I am using Cubase 8 Pro 64bit on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.
My setup has Intel i7 and 32GB of DDR3 ram.
Kontakt preload instrument size is 60kb.
Yesterday I ran out of memory while working on a project, then made some analysis. Here is my question;
then a fresh Cubase 8 Pro probject, and see in taskbar window that Cubase 8 Pro takes about 600 MB of mem.
then load Kontakt 5, it reaches from 600 MB to 700 MB, which is normal I guess so far.
than load for example NI Maverick Piano. Cubase memory consumption in taskbar reaches from 700 MB to 1200 MB (which means Maverick takes about 500MB), but in Kontakt window, it says 200MB for Maverick.
So is that normal?
(Note: This is just one example. It is happening for all loadings. There is about 400-500MB of difference between Kontakt info and Taskbar info per instrument.).
