Very slow start up and very slow song loading

Postby AfterlifE » Sun Nov 17, 2013 11:04 am

Recently I ran into a problem with Mixcraft 6, when I start the program it really bogs down and takes about a minute to completely load, then when I open up a song file it takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes. What could be the causes of this? I also use other DAW's that load fine so it's not a Windows problem. Mixcraft 6 has always worked fine up till now.

If you're running other DAW's, have you set Mixcraft to search their folders for VST's? This will slow up MC by a considerable amount. If you can, set up a single VST folder for all of the DAWs to share, that way they're only searching in one place.

I've always had the same settings for the VST search, but what about songs loading slowly as well?

do you possibly have an antivirus running & scanning all the folders/files associated w/ the startup,vst's,& song?

if so,check for any recent antivirus updates.

Hi,

If you make a song with no third-party plugins, does it also load slowly?
