This is driving me crazy… I just pinged Steinberg support with this, so rather than re-write the whole thing, I’ll paste it here:
I just bought an SSD to speed up Cubase load times. It s been really, really good for that! But, all of a sudden, as I m installing plugins, the MIDI initialization phase on startup is grindingly slow. It s so slow it defeats the whole purpose of having spent $675 on a high end SSD. Load time is now completely unacceptable, slower than when I had it on the regular HDD!
It wasn t like this before; I had a good 2/3 of my pretty substantial plugin collection installed, and everything was great. Today, I m probably over 3/4 of the way there, and suddenly this starts happening.
Why is it doing this? Any help would be much appreciated…
So, anyone have anything like this happen recently? I hope Steinberg has something to say about it, but if any of you all know anything, please let me know! I’d really, truly appreciate any help on this… losing my mind over here uninstalling and reinstalling and de-activating devices/ports… please stop me before I do something stupid out of frustration!
