Standalone and VST instances of H7S not sharing samples on RAM, a bug?

Postby rosesbyrosex » Sat Oct 28, 2017 10:03 pm

I realize some minutes ago that the standalone and VST versions of H7S don't share the same memory, i can load as many VST instances in my DAW the open very fast because the samples are loaded, but if i open the standalone .exe, the samples start loading again.

I want to do this because when i close my vst project and open a new one, don´t want to wait for the samples to load again, so i want to keep the standalone .exe open to keep the samples open even if i close the DAW or VST intances.

Re: BUG REPORT, standalone H7S instances not sharing the same memory with VST instances

Yes, at current Heavier7Strings sample cache sharing only occurs within same process, for example, instances within same DAW host program. This is not a bug.

Inter-process memory sharing requires complexed software structure. You have to make a program or system manager service, and use semaphores and shared memories. This requires too much work for our current team size.

If you really needs inter-process memory sharing now, you may use Vienna Ensemble Pro which can host networked sound processing.
