RAM LIMITS/ Plug-In Chart??
So after PT crashing due with a Memory Error about 10 times in one night I started doing some research. I now know that PT can only use 2G of ram irreguardless of how much you have. Does anyone have a chart with appox how much ram some of the more popular intruaments and plug-ins use.

For Ex:

Pro-Tools New Project. 800,000 bites
Mini Grand - 400,000 bites
Kontact Player with Full Kit Loaded - 250,000 bites

These are 3 that I have noticed so far. As you see your already at 1.5G and haven't hit a note yet... Geeez... Is there anything that I can do to save more memory resources???

First, if your system permits, you can run the /3GB switch in your boot.ini file . This will give you about 2.7GB of accessible RAM in PT8.]

What OS are you running?

I recommend going to Win7-64, and adding at least another 2GB more of RAM (more won't really help a lot). Under Win7-64, PT8 can run 4GB executables, and Win7-64 also "gives back" the RAM that is normally mapped to your video and other PCI cards.

Well that is GREAT to hear. Maybe with Double the RAM capacity it will crash half as often! Its not so bad now that I know what to look for but still very aggravating!!! Thank you for the info!!!
