howdy,
is there any hope for lowering RAM usage of Play in future versions ???
When I load it in Cubase it takes 500MB of RAM just for a start... when nothing is yet loaded....

Have you installed the most recent PLAY update? PLAY 1.2.3 (and 1.2.0.) are both very resources-efficient, with an advanced streaming engine.

You might also look into streaming from a dedicated drive (or several), a couple drives in a RAID0, or solid state disks. They will all lower your dependency on RAM in favor of more efficient streaming.

Hey luk,

You can try lowering your engine level. The higher the engine level, the more RAM PLAY takes up by itself.
