i did the update for 10.5.12 from C10 at the start of March.
no new plugin, no modification whatsoever, just the update on the computer side.
On the other side, i am working from home for a month, so i have some midi controller & interface missing ( motu express midi 128, 2 controllers )
and usually it freeze on this midi ports missing notification or on some of the last kontakt instruments ( but not the last ones )
i have a big worksation and a server ( NAS ) that host project folders / soundbanks / cubase project folders.
config is same as in studio, Computer / Gigabyte switch / server, no internet connection
my template is not super heavy, but i have 16G in RAM once loaded,
all instruments plugins turn off, all samples purged
i have 95 vsti loaded
all ressources intensive plugins turned off ( convolution rev etc… )
i run the engine @ 64 bits, and i do still have jbridge, and some bridged plugins in my template.
i know this can come from so many factors,
but how / where to investigate ?
because, before it was like 5 to 10 min depending of how the project was big to load.
now an empty project is like 10 minutes minmum to load…
