OK, I can see I have an issue regarding ST4 holding onto RAM, Thanks @zzz00m for confirming and @ShawnMH (that simple action really should not have borked anything as it is a standard action)
I wonder if m.2 nvme disks are the reason I’m not disk streaming but rather continually accumulating RAM usage.
Things that make you go hmmmm.
Just to be clear, I have been seeing plenty of RAM being held onto, and occasionally being released after a bit of time. Inconsistent results at best.
That example I just gave is the first time I have seen any sign of streaming in ST4. I loaded the instrument, and then let it idle for 20+ minutes before I tried to play it. It seems to have "unloaded" itself from RAM during the interlude, but was still "there".
But since getting ST4, I usually just bang in one instrument after another in an eager attempt to audition them all. This is where I get fails like freezing, crashes, memory not being released in a timely fashion, etc.
My OS, SampleTank, and all of my VSTs are installed on my SSD, and my samples are on an internal SATA 7200 rpm drive.
