Had same issue, narrowed it down to Slate VMR plugin.

Removing VMR = session load time halved!

Default Re: Very slow loading sessions

When I start PT I open a blank session first create an audio track and load Slate VMR on that track. After it loads I close the session and open the session(s) I need after that. It a hassle sure enough but after that one blank session every session after loads normally. If you still have problems try trashing your preferences and (or) data bases.

Very interesting:) Right now my sessions take about 5 minutes from the time I click on the pt icon. After removing the Slate VMR it takes less than half that time. So , I need the VMR so I guess I have to live with the annoying wait time. thanks for all your replys

Everytime my sessions take that long I have to trash my preferences....so I know what your talking about. Maybe try a clean install of PT.

Same here. Slate is the culpit. I contacted them about this months ago. Nothing have happened. I don't use Slate anymore. Too bad.
