Re: Ableton 10 slow to load instruments, drums, rack etc...

Super slow for me too (on Mac)
Well, it takes about a minute to load a small live set in Live 10.0.2. It does not even contain M4L devices. It does contain samples, though. Why does it take so long to load?[jur] wrote:L10 is slower to load samples. That's fixed in the latest beta though.

And describe what you have installed, when it's slow and whether or not you've done the usual checks.
I did some tests previously, posted here, but this was well within the tolerable. It was, however, clearly slower in 10.0.2 compared 10.0.1. There may be reasons for that, but I can't say if those are acceptable until they are known.
Some suggestions for measurements, preferably the exact same thing in Live 10.0.1, 10.0.2 and 10.0.3b. are:
Share your data to Ableton and include reports and sets if possible. or just complain about the speed.
- Loading of a set.
- Loading a multiple samples
- Exporting a song
What are you on about? I've been in this discussion since page 1. You missed reading previous posts in full perhaps? I was obviously directing my comment to new reporters since.mbenigni wrote: Re: “just complain”, etc. - if you read the previous posts in full you’ll find that most of the questions are addressed which you imply are not.
But I don’t really have a horse in the race; I decided to stick with Live 8. I’m considering a jump to Cubase anyway.
For a guy who puts a premium on accurate reporting, you sure are hanging a lot of weight on "you guys".Stromkraft wrote:I was obviously directing my comment to new reporters since.
Fair enough, but the time context is there.mbenigni wrote:For a guy who puts a premium on accurate reporting, you sure are hanging a lot of weight on "you guys". :DStromkraft wrote:I was obviously directing my comment to new reporters since.
Yeah, but this is indeed very useful information you're adding to this now. There are execution times that under specific circumstances can be viewed as normal and not under others. I see you have a HDD. This of course reinforces any differences moving into the unacceptable.mbenigni wrote: For my part, the differences in timing were on orders of magnitude, and thus not worth measuring with any accuracy. E.g. actions that took 1-2 seconds in v8 taking 20 seconds or more in v10, with "Application Not Responding" in the meantime
The information in my last post was all covered when I initially chimed in on page 1 of this thread. Hence my comments earlier today. But I don't mean to beat a dead horse here. It's not really a huge deal. I'm sure the problem is specific to my configuration somehow; otherwise Live 10 never would have made it out of Beta. It's just that I was left with no reason to drop $280 on an "upgrade" that didn't appear to work for me. (I've since upgraded to an SSD, and it's likely Live 10 would work better now than it did before. But would it work better than Live 8 on the same SSD? With everything else beinq equal I'm inclined to doubt it, and I'm not really motivated to find the time to repeat the experiment.)Stromkraft wrote:Yeah, but this is indeed very useful information you're adding to this now.

Have you experienced any issues with Live 10 taking a while to load instruments drum, pretty much anything from the browser on the left hand side? Just dragging in an instance of Simpler or Drum rack sometimes takes 5-10 seconds, where as Ableton 9 was pretty quick. I've also noticed much longer wait times to load even small projects.
Ableton runs on a Samsung SSD drive, and my library including the core files are on another 7200 RPM drive, could that be the issue? I've tried several things like making sure the library doesn't point to too many folders on my drive, as I've heard that can slow things down significantly due to Ableton indexing the samples.
I've got a good computer in terms of specs, more than what I need really.
Problem persisted for me after an update to Windows 10. (Live 8 is very quick on the same build.) The reset suggestion didn't work. I'm skeptical of the claim (above) that 10.0.3 resolved, since people are still having issues with 10.0.5. I've only tested the Live 10 demo version, and I don't know how far forward that has been patched.akela wrote:I just noticed this problem today. Instruments take ~10s to load but this wasn't an issue before. It's making me wonder if it's related to the most recent update to my current build number. I haven't really touched Live in the past couple of weeks, but the difference was immediately noticeable. Is it possible to roll back versions?
That said, I followed the Live 10 reset suggestion, and it made no difference whatsoever. Was super annoying though!
Happy to try anything, really.
