Default Reaper slow every time I switch back to it from another app.

I work in post production, and have decent to large sized sessions with lots of media items.

I have to work in other apps too, like Soundminer (media explorer isn't a complete replacement).

Every time I switch away from Reaper, the media items go "offline", and every time I switch back to Reaper, it looks like it compares the waveforms again, and it hangs up for several seconds before I can do anything. I get the Mac beach ball for 5-8 seconds or so.

I see a few options I can turn off like faint waveform in folder tracks, but thats one of the things I use a lot. Even if I turn off peaks for media items, it still hangs for a few seconds when I switch back to Reaper. Its a little quicker but I need it to be snappy.

Is there any way to stop Reaper from going offline when I switch to another app? I feel like if I can stop that from happening it will improve this.

Found it:

Prefs > Media > Set Media Items Offline when Applications is not active.

Unchecking this helps a LOT. I can't believe I put up with this for so long. Its been such a momentum killer. The deeper I get into a project the slower it got.

One little checkbox makes all the difference. Sooooo much better!
