    EW: PLAT PRO XP & Kontakt problems !!

    hi guys

    am getting when loading EAST WEST xp plat pro strings (large strings) 50 piece and more the following errors

    1) WARNING: memory is getting low. This may cause dropouts or other artifacts , then when i press ok...it keeps on loading samples ok BUT after a while i get the following error:

    2) ERROR: could not load sample (no big enough memory block available) Continue loading ?

    3) also after i click yes about a hundred times...the samples get loaded but:

    4) i get constant click and pops when playing 4 notes or more in staccato

    This is so frustrating !!!!

    5) also why do it search sometimes for samples...they are all there in the correct folder !!!

    my specs are: (on a standalone pc)

    P4 2.66 Ghz 533 FSB CPU 512k Cache
    Intel D865BFL Motherboard
    2 Gb Corsair Extreme RAM
    40 Gb Seagate IDE 7200rpm Boot Disk
    400 Gb RAID0 for Audio Streaming (2 x 200 Seagate 7200 rpm)
    Xp Pro + Sp2
    RME 96 / 8 Pro 2.11 + RME WCM 2

    i tested the same library on my other DAW with the same problems and this machine specs are:

    P4 ® CPU 3,20Ghz; Genuine Intel
    Intel D865PERL Motherboard
    80 Gb Maxtor ATA133 Boot Drive
    250 Gb Maxtor ATA 133 Archive Drive
    2 x 200Gb Seagate SATA Drives in RAID0 Configuration
    4 Gb Corsair ® DDR400 Extreme RAM
    XP Pro + Sp2
    RME Pro 96/8 Pro 2.11 + RME WCM & 3 X UAD-1


    have tried numerious combination settings with DFD also in adition to "normal, high,large, small"

    like

    preload buffer size 24 kb with voice buffer size 0.84

    preload buffer size 24 kb with voice buffer size 456kb

    preload buffer size 24 kb with voice buffer size 24 kb

    preload buffer size 480kb with voice buffer size 0.84

    preload buffer size 480kb with voice buffer size 456 kb

    preload buffer size 480kb with voice buffer size 24 kb

    preload buffer size 0.84 mb with voice buffer size 0.84

    preload buffer size 0.84 mb with voice buffer size 456 kb

    preload buffer size 0.84 mb with voice buffer size 24 kb


    i also toggled the reserved voices low , middle and high values

    any suggestions of which one is best to get rid of drop outs ?

    can my kompakt player be corrupted ?

    i did post at techsupport at soundsonline but maybe its a kompakt issue more than a sample library issue !!!

    thanks

    When you are saying "50 piece"...you're not talking about loading 50 separate instruments in, right? Because you would be lucky to get half that many at a single mic position with your system and Platinum. It's a very resource hungry library.

    Re: EW: PLAT PRO XP & Kontakt problems !!

    P4 2.6 Ghz
    2 Gig Apacer 3200 RAM
    60 GB OS IDE Drive
    1 Terrabyte of HD space for Samples
    Audiophile 24/96 and E-MU 1212m (using 1212m in test)

    RAM findings:

    1.61 GB Available - At the start
    1.49 GB Available - After loading Kompakt in Overture 4
    1.41 GB Available - After loading the 50 piece string Ens. Fast patch (Close)

    30+ voices played no problem (12% CPU)
    No RAM warning

    DFD Settings:

    DFD is Active
    Expert Mode
    Preload 192 kb
    248 reserved voices
    Voice buffer size 348 kb
    93 MB Reserved RAM

    Works okay with Lock Memory No Swap On or Off, makes no difference.


    Is this the only thing loaded when you get the error message? How much free memory is available (cntrl+alt+delete, check physical memory on Performance tab)? Do you get the same warning in plugin and standalone settings?

    You could try reinstalling DFD. It is also easy to just reinstall the Kompakt player itself. It won't harm your registration to reinstall.
