Thanks Peter. This is an important hint!] Peter:H [ wrote: ↑Fri Dec 13, 2019 7:57 amIcarus2 loads fine - Load time until GUI shows, Win10, i7 4Ghz, 64bit, 32GB Ram, Bitwig 3.1 - about 1 Second.
In Bitwig please use the "Together" mode for hosting plugins (settings page) - it will host all plugins together in one of the background Plugin processes. There are other modes with better "isolation" against plugin crashes, but these modes are more expensive in terms of resource utilization.
And because I have fallen into this trap myself very often one comment - it's often an OSI Layer 8 Problem. I recommend to check your OSI Layer 8!
Have fun making music with Icarus2 - Cool Synth!

If several instances of Icarus or other Tone products are used they share their identical resources (waveforms, wavetables, images etc). Sharing resources reduces the required RAM as well speeds up the loading time.
If the hosts prevents the sharing by isolating the processes it can have a negative effect on the loading time.
Have a nice weekend,
