The multisample exceeds the maximum of 1024 MB

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

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

"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."

 There are two ways to resolve this issue:

  1. If you're opening a file from the Ableton Core Library or a 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 (Sampler is available in Live Suite, or can be purchased as an add-on instrument for Intro and Standard).
