I’m still on Windows 7 and a plugin dev told me there is some kind of limit as to how many plugins can be hosted by a DAW.
I think this was expanded with Windows 10, but im curious, what exactly causes this limit, what is the limit, and is there a way to find out in the DAW how far towards the limit is the session getting?
It would be great to know for the purpose of building big templates with plugins pre-loaded, if the DAW could somehow measure and keep track of this and show us how much plugin space is currently taken up.
I believe it is not simply the number of plugins, but how much space each occupies (even if they are disabled). You will know once you cross this threshold because you will no longer be able to add plugins, and or, it will show the plugin as ‘Not Licensed’ via iLok/
