I'm running Kontakt 5 inside VEP5 Server linked to ProTool10 HDX. Does anyone have advise about whether to turn Kontakt's memory server on? How about using Kontakt's multiprocessor settings?

Mac 12 core

Thanks

have the same machine as your, maxed out ram (96 Gigs,used 86), 4 sample drives with 115 Mb/s read speed each (2 sata, 2 esata with pcie card) and oc 1 sata for os/apps plus 1 sata for projects:

if I don't choose 16 cores of multiprocessing in K5, I can't barely stream less than half of the samples I've loaded in my  template.

Mem server is off, while the preload buffer size is maxed out to 240 kB (not having ssd but enough ram, I took this lane).

If you max out the preload buffer, you'll see how easy you are going to eat up your ram...these are the heads of the samples, the rest comes from drives...but this way they have more breath, being them not as fast as ssd, and in my case performance is improved, because the ram is stressed as hell...
