The settings were the same. SRC was best quality sinc in both cases.
The A3 session had only three tracks and the A2 session over 30, but the
stereo track (range) being exported was identical in both sessions.

I just ran the export again to be sure and it wasn't quite as slow as
play speed after all, but it was still noticeably slower than in
A2. I also tried exporting without SRC and it was faster, but still quite
a bit slower than in A2 where it's almost instant.
