Microsoft 19H W10 fast insider feature release note

“FLS Slot Limit Increase
As PCs get more powerful, musicians have created increasingly complex projects with more tracks, more instruments, and deeper effects chains. As a result, some of those musicians were running up against a FLS (Fiber Local Storage) slot allocation ceiling that prevented them from loading into their DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) as many unique plugins as they’d like. This build greatly raises that per-process FLS slot allocation ceiling, allowing loading potentially thousands of unique plugins. Beyond musicians, this change will positively impact any application that dynamically loads hundreds or thousands of unique DLLs that have statically-linked Visual C++ runtimes, or otherwise allocate FLS slots.”


yes this looks very interesting

I hope Steinberg implements this right away.

This will work straight away also with older versions.

To take advantage of this, no work is required from plugin or DAW developers. It’s all in Windows.


Great news!!

Dear Pete ,
will update be released soon? We really suffer from it as engineers & producers with heavy sessions, projects. It kills our workflow :confused:

We haven’t yet given a date for the release, but if like the past, it will be in the spring.
