I'm disappointed in this product. It sounds wonderful, but it takes aeons to load. It's literally the slowest plugin I've ever used in my entire life. The UVI Player is much slower to load than loading a 2GB library in Kontakt from a 7200RPM hard drive via Firewire 800. By the time the plugin opens, I no longer want to use it anymore for the sheer fact that I never want to deal with it again.

If they could DRASTICALLY speed up the UVI Player, this would be a 9 or 10-star instrument. As it is, I give it a 2.

I am EXTREMELY frustrated. Can you tell?
