    Memory maxed at 41%???

    Hi,

    I'm using GS3 on a newer PC (P4 3.0 ghz, 2 gig of ram, big RAID drive for samples etc.) and I'm unable to load more than 41% (according to Giga 3's memory bar) of instruments. Seems low, is this all I get? Do I need to do the famous tweaks just to get past 41%?

    Thanks,

    John Z.

    Have you used the memory configuration utility (3.03 and after)?

    Yes.

    Read the manual topic on memory optimization. You don't need to edit the registry anymore, GS3 does it for you.
    For a machine which is solely devoted to Gigastudio, 1-1.5GB is the sweet spot. Any more RAM is a waste.

    Get into the system settings and troubleshooting. There's a memory config setting in the lower right side that you can adjust. #3 has been working really well for me. Tascam has said that 66% of the overall memory is the best that they can do at this point. Hopefully they'll bump that up to 75% in the near future. (Your 41% figure is a portion of the memory that GS can access...I can double that with the #3 setting). With two gigs of dual channel ram you'll get way beyond what the sweet spot guy had to say. Cheers, jc

    Thanks much.

    This place is such a great resource.

    I guess I still should have read the manual.

    Best,

    Becasue it's a feature added in an update, it's not IN the manual
