This was in another thread but I thought it deserved its own.
Sam, Hans - I installed the entire xsample library on a brand new hard drive, and I spent fifteen minutes trying to figure out what was wrong with my new drive.
Even single instruments - even single, non-velocity-mapped, single-dimension, short-sampled instruments (like some of the percvussion stuff) - take longer to load than the gigpiano. Hell, even seemingly (didn\'t test) longer than some nice alternatives on my hardware samplers.
Glad to hear I\'m not the only one with the problem but... short loading time is one of the main advantages of GS over my hardware samplers. I get worried when a library comes out like xsample that makes me long for the short loading times of my hardware samplers.
Hoping it\'s not the start of a trend...
P.S. That said there are some keepers in the library to be sure...
