Live 9 sets take very much time to load

How can I speed up the loading time of a set? Live 9 takes almost a minute to load a set, Live 8 was a bit quicker.

Does it help to de-install max 4 live?

    Mine takes 10 minutes for the program to load.  Then takes about 15 minutes to load a live set.  By that time I just switch it off cos I am too pissed off.  Not what I bought a brand new Macbook and Ableton for.  Sent my reports to Ableton but no results.

    This is already with a ssd drive.

    1 minute feels very long when you're doing a live gig and wait for the next set to load.

    I think load times were much smaller with Live 8.

    Like out grandpas always say: live was better in the past... ;-)

    I'm wondering if it depends of the size of your library (core + packs + user)???

    I have a macbook pro 2.3 I7 and it takes an age to load up sometimes 5 minutes

    even longer with max for live. 

    however once it has loaded switching between tracks isn't so bad.

    I have a mac pro on snow leopard and it loads pretty quick.

    any thoughts?

    It's VERY slow (32-Bit, Ver 9.1.1) to simply start the program on my i5 iMac with 16gb of ram. Nothing else open. 8 was 10x faster.

    @Shadow Son, was this resolved? If so, could you post the solution? This started happening to me and I reset Live, then I was able to load a set I hadn't been able to load before. Instructions are here:

    Thanks!

    This depends on your hard drive RPM speed. 1 minute is honestly not that long at all! If you want a really really quick load i would suggest getting a solid state drive (if you can afford it that is ;D)
