I'm hoping someone can help me with this, it's a pretty serious issue. I'm not sure if this is VE Pro at fault or Kontakt (5.3.1). I'm on Mac OS Mavericks, and randomly when loading my template (which consumes about 11GB of RAM), it'll stop suddenly. Sometimes after a couple gigs are loaded, sometimes more.

And if I click the arrow (next to purge) and choose an option like purge samples or reload samples, I get the spinning beachball of death. I have no ideas how to even start troubleshooting this. I guess I could start by reverting to Kontakt 5.3.0. Not sure where the problem lies, though (VE Pro vs Kontakt). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Aha! My system ran out of RAM. Now, the obvious question is, why on earth did I not have this problem under Mountain Lion, but this is now an issue under a clean install of Mavericks? I've got 32GB RAM total. When idle, with just a couple small apps running, I'm using only 5.5GB. That should be plenty to load up 11GB of Kontakt samples.

Ok, problem solved. Kontakt's memory server was enabled, apparently that's a bad thing, though I had it enabled before on Mountain Lion and it wasn't a problem. Things are working much better now.
