Urgent - Nebula Pro 3 Not Releasing RAM when unloaded!

Serious issues

Urgent - Nebula Pro 3 Not Releasing RAM when unloaded!

Postby faun2500 » Thu Mar 24, 2011 2:19 pm

Hi,

My specs. Windows 7 32bit. 4gig DDR3 Ram (3 usable) Pentium 4 quad core. Nebula Pro 3, Reaper.

I have noticed a problem with Nebula that is causing me a lot of hassle. I will try to explain exaltly what is happening.


I am working on a project and I am staring to render the tracks to audio with various console and EQ through nebula. So I open Reaper and then open windows task manager performance tab to check the RAM usage (I have to do this because Reaper closes when the FREE number gets to zero).

Say that there is 1078 MB Physical Memory before I start loading instances of Nebula. After I have loaded say 6 instances with EQ's and consoles the amount of FREE RAM in task manager will be considerably lower (250 MB or less for example).

I then render this track and re-import it. I can then remove the original track with the 6 instances of nebula on and then start the procedure for the next track.

THE PROBLEM is that once I have unloaded the original track and Nebula, the FREE RAM in windows task manager does NOT go back up much (if any). This means I can not add any more instances of Nebula because Reaper will close.

The only way to get the RAM back is to save Reaper, Restart windows and open Reaper again and the free RAM is back up to 1078 (for example).

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE tell me there is a fix for this as it is becoming a big problem for me and I know some others are having problems with Nebula GUI not loading in Reaper (this is the same problem).

You can take effect off-line (instead of bypass), this frees up ram

Hi, I didn't mention bypass. I REMOVE the instances of nebula and the ram stays the same. (unloading could help in some cases tho)

Thanks.

Same problems overhere. It takes about 5 minutes to unload the RAM after closing a Cubase project with 50 Nebula instances. Don't know if this is a Nebula issue (Windows 7 64 bit/Q6600/8G RAM).

More RAM does not means not RAM fragmentation. Please report it with a LOG, Acustica Audio crash or bug report > http://www.acustica-audio.com/forum/ind ... =viewtopic

Nebula doesn't seem to crash but Reaper disappears/closes.

I don't know how to do crash logs and such, I'm sorry I'm only a user not a developer.

Fact is, Nebula OR Reaper is causing this and I need to sort it out.

Check the link Enrique send you,read it and send it back to them ...
You're a musician...? That mean that you're a little electronician,electrician,computer savy,mathematician,sound engineer, sidekick,etc,etc...it comes with it ...

As for a possible solution, check some free RAM manager/optimizer on the web.I don't have no names in mind but it's easy to find.It can help you, while the AA team try to find a solution.



Good luck.

The same happens here in Logic 9.1.3.
It's a known issue; I resolve it by just rebooting Logic.
OSX doesn't need to be rebooted.
A fix would be better, though...
How's that 'RAM-distribution' coming?

So its not only me - that's good then! :lol:

But it needs a fix fast. I go from 1.5 gig free RAM down to 100MB in 5 minutes with nebula.

After rendering and deleting all the instances of Nebula my RAM is still very low and my PC needs a restart!


Sort this out please!
