I have a Powermac G5 dual 2 Ghz machine with 1 Gig of Ram running the latest version of Panther, Logic Pro 6.4, and the most recent update of GPO. I've set up an entire orchestra in Logic inserting multiple instances of GPO's bundled Kontakt player. The problem I have is in the excruciatingly slow loading times every time I launch Logic. Is this normal and if not, has the problem been addressed by Native Instruments? (I know it's been mentioned before, but I couldn't find any posts indicating that there has yet been a solution found).
Also annoying is the fact that when I want to switch back and forth between an open Logic song that DOESN'T require GPO and one that does (for example, to copy certain midi parameters from one file to another), the GPO sounds are VERY SLOWLY re-loaded each time I switch back to the GPO song, even if just for a moment. I also (naively) assumed that I could have two GPO orchestra songs set up simultaneously, and that the sounds wouldn't have to be re-loaded for both songs, since they were accessing the same patches, but I now presume this also to be incorrect? Thanks for any insight!
