When I drag a wav file into Sound Forge (Mac version), it takes ages to load up. It's getting slower every week too. Then when I go to load a plugin, that also takes ages. It's quick to process the file after that but the load time is so long. I only ever have Sound Forge running too, so there's nothing else running in the background.
Just timed it and it took 38 seconds to load a wav file and then 1:14 to load up a plugin. (I often need to process 60+ files in one go, so that's 2 hours wasted just waiting for it to load up). Both these processes were pretty much immediate when I bought SoundForge back in March.
I am using the same computer, the same operating system and have recently cleared out my hard drive. Is there anything I can do to make it as fast as it was 9 months ago?
My setup: Sound Forge Pro Version 3.0.0 (Build 100), iMac with macOS Mojave Version 10.14.6,4.2 GHz Intel Core i7, Memory: 32GB 2400 MHz DDR4, and I am processing 48KHz, 16 bit, stereo files.
