Faster File Browser !!!!!
 
An example.
I open the file browser on Thor.
It takes about 15-20 seconds until the window opens.
The next step is to choose a different directory.
This will take 15-20 seconds again.

Same in NN19 if I want to load a WAV file.
I have directories with 1000 Kick Drums / Snaredrums / hihats and more
It takes 20 seconds and more to view the contents of these directories,
where my wavefiles are in.

Selecting the main folder (c: \ Program Files \ Propp .. \ Reason)
always takes much too long! (20 sec)

or is this normal (in Reason)?????


With Cubase and Fruityloops this goes in 250ms?!

it's normal in Reason .... yhea I know I'm Swiss so I can tell when it's sloooooooooooooow!
ssd or spliting in smaller files are one of the solutions !
in wich place you have them sounds ? it may be a wrong place watch out !

devilfish 2012-10-05 11:38

okay, I'm not surprised about that.
the place can´t be wrong.. in FL-Studio its fast (250ms to open folders and show the content, cubase also.)

to open another song, it takes 27 seconds!
just to open the window. after clicking on file open to choose a song.
(not to load the song)!!

all my Refills and Patches are in the Reason Folder. ~80GB on Refill stuff and Patches.

My Samples are on C:\SamplingCD\ XXX
sorted in (i think) 50-60 subfolders (Kicks/Snares/hihats/bongos/Congas/Tablas/Rim/Crashes/bass/pads/leads/etc.pp.)
round about 180GB one shot samples ;-)

spliting is no solution for me..
but an Solid State Drive (SSD) :D

Mushkin Chronos 2,5" SSD 480 GB for 294€ :D
okay i think i have to order one.. or two^^

and it is sure that it goes faster then? with a SSD ????
this is no "reason progamm-code" problem ??

If you will have less files in folder Reason opens faster. I think its doing something with file cash.

Yes please fix this its really,really slow especially on the first browse.
And pretty dang slow all the way! +1

I have a fairly new system and nothing helps, of course its fast with just the reason sound banks but that's a little limited isn't it?
Props please look into this.
Thanks

I also found the browser slow. +1 on adding a SSD.

SSDs are not cheap, but will transform the way you use Reason. Loading the program too, when you just want a quick fix.

But keep your music creations on a HDD. SSDs are not as reliable.

I have i7 computer and 8gb ram AND a SSD HD and well its faster but still to slow fore my me.

devilfish 2012-10-06 22:44

So it is normal that this is so slow? and in version 6.5 yet?

guys! changes the times! very quickly! that's not true?

to load a wav or other patchfile takes 2x20sec ...???????!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous .. I love this program .. There is nothing to complain about .. but this is really ridiculous!

devilfish 2012-10-15 17:06

Agreed. It is slow for me as well.

I'd imagine it is slower for people who use a lot of samples and probably a lot faster for folks who mainy program their synths and use the factory soundbank.

But Reason has the slowest browser I have worked with out of all the other DAWs.
