I am not using any samplers, so no big sample libraries to load. Just guitar amp sims, effects and a few Cab IRs (small file size samples).
I do replicate most parameters in widgets though, so I got loads of them in my rackspaces.
About 7 rackspaces, low number of variations, 42 Songs.
My Gig File (which is around 600KB) needs a little more than 1 minute to load on my 2017 MB Pro. It’s very long and as annoying as warming up an amp with tubes on standby before you can play it.
What is causing the long loading time? The many widgets? The maybe 40 plugins I am using? The number of songs? The Cab IRs?
What would I have to simplify to make it quicker?
