3 tracks with a Kontakt instrument in each, 4gb of RAM all used - why!?

I load a track with each a Kontakt instrument: Kontakt abbey road 50s drums, Scarbee JayBass and Session horns. I can't load a fourth because it then warns me of an imminate crash.
What can i do to run more instruments and not run out of RAM (apart of the obvious switching to x64 and adding more RAM)

Please list your system spec's. If you can run Studio One at 64 bits as it will allow you to use all the RAM your system has available(if you can run 64bit).

note: 32bit Studio One only allows a max of 4 Gb

It has to do with Kontakt sample loading, whenever you add an instance the samples are loaded to the RAM which when it reaches 4 Gb will issue a warning.

You can transform the tracks as you complete them to audio and offload the instruments to free up RAM, just right click on the track under Instruments choose "Transform Track to rendered audio"(freeze) and if you need to tweak them afterwards you still can.

Aah, i see how that works. Shrinks them to a third of the RAM-use.
Welll, i cant edit them as MIDI but as waveforms. That's probably alright.

Thanks so much! .-)

I think you can also dig into Kontakt's options and limit how much of the instrument is loaded up.

I think....
Win 8.1 x64 // i7 3930K (@ 4.2GHz) // Samsung Pro 512GB // 500GB SSD (via Raid 0) // 2TB HD // 32GB RAM // Antec Kuhler 620 // Radeon HD 7870 + Radeon 5450 // MSI X79a GD45 Plus mobo// TI chipset Firewire card

DAW(s): Studio One v2.6 // Maschine Studio // Reason 7 via Rewire
Plugs: UAD 2 Quad, Softube CL 1b, Klanghelm, Toneboosters, Soundtoys, Slate VTM, Kramer Tape
Instr.: Addictive Drums, Gladiator2, Sylenth, AAS Bundle, K9U, IK Total Studio 3, Cinesamples, RealGuitar/Strat/LPC, Trilian

RME UCX // AKG c214 // SM57 + Cloudlifter CL1 // JBL LSR 4328p // FMR RNLA // Korg Kaossilator Pro // Novation 61 SL MKii // Korg MicroKey 25 // Presonus Faderport // Contour Designs Shuttle Pro
