Cantabile now includes some considerable improvements to the speed of the plugin scanner .
Depending on what’s in your library of plugins you can typically expect about a 30% improvement but in some cases I’ve seen it run more than twice as fast.
For the technically curious, this is what’s been changed:
- When scanning shell plugins (ie: Waves), the plugin library is kept loaded across all the shell’s sub-plugins. This saves unloading and reloading the library for each plugin.
- Less initialization code. — the scanner no longer calls effOpen as part of the scan.
Let me know — I’d be curious to hear what results others get from these improvements and whether there’s any change in the stability of the plugin scanner.
Available now in build 3213 and later.
