Well, it's like the title says - just 13%. The memory configuration test advises 13% (or about 210 Mb - pathetic), and indeed whenever I try to load any samples beyond 13% I get the dreaded Unknown System Error window. Kaput.
I've tried all the memory optimisation tweaks in GS, plus the Mattius tweak. Nothing works. I removed Nero completely too, using the CLEAN tool, so it's got nothing to do with that. It's a damn shame. I mean, a brand new 4GB quad-core and I'm getting far far less performance than I had with GS3 and my old 1GB P4 2.8! Terrible.
I even switched to GVI, and although it works fine, its interface is nowhere near as good or usable, IMO, and it doesn't work with the VSL Performance Tool (and, yup, I've been following the set-up guides for that too, and with very unstable results). I want to go back to GS3, but the 13% limit is hugely impractical.
I've read that a lot of multi-core users are having similar problems with GS3, but beyond the memory tweaks, there are no real solutions.
Is there anyone out there who can tell me why this GS3 memory thing is happening and whether it will be cured with GS4?!
