How to know when all instruments loaded? On large projects it take some minutes, but if I press play while not all instruments loaded, some kind of buffer is filled with notes that should be play and when instrument is completely loaded, these buffered notes are sent to instrument at one time.
It would be nice to have at least grayed screen without ability to start playing anything.
FL have his nice progress indicator showing what is loading.
If I understand Cubase a little bit deeper than user should, it knows only that plugin is loaded, but doesn’t know is all samples loaded in that plugin.
For example, HALion Symphonic Orchestra - plugin itself loads quickly, but when I load preset, plugin’s progress bar shows how hard is to load it. It takes some seconds. And if project have 15-25 symphonic instruments, I really try to start playing at least three times without all instruments loaded. Then I should reset MIDI because some notes stuck playing.
