Does anyone else experience this. My config
CUBX at 133mhz
Win98SE, virt mem off, all caching off, vcache 64000 min and max.
OS sees all memory no problem
During load of an instrument a box comes up behind the progress bar which makes it impossible to see whats inside and when press ok the instrument loads an unamed instrument that doesnt work.
Using latest drivers/updates of EVERYTHING.
Drop your vcache setting and then check how much you can load.
Looks like you have vcache set to 0.25 of your total mem, this means that you can only actually use 0.75 of your total mem for everything else, into which GSt, the gigs and also Win have to fit.
However from my experience on 256M, with vcache at 0.25 you should be able to load gigs to 70% of memory. Maybe the difference is that you have virtual mem turned off (which should not really make a difference in any case on a proper DAW).
This suggests that maybe you have some other stuff running in the background, maybe starting up in the sys tray.
BTW, I do not have any vcache settings on my machine, it really only makes a difference in certain cases, and can sometimes hamper performance.
I have tried virt mem on and set 512mb equal on a dedicated 700mb partition. Still happens, better performance with virt mem off.
A while back I saw people talking about a file modification that allowed a change of polyphony. Could there be a similar mod?
