Cubase 8 and Kontakt 5 opening Very SLOW

Post by burtmakai » Mon Jun 01, 2015 10:05 pm

Hey there,

So all of a sudden loading a Cubase 8 file take for-e-ver. Like 5 minutes long. Sometimes it freeze around loading recorded audio sometimes around loading HSSE Main but it's inconsistent. The files are only about 3-14 MB large.

Then once it opens it take about 10 minutes to load about 2GB of instruments into Kontakt 5.3. Cubase will also freeze once it tries to open Kontakt for about 2 minutes,

I created all these files in Cubase 8.

Any ideas what I can do? It never used to be this slow.

I've uploaded a picture of where it gets stuck. However there is very little audio there and it seems to do it on other files too.

Exactly the same here.
I first noticed it when I was in a project and I clicked on the icon which opens up your instrument panel - instead of Kontakt opening as usual, the curser turned into the little blue circle of doom. ABout 2 minutes later, Kontakt opened up...
Now, when I load a project it takes forever for the Kontakt-based instruments to open!

Please help!!!

Do you happen to have Windows Defender enabled on the sample drive?
I had the same problem with a couple of very large Kontakt Multis and the problem went away when I disabled Windows Defender on the sample drive. Another thing you can try is batch resaving the Kontakt library that takes forever to load. Make a backup of the library before batch resaving it, because there are a few libraries that are messed up by the batch resaving process.
Hope this helps

Same problem here with cubase 9.5 and win 10. Whenever i open kontakt and also some other vsts(omnisphere for example) the gui freezes for a minute. And this is before even loading any libraries! Just the plugin. In FL studio and Bitwig those plugins open as they should, so i would guess its a problem in cubase.
It s a real killer for my workflow..
