Lazy loading

If you are working with large sample libraries or if you use an old computer, you can turn on lazy loading in SuperDirt as mentionned here.

What is lazy loading?#

Instead of loading all your audio samples in the RAM as usual, SuperDirt will load audio samples on request. This is better for people working with a limited amount of memory.

How to turn it on?#

To enable it, update SuperDirt to the last commit (go into the downloaded-quarks/SuperDirt folder then git pull) then, in the SuperDirt startup code, before any ~dirt.loadSoundFiles call, put a ~dirt.doNotReadYet = true;.

That's it. It should work without problems.
