I'd like to ask for an feature regarding performance. If you e.g. take Hollywood Strings it's 312GB in ~831k files. This is an average file size of 375kB.
My question/suggestion is why the samples of one instrument are not packed into one file. This would have the advantage that copying one library would be much faster and if you want to do a full virus scan the scanner would also run faster. (That's btw why I had the idea... a full scan takes 7h on my computer... :/) I don't know how it would impact the performance of Play. That's what the developers have to find out! ;)

Btw is the library compressed?
