My problem, is the amount of physical RAM RMX consumes when *no* sounds are loaded. In my case, the first (empty) instance of RMX uses 18% (180Mb) of my total of 1GIG of PC 2700 DDR RAM. The 2nd instance uses 10% more, and each instance of RMX uses up 10% more of my RAM thereafter. And this is without loading any sounds. This means I can only load 7 empty instances of RMX before I consume all my available RAM, without loading any samples!
Practically, in any given composition, I am therefore limited to one or two instances of RMX (used multi-timbrally) given I am using other virtual instruments at the same time.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
I have a P4 2.4GHz PC with 1Gig RAM using Logic 5.5, and have no probs with any other plugins / virtual instruments from Spectrasonics, NI etc
I am aware that Spectrasonics is not officially supporting Logic 5.5 PC users, (something i was unaware of when I purchased the upgrade for the original Stylus) but I am hoping someone (Spectrum or Glenn0?) may be able to point me in the right direction.
Seven instances of RMX ??!! Brett, remember RMX is eight-part multitimbral. For that reason it's unusual to need multiple instances. With seven instances, that's actually like loading 56 instances of a very powerful plugin!
Thanks Glenn & Ed, your comments are of course sensible, and I guess you're telling me that this is normal behaviour for RMX.
However, most times I need at least 2 instances of RMX, so to have 280Mb of RAM gobbled up without even loading any samples is a lot when I only have 1Gig installed. I can see the solution though... $$$
Cheers and thanks again.
