    Default Traktor Pro startup speed tip!

    So there we were.

    Bento and I once again discussed the marvels of new midimappings, fx sidechaining, smartmixing, and new controllers over MSN while he was doing some awesome tweakage.

    After finishing his latest addition, he decided to give Traktor a whirl. CRASH!

    Bento had recently been suffering a frequent startup crash, so he decided to go oldschool on Traktor. He searched for the 'Settings' and 'Backups' folders in his My Documents folder, and moved them to a location elsewhere.

    He once again double clicked the Traktor Pro icon on his desktop and zooommmmmmmm, it started up like it was Jim Carrey on speed!

    He was amazed and could only utter:"Wow dude! You gotta try this eh?"
    He did a short recap and finished up with the magic words:"Dude, trust me. Not only did it fix my problem, it's like 10x faster starting up!"
    Being that I was still at work, only had 5 minutes left to go, I quickly signed off with:"Will be testing this when I get home!"

    As I got home, I flicked on my PC and after a quick virus software update that seemed to last ages, damn you Avast! I had to reboot.

    After the reboot Bento was already on my case. "Have you tried it already?"
    "No man, still trying to get my system up in a decent way."
    So actually he was telling me I was a lazy...

    I first did a regular boot, without the oldschool treatment and clocked it on 45 seconds. Which was actually one of my faster Traktor Pro startups.

    Quickly I navigated to my My Documents folder and moved the "backups" and "settings" folders elsewhere.
    I double clicked the Traktor Pro icon and was amazed too.

    An average of 26 seconds.

    So now I am still waiting on Bento to give me a superlative of something that goes really fast, and he is now the lazy one... That's karma eh mate?

    Okay, all prosa aside.

    =================================

    If you want Traktor Pro to startup almost a 40% faster, move your "Backups" and "Settings" folders from your "My Documents" folder. (In case of windows user)

    Might be interesting if people are willing to try this trick on Mac?

    Yay for killing two birds with one stone !

    Id still like to know what was causing it to not start up in the first place, but i guess that will be a mystery unsolved for now.

    If it worked on both mine and tekkis system i would say it should be able to help out a number of people.

    Opps....! I have my traktor folder setup like that too (on PC), and Traktor boots in 15 - 20 seconds. D:/Music/Traktor 3/... & :/Music/Traktor/

    On my macbook, traktor has no hang time when booting up

    I had an original boot up of about 6 seconds, it has not changed. Mind you, im not complaining at 6 seconds (thats from double click on the icon to pressing play on a track).

    ok ok, ill just try, im gonna re-install everything anyways

    Edit: Tried that, and now it seems to not start at all haha!

    Ok, ok, it took around 3 minutes to start first time around, then I shut it down and restarted, it took around 14 seconds to start up. I will reboot when my disk image is done, then I will let you know if it is "faster" still.
