I’ve had this issue ever since vst3 plugins came onto the scene, where loading plugins in a Cubase project takes 20-30 seconds before the gui appears. Noticed that this is likely a Windows 10 issue as the same thing happens in Studio One 5 Artist and Vegas Pro 17. No other manufacturer’s plugin does this.
Just discovered today that disabling internet (in my case disabling the ethernet adaptor in Windows 10) dramatically speeds up the load time.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why being on the internet causes Waves plugins to load up so slowly whilst other plugin manufacturers don’t exhibit this problem? Would love to use Waves v12 without constantly connecting/disconnecting if possible (although I’m now glad that the plugins are somewhat usable now in a workflow).
Windows 10 64 bit running Cubase 11 Pro and Waves v12.
