I've just installed bitwig on a brand new macbook pro. I have no vst plugins installed and I haven't downloaded any of the factory content, yet I'm finding its taking around 45s for bitwig to launch. This goes down to around 10s with wi-fi disabled. Any ideas as to why this is?

After some digging, changing my DNS to google ( / openDNS ( and resolved this.

macOS Sierra upgrade caused a delay loading and other delays for example when dragging clips.

These were associated with specific network settings according to Bitwig. All slowdowns fixed with later Bitwig 1.3.14 and later upgrades.

Thanks for the response, but I was experiencing the issues in 1.3.14 & 1.3.15.
