still on duty, highly appreciated. :)
Yes, much of my RAM was eaten by instruments when testing, very much indeed. And yes, clever use of optimization certainly would help, but to be honest, I really love to have random access to any articulation at any time, and I love to be lazy at work. And I´m ready to pay for that.
SSDs certainly would help, too. In my case however, transferring about 2 TB of sampling data to SSD would be rather pricy. I will transfer some of my most used of it, though, even if just for decreased loading times (yawn).
This is an open thread that anyone can read, so I do not want to say that MIR does not work on my machine. It does, when I limit myself to normal standards. Indeed, when testing, my eyes went all shiny and a little wet. MIR made my life a little happier, it really did. sniff.
That said, I sometimes do not limit myself and am happy (well, QUITE happy) to spend money on an additional computer just to have MIR run happily, even if I, just for the fun of it, add some more icons to see if cowbell 7 sounds cooler than cowbell 4, without removing all the other muted cowbells before. Call me decadent, I am what I am.
And now for the final question. I definitely will buy another computer, for MIR´s sake. But which? If my mac is strong enough to handle Logic, a few additional PlugIns and MIR with say 50 icons, a rather cheap pc for my VIs could do. Any way to test MIR´s hunger alone on my mac?
If this is a risky game, I would prefer to have a dedicated monster-pc to make MIR really happy. In this case: Is it possible to quantify the amount of RAM for ONLY MIR alone per icon (per reverb-time of the venue, per stereo/surround)? I´d rather spend my money on missing VIs than on unused RAM.
And now for something completely different: Happy Weekend and let the candles burn, burn, burn.
