Excessive RAM usage at startup

• Aug 28, 2018 - 14:26

Sir, since the recent update to version 2.3.2, there has been a significant difference in the initiation of musescore.
My system has a 2GB RAM and the memory consumption exceeds 1.3 GB at runtime, CPU usage 50% (Intel Pentium B950 @ 2.10 GHz) and won't startup until several minutes.
However, after startup, the program stabilizes at approx. 65 MB.

I imagine faster machine than mine might be able to load the MDL soundfonts in only 40 seconds. Anyhow, if the slow startup is a concert, removing those soundfonts should address it. Then you can write your music just fine even if it won't playback correctly. Add the soundfonts back (and wait the 40 seconds) when you need to hear the final playback.
