@ffx: yeah SSD makes an amazing difference, doesn't it?
For performance reasons, we're initializing multiple libraries simultaneously only when they are located on different drives
(this is also why symlinking on non-SSD drives can actually worsen the performance).
Thanks I'll try it
But it's a shitty workaround for what seems like a more fundamental problem. Hmm.
Is there any way to set where the database is built? I am having read-only problems with my samples folder. For some reason however I change the permissions, it cannot write the database
Have you tried the simplest possible approach, copying over the files into a new folder? I guess so.
What happens if you try with just a few samples, on different drives?
Sounds like either the application has somehow not got enough privileges, or your HDD has very restrictive access.
But it's anyone's guess - I know I have a few folders on my machine that are impossible to delete, for whatever reason.
It's a shame that you've been missing out for so long - I've been using some of your libraries for testing and evaluating results, during development.
And I can vouch for the results - Sononym does a mostly good job at understanding your samples
