This is with REAPER 5.23 pre4 64 bit on Windows 10 64 bit.
Thanks for reporting. Can you please give me very specific details on what you do, so that I can try to reproduce? Something along the line of this:

<start of example>

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install v. 1.0.0.b9
2. Start Reaper (32-bit version)
3. Make a new project
4. Create a new track in project and make it 4 channels
5. Add a 4-channel B-format sound file to the track
6. Add <name of plugin>

Result: Takes ages for the plugin to load

</end of example>

Also it will be useful to know:

- What Windows version do you use?
- What version of Reaper (32-bit or 64-bit)?
- Does behaviour change if you do this in the other version of Reaper?
- Do you boot of an SSD disk or a regular disk?
- Do this happen the first time around only, or will it happen again if you then quit Reaper and repeat all of the steps except for the re-installing of ATK?

(I see that you've provided some of this info already)

The only thing that I can imagine that cause plugins to take longer to load is the introduction of dependency on CookDSP. This of course means that there are more header files, and if Reaper/system takes longer to locate, load and interpret those files, it might lead to lags.

I won't have the time to test out on Windows myself until sometime tomorrow. On OSX I have not noticed any particular lag myself, and certainly not in the many-seconds range. I have a 4-year old laptop with an SSD so if disk read is the issue here, I might have gotten away with it...
