Hello everyone,

For some reason my DAW, (Guitar Tracks 4 by Roland Cakewalk) has started reporting "Out Of Memory" when I try to import even the smallest MP3.

Any ideas? I have 8GB RAM, 5 of which are free and I'm only using 20% of CPU.

Guess I need to learn Reaper now unsure.gif

Cheers

I've never used that DAW but have you tried the basic things like rebooting, etc? Also, is there plenty of space on your hard drive? If your hard drive is full or even mostly full it can cause all sorts of problems. You should have 20 percent free on your primary hard drive at all times if possible smile.gif

On a secondary note, probably a good idea to try reaper as nearly everyone here has at least some experience with it and can offer some help smile.gif

Might be bug too, first check re-booting etc. like Todd advised and later check if there are any updates. Worst case re-install the program.

Thanks folks,

Primary HD is a 256GB ssd so I'm really careful with that. This started last night out of the blue, hadn't installed anything.

Anyway, I had a good play with Reaper and though it is much much bigger than Guitar Tracks I did like it so I'll probably stick with it.

Cheers

Cool, keep in mind the reaper forum isn't bad either. I asked a few stuff long ago there and people were friendly.
