Since Muse has no "out of the box" audio widget, I assume, you are using a 3rd party widget? Which one is it? Did you contact the vendor of this widget?
the only widget I use is the normal audioplayer widget by 123musewidget.com now musegrid.com. I will contact them, but do you think it's the reason for loading so slow?
I would prefer to use the Soundcloud-Player widget, but the client wants the mp3 to be downloadable...
• Do you use other 3rd party widgets?
• Did you try to delete your preloader widget for a test? Perhaps this widget is responsible for waiting, until all data are loaded.
I think, the images on your site don’t justify long loading times. They aren’t really big. So, only the mp3 files are left …
• In addition, I’d try to publish the site as a test site to Business catalyst without any sound files to see, what happens …
yes, i deleted the preloader, but without succsess...
I will try again.
I also tried out several alternative Uploads, also on Business Catalyst, it is the same.... I agree with you – the mp3s are the problem – The site without the mp3 needs just about 4 sec for loading. So iI will go away from the on-pager, and give the samples an own site, but this is not a satisfying solution...
Could you perhaps try the new MuseThemes audio widget: https://www.muse-themes.com/products/audio-playlist-widget
Perhaps it loads its data more intelligently. (I assume, it does. Because the single tracks show a loading bar, when activated.)
On my side the loading time is about 2 to 5 seconds, then it is complete. Do I miss something?
I encounter the same immens loading times as partrick says. (iMac, macOS 10.12.4., Safari, Chrome)
Loading time for the Site before I can start to click menus? Or loading time for "Hörbeispiele"?
The first loading took as said before. Now it took 10 seconds. I can listen immediatetely with no waiting. OS 10.10.5, MBP late 2011, Safari 10.1, Chrome Version 57.0.2987.133 (64-bit).
Altogether good performance. Very good performance.
I have to wait for at least 2 minutes until I see the images an can open the accordion to see the mp3 players.
(Do you sell your MBP?)
Never change a horse during the race . Since 2011 it got a new motherboard twice. Paid from Apple. I think I keep it. I wait for iMac another month or so. Until patrick from hamburg ´s site loads quickly on your machines as well.
I also keep 10.10.5. , I guess .
Firefox 52.0.2 (64-Bit) – 22 seconds. Not that bad.
What kind of machine does your client use, if I am allowed to ask patrick from hamburg ?
Hi, check the picture:
Your server needs 23.99 second to deliver 15.9 MB content where have 112 requests...
Also you haven't configured your server -for example to compress the content- and I believe you haven't configured the server to run properly. PageSpeed for a good server is around 0.7 sec (min) and 2.0 sec (max).
If you are online anyway Preran, could you have a look at this?
We have big difference in loading times.
DimitrisGR had a look for loading time on serverside and requests.
Also Günter Heißenbüttel had a look.
My machine is "old" and fast, theirs are new and slow?
I have a new machine on a high speed network and it took me around 10 seconds to load the page in Chrome, and around 90 seconds on Edge.
The text loads just fine. It looks like the images and the widgets are taking time.
I would recommend looking at the size of the images, and also removing the widgets one by one to see if any of them is causing this issue.
Guys check with Google Chrome the Network Tab and look at 'Waterfall'...
Also check Google Webmaster Tools with PageSpeed...
No matters if you have an old or new machine. A page of 16MB and 112 Requests (that means server have to do 112 trips till render the page).
Number of requests means how many objects of pics, video files, audio files, fonts, css, scripts etc have your page and the server must go find them into paths, load them and render your page. You can combine many of them in 1 file or you can delete them (its up to you to decide what you need ).
Dimitris, I don’t think, this is the main cause for the loading delay. I know Muse sites with much more load streams working well.
Your statement " You can combine css files into 1 css file and inline it on your html page." shows quite clearly, that you obviously aren’t working with Muse. Am I right?
90% of my works are in Muse... But I have 20 years exp with Dreamweaver and Coldfusion when products belongs to Macromedia. My first eshop was with Macromedia Flash and after that was with Macromedia Flex. But the last 6 years everything is under Muse with extended code via widgets. (Sorry for my weak English). Also I can not remember how many servers I have set-up, how many Google PageSpeeds I had complete etc... Check the picture where I 've post before and take a close view in 'Waterfall'. You will see the load time for every single element.

I think, your tip went into the right direction:
The AUDIO PLAYER I used loaded all MP3 at once when entering the site – it caused the immense delay! So for website to present multiple tracks I really can’t recommend this audio player by 123muse.com. Meanwhile the Company of this archaic audioplayer – now musegrid.com – told me, that it is out-of-date (I bought it in the end of 2015, 1,5 years ago)...
I tried out another Player (by musetemplates.com) – a playlist player, I bought before, but didn’t were used because the amount of songs are limited to max. ten songs, and also it is not possible to show, more than one playlist on one single site. But now I choose this Playlistplayer and decided to go away from the one-pager, and separated the sites were samples are presented.
For now, I see no better possibility to follow my clients wishes. Now the refreshed site needs 1,5 sec to load instead of 60 sec (see attachments), and the client is happy!
Thank you all, for your helping thoughts, Ideas, input!
Patrickby the way: During my research, I tested the „Toneden Player” from museforyou shop – I bought him last week, and the player is also out-of-date and doesn‘t work with newer versions of muse – this is what John Ramos from museforyou shop then confirmed. Would have been nice, to know this before bying this scrap...
Slow version with old audioplayer:
New version with Audioplaylist:
