Oh boy, too much RAM!

Hello,
Audirvana requires a lot of RAM memory!
I have a library of more than 200,000 titles, and 32 GB of RAM and when I open Audirvana, only Audirvana, I have almost no memory left!
Anyone experiencing this kind of problem?

Do you have upsampling enabled? Try to disable it.

I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Edit*** Okay, I’ve found it. Yes, it is disabled.

Audirvana run on nothing… cpu is idle for me at 80% to 90% while playing a song or CD loaded…
no upsampling, mac mini 2012, i5, 16gb ram. If i look at monitor it says less then 1gb memory.

You surely have a bug somewhere if you are not upsampling.
It as nothing to do with the larger the library is… i think (i have 42000 songs).

Try to do a library maintenance… The three steps… The third one for me takes 5 minutes…
so yes, will be longer for you, but not that long anyway… go to sleep if too long :slight_smile:

First if you, i’ll restart the mac,
open Audirvana,
do the three steps…
don’t play songs,
don’t edit tags… let i t go alone for the third step.

After it is done, close Audirvana. Restart mac again, yes i know…
try to make all things on your side to be sure :slight_smile:
restart Audirvana, and check again memory used if it changed.

I did that (thanks), so Etrecheck tells me that Audirvana take 4,9 GO…

Can you send me a copy of the “Debug Info”? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>General>Debug Info

Note: By clicking on the Debug Info button, Audirvana automatically copies all its content, all you have to do is paste it in response to this message

you can change this setting in the audio output and set it to 3 or 4000MB and Audirvana will take less RAM in your system.

And Audirvana will continue to function well despite my 230,000 songs?

Yes, this is an allocated space for audio when you play music in Audirvana
