Hybrid SSD are cheaper with the benefit of using SSD for the temporary cache of familiar files / routes for quicker access, I'm considering this at the moment for my laptop.

I watched a Reason 7 introductory tutorial on YouTube where Mattias mentioned something about file access times, can't remember for certain but i vaguely remember it being addressed in the q&a at the end as a development for 7.5 although 7 has vast improvements on many of the algorithms used in 6&6.5 like quantize, shuffle and alter patch etc

Also, if I open one of the last songs in the File

takes several minutes just to get to the list of
saved songs!
Yeah man. It was painfully slow when I had a much slower computer. Now it's just slow. And I've upgraded from a HP 2.2 Ghz Dual Core Windows PC to a Mac i7 Quad core 3.6 Ghz I agree with most everything I've read on this subject. You shouldn't have to wait 5 sec. (spinning rainbow circle) just for your song folder to open...or 7 sec to browse for a sound or patch. I think they should have, since long ago...maybe v5, integrated some "drag and drop" type of format as well. The fact that you have to open a window for everything in and of itself makes browsing slower. I think FL Studio and Logic have the right idea on this matter.

Browsing for Refills is THE MOST painful of all browsing!!!!!! I agree that this issue should have been addressed long before. Everyone is crying for VST support. I think this issue need not be ignored any longer. This particular aspect is what makes Reason's ....this or that.."to inspire"...non-inspirational.

I was having this issue as well. What I did was to move ALL of my refills into the installation directory of Reason in their own folder and that seems to have speeded things up dramatically.

C:\Program Files\Propellerhead\Reason\"name of your folder with Refills in it....but organize them!"

They were previously on the same drive but in a different location. After doing this things really picked up speed. However, it's definitely a super workflow killer to not be able to browse the sounds instantaneously. I could see if it were a folder that had 1000's of refills in there not in their own directories. Windows explorer itself doesn't handle massive amounts of files like that so hard to expect Reason not to have issues if you were silly enough to plop all refills into one directory. Not sure if that will help anyone out until the Propellerheads fix this issue. It's bread and butter stuff like this that has really taken me by surprise as a new user of the software.
