I'm not sure what's going on here or if this is unusual or perhaps a memory setting issue.
Is RMX normally this much of a memory hog? I am working on a project right now with a few small patches from other kompakt libraries using around 400-500 MB ram. Suddenly putting RMX in my project with 2 loops adds another 800 MB ram load suddenly all my 2 GB ram is now used up.
I then start a new project and looking at my Task Manager loading up only RMX with 2 patches raises the memory load by around 700-900 MB.
Am I missing something here or is this normal? How do you guys with 1 computer get away with using RMX and other samples for large templates at the same time.
"In Groove Menu mode, selecting a Suite pre-loads all the Elements of the Suite into RAM memory. RAM usage can become high if several Parts are in Groove Menu mode and the Suites are large." - Part Modes.pdf
I have run into this "problem" as well. I like to combine elements from a bunch of different suites, so RAM can become a problem, particularly if you have other large-ish instruments like a piano going as well.
Is there a way to unload the elements within a suite you're not using? Otherwise this (or some kind of RAM save/RAM purge function) would be a great addition to RMX.
Those numbers still don't add up. I'm pretty sure there are no two suites (in the core library anyway) that you could load in groove menu mode to use that much memory. What version of RMX are you using? By this I mean the version number, like 1.0, 1.2 or 1.5. You'll find it displayed at the end of the utility menu.
