well, thought i’d seen everything…
trying to finish up a couple of projects this week and just in time for Friday deadlines, the daw starts to crap out. debugging identified BFD3 as the culprit : totally consuming all available RAM (32G) ?!!
no clue as to what triggered this, other than a minimal Win10 Pro service update…
had been running 126.96.36.199 well enough but ok, maybe time to update to 188.8.131.52?
no luck, exact same issue.
same in standalone mode with absolutely nothing else running (after checking another daw)
will launch, but maxes out available RAM in about a minute as soon as a preset is loaded
tried a number of user presets, and then a few from BFD, all with the same result.
atm any project with BFD in it is completely dead in the water (= all the current ones on the books…)
busking is starting to look like the more lucrative option
