So I was hinting on the TRITON VST thread that I encountered some issues.
For the context, I’m still transitioning from VIP as my host, taking advantage of the 1 month trial. I’m on a fast SSD laptop with 16GB of RAM.
So I compare songs loading in Cantabile vs in VIP. I saved the same Triton patch as a bare song in Cantabile (with just routing from the main keyboard) and in a simple patch in VIP.
Loading the song in Cantabile takes 3s~4s
Loading the patch in VIP is < 1s
This is the default piano sound of the TRITON which is a 16MB sample. So obviously, it’s more about the plugin itself than the sample payload.
If I take a very simple sample based patch in Omnisphere, again, it takes <1s to load in VIP and 3~4s in Cantabile.
Things get really messy if I take a heavy Keyscape sound such as the LA Custom C7 or the Wurlitzer 200A, it takes 2~3s to load in preview mode in VIP.
With Cantabile, most of the times, it never comes up… I have to double click on the plugin, which loads its GUI, and there, select again the sound (double click the already highlighted patch). Then it finally enters preview mode instantly.
I have tried changing the preset mode for Omnisphere but I had the same results.
I have not the issue with other Omnisphere libraries. Only Keyscape.
Now the better part: if I activate “Pre-Load” mode for the set list, everything loads fine in Cantabile! And of course, song switching is instant after that.
So Keyscape is not really usable for me with Cantabile unless I’m in Pre-Load mode.
What am I doing wrong here?
