Whenever I start Audacity, it takes over 9 seconds for it to start. It’s way too slow when I have to work with lots of wav files through the day. Sound Forge Pro 13 opens in 3 seconds, and it scans my plugins while starting, so If I disable them, even faster.
Audacity opens fast if I open another instance, so it’s always the first instance that starts really slow. Any tips? I did try disabling all the plugins, and tried changing from MME to DirectSound and WASAPI, but nothing affected the slow startup time. I remember that I noticed the slow startup first when Audacity 3 came out, I did try installing 2.4.2 today but it also started slow, maybe they are sharing some files, I dont know. Is there some terminal window where I can see what audacity is doing while it’s starting and why it is hanging? Two of my friends told me that their Audacity starts in 2 seconds.
