then double for the render. In a montage with many memory intensive plugins it makes a big difference. The only way I could find around it is to Batch the montage, but that’s not going to be practical for me.
The worst case is something like the 6 plug Izotope Ozone, which seems to use about 350-400 MB per instance. It’s not really practical to use many instances, but doubling memory load for a render makes things that much worse, when it could be done without doubling in Wavelab 6.
I’ve tried changing every preference without change. Is there a hidden system pref that could be modified, or an unknown key sequence? If not is this something that could be added as an option in the next version of Wavelab (“don’t load plugins on montage open”)?
