I'm sure many of you have encountered the sort of hard limitation on Windows XP RAM usage - 2GB per application. 3GB (with the proper switch) helps a bit because at least some of the memory is allocated to the OS itself. However, as I understand it, there is no other way in Windows XP Pro to get around this limitation, which makes it very difficult to do realtime work with very large sample libraries. However, Windows XP 64-bit can apparently access a great deal more RAM than that.
Does anyone here use XP 64-bit? If so, what have your experiences been? Any incompatibility problems with common samplers like Kontakt 2 or the Kompakt Player?
Thanks in advance!
