Is there a good way to make Kompakt Instruments use less memory and still play well. I have EWQL Gold and Virtual Grand Piano which are Kompakt VSTi's and they both use alot of memory. If I load the VGP without even loading a sample it takes up about 70 megs. Then when I load one of the presets the memory usage swells to almost 400 megs. Well this is fine for one instrument but what if you want to use GOLD and VGP at the same time? I only have 1 gig of ram so it's an issue right now. Also if these things use the disk streaming why does it have to load so much into ram?
I'm comparing this to GigaStudio which seems to be alot easier on the memory load. I loaded up GS with 3 instruments and one of them being the Gigapiano and it's only using about 90 mb (16 for GS and 74 for msg32).
Just seems like the Kompakt instuments take way too much memory to accomplish the same thing Gigastudio does. And this is version 2.54 of GS.
Is GS still just that far ahead of NI technology wise?
I like the NI Kompakt Instruments in that it doesn't require a sampler to play and can be used as plugins. It's just they are hard on the memory use.
Of course once I get a 64 bit machine with 16-32 gigs of ram I probably won't care anymore.
