Cakewalk/rgc:audio SFZ(+) issues on Windows 64 bit systems
Live Versions: ALL
Operating System: all WIN 64 bit systems
Symptom
When trying to load a SF2 (Sound Font) sample, SFZ/SFZ+ shows the message “Not enough memory” (even if the sample is just a few KB).
Sometimes it might be possible to load samples but they play back with poor quality.
Sometimes the user might run into these problems only when using several instances of the plug-in.
Reason
Apparently this plug-in is not (fully) compatible with 64-bit Windows systems and cannot handle memory larger than 2 GB. The same problem also appears in Cubase and Sonar.
Solution
In some cases it might help to change “Mode” to “PR32” in SFZ/SFZ+ (before loading a sample). This is a kind of disk streaming mode.
Some users have reported good results when using the SFZ 1.97 multi-core version (sfz197.zip).
