Just had the chance to load an older 2017 made RT complex song into 2018-v508, and in 2017 v470. Generating the song was about 3 times faster in 2017, and speed up was marked active in 2018 .... something not working? -F

Fiddler,

On the above graphic, I notice that the quality for pitch/tempo stretching is set to 'high'. This will also affect regeneration speed. Was this setting the same in 2017? (If I recall correctly, the default setting is 'medium'.)

Regards,
Noel

Hi Noel. I had medium selected first, does not make much difference ... also the song file used for testing was at the RT's 100 bpm speed anyway ... F

Does that happen with a specific song file? I tested _BALFRED.SGU. On this computer it took about 3 seconds for the song to start playing, with both 2017 and 2018...

I'll PM you a songfile, to support, and frozen. With (generating defrosted) BIAB 2018 508 it takes around 16 seconds, and with BIAB 2017 about 5 to start playback ..... F
