I import a lot of mp3 files everyday. Studio One is very slow at that. What I do is I convert my MP3s to WAVs before importing. I use a free converter. bleep? Free converter does it A WAY FASTER than a super hi-end DAW? This is RIDICULOUS!

How fast do you expect it to go? I just converted 113 mp3 files in under a 1:20. It'll take me 10 seconds to convert 16 mp3 files.

Maybe it could be your external hardrives.

WELL, now try to make a 48 kHz project) and import 41 kHz MP3 there) you'll see the difference.

You want me to import 44.1kHz mp3s into a 48khz session? I'll do that right now.

Ok, so yeah, importing the same 113 44.1 khz mp3s into a 48khz session will take me an hour. To remedy that problem, I'll just import the samples into a 44.1 khz session then after you finishing importing, change the sample rate to 48 khz.

Yeah, you can always change ample rate of a song later. But anyway the fact is: S1 is very slow at converting between different sample rates. It can't import things in background (like Pro Tools).
