    I discovered this while messing with Ample Sound plugins in order to create a symlink version for myself.

    Like in Kontakt, you can change the pre-load buffer size of the samples. But there's no explicit option anywhere. So if you go where the settings are stored:
    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Ample Sound\ (%USERPROFILE% means C:\Users\Xupito in an English Windows for the current user Xupito)

    Then to your installed plugin, like AGLP, and open this file with a text editor:
    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Ample Sound\AGLP\Configs\AGLP_info.xml

    You'll see this line:
    <VALUE name="BufSize" val="22050"/>
    I changed it to 11025:
    <VALUE name="BufSize" val="11025"/>

    Proof of concept (just because it sounds cool :disco:):

    NOTE: for users of version 2 plugins, the same applies but to a different folder. AME2 example:
    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Ample Sound\AME2_info.xml
