As the number of patches increases, so does the time to rebuild the patch database. It would be good if the possibility existed to rebuild it partially e.g. for a specific library.

Most people only need to rebuild the DB when a new library is added. Even with approximately 3,000 patches, it only takes my rusty, old 2010 Mac Pro 5,1 about 10 seconds to do a complete rebuild. Are you having issues where you need to rebuild the DB more frequently or that it's taking too much time complete?

I have Unified all my O2 libraries and libraries from some other synths as Breaktweaker and Kontakt. I am using some scripts I have develped to automate the process and it requires some trial and error 😀. Hence the reason to rebuild more often than normally. At the moment I have almost 9.200 .unify files in 42 libraries. At the moment it takes 2 minute and 15 sec to rebuild the db. I am totally aware that this not is an important feature so it is not a big deal. 😊

Sounds like you've been experimenting with optimizing the database to better serve your needs just like I have. I wonder how many of us are out there. 🙂

@karlfranz, @thsve

I've been talking with John about the idea of somehow allowing users to import/export/share databases, or indexing schemes/rules, etc. It's not obvious how this ought to be done, but I'm open to suggestions.
