    Memory usage increasing with GP4?

    Hello all,
    I recently upgraded to GP4 Aria from GPO Kontact

    I have noticed that after running a project using GP4 Aria (5 channels KS Strings Stereo out)and some other VST's for perhaps half an hour I'm getting audio pops and eventually C4 crashes.
    If I look at 'Processes' in the Windows task manager and take an 8 bar loop I can see that every time the project loops the memory usage in Cubase increases by 100 to 200 k. Until eventually all my RAM is used up and C4 crashes.
    I know this is an Aria issue because I loaded the same project but substituted GP4 Aria for the old GPO Kontact system......no problems..no memory eating...even stuck SD2 on top no crashes and completed the project.
    So whats going on?
    Why should Aria be eating memory on every loop?

    Thanks again for any info.

    Hi

    Since aria is not aware of the host looping i really don't see how we can leak just with this.
    unless some midi events or call from c4 cause this.


    can you share the specific project?

    Hi David,

    I'll try the Aria update first and reopen the project where I left off.

    I'll let you know.

    Thanks for reply

    when I first loaded Aria GPO4 on cubase the option came to load either a 'multi version' or standard. I first loaded the multi version and my cpu hit the roof.
    The standard VSTi version saw much lower usage. At first I feared this would only give me a single stereo out, but no, with each extra part added there an extra stereo channel appears in the Cubase mixer. Haven't a clue what the multi version is about

    However, I've noticed that the ambience reverb uses up a hell of a lot of cpu.
