Hi folks,

As the subject says-lately the Vienna Ensemble Service (64 bit) now starts as it's own application every time I start my DAW.  It used to not do this unless I opened a project that specifically has VEP running.  How to I stop this?  I also have the paid version of VEP6, so I'm not sure that I even need this free version at all?

I am having the same issue and was hoping that after a couple of months (I started getting this issue around february/march with one of the last updates) I would see some people complaining on this forum.

Now, every time I launch cubase, it waits for the VE software to load the GUI, which slows down the startup process significantly. I would love to have a solution for this problem. Is there an option to turn the GUI off when cubase is cycling through its list of plugins?

I'm afraid that's part of the VST plug-in routine when scanning plug-ins  - with VE, to check functionality, it opens the SERVICE in the background. 

2 options I can see: 

1) Move the plug-in out of your plug-in folder when you don't need it  OR create a VST plug-in folder just for VE and add that folder whenever you need it). 

2) Get Vienna Ensemble PRO (which is NOT opening a SERVICE, as the the VE PRO Server needs to be started manually) and use it instead of Vienna Ensemble (comes with a lot of benefits as well). 

Sorry to have no fix available right now.

it didn't do that before, so why change the behaviour? launching the service on cubase launch makes no sense to me and I don't really want to bother messing around with my VST folder too much, as it's also taking time. so there is no real win with this workaround. thanks anyways. I guess I will be slowly transitioning to a different sample library from now on :(
