Any way to speed up program loading?

CPU upgrade or something. 96 K programs loads 3-6 seconds on my i7 920.

I assume you updated to 1.3.12 (and maybe deleted the Temp folder)?

That update sped up loading a huge amount on my Windows 7 machine.

Think you mean 1.3.712 :).

But yeah, try deleting your temp folder and then relaunching your DAW (or properly reloading Nebula).

Some programs load faster than others because of the amount of samples they contain.

And if you're loading 96k programs into a 44/48/88 project, the samples will have to be resampled (which means CPU time).

If there is no resampling being done, the only thing affecting load time is harddisk speed (which can make a huge impact with some nebula programs being a few hundred megabyte ).

I have some long programs that take +/- 3 seconds to load, on a Core i7-860 overclocked. But those are the few programs that take that long, none take longer and most are within 0.5 second so to speak.
(not using a SSD drive, but using a raid0 array with two fast harddrives to get faster sequential transfer rates. If the partition is properly defragged it helps a lot. SSD would've been better though, but my Nebula library is quite huge :P).

Use RAID SDD for quick transfer from SDD to RAM, also use a good quality RAM. Look prices into AngelBird (http://www.angelbird.com/en/home/) or Intel (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ ... s-ssd.html).
SRC means use CPU, change to the lasted 4Gen Intel i7. SDD don't need defragmentation and SATA3 transfer rate can be achieved only with SSDs or Hybrid disks.

With 1.3.712 (thanks jorismak :) ) SATA3 and a modern SSD Nebula is now lightning fast loading for me!

Hi!
I'll reckon the old tip using Nebula setups (software by Zabukowski) still apply, although the last version of Nebula has sped up loading a lot lately?!

Nebula-setups or ways that are a lot like it help with inserting nebula on a track. What the poster is describing is after that, by loading (and switching between) programs.
