Error Message: "The multisample exceeds the maximum of 1024 MB"

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

"The multisample will take ___ MB of RAM and exceeds the maximum of 1024 MB. Adding the sample will unload the samples from RAM and play them from disk."

Typically this error occurs when trying to use certain samples in the Orchestral Strings Pack (or any large samples) with Simpler. Simpler has a 1024 MG limit.

 There are two ways to resolve this issue:

  1. If you're opening a file from the Ableton Core Library or Pack, then open the Preset which contains the file instead, rather than opening the file directly in Simpler.
  2. Load the file into Sampler instead (available as part of Live Suite, or as an add-on product).
