1- What is the memory limit for sfz files, my device has 6gb of ram(note 8) but get memory error for 1gb library for example
2- Sfz imported salamender piano library has some cracles while playing but your preset version doesnt have problems. What is the difference between imported sfz and preset versions. I want to use my sfz libraries here and play them via midi.
I love gstomper and want to use it more if i can solve this little problems. Have a nice day.
1 - The memory limit is per app, and is given by the underlying Android operating system. You can only change it by rooting your device.
Modern devises usually have 512mb per app. Some devices have less, e.g. 256mb.
You can check the value of your device in the info tab of the setup dialog (Main Screen / SETUP / INFO / Memory Class).
So it's pretty clear that that a 1gb multi sample won't load.
2 - The original salamander grand sfz is way too large to be used in a mobile environment.
It has 15 velocity layers and a total size of 1.1gb.
That's why I've created a reduced version of it with 3 velocity layers. Also I threw out all the hammer, release and pedal noise to get the size down to 176mb.
And yes, it's correct that there have been minor issues with the original sfz.
I don't remember where exactly the issues have been, in what note range I mean.
But the problems have been fixed in the add on pack preset.
There was also a slight re-tuning required for some of the notes.
Generally you can just save the imported sfz as VA-Beast presets, once you've loaded them.
The audible result is the same, presets are just easier to access.
If you want to avoid large preset files, you can turn of the sample embedding for all G-Stomper files in : Main Screen / SETUP / GEN / Default file format = Linked format
This will stop G-Stomper from embedding samples in all its file types, and makes especially sense if you have multiple presets that are based on the same samples.
Just keep in mind that in this case, the original samples must remain on the system, otherwise the "linking" (not embedding) presets cannot find them anymore.
Embedded presets on the other hand have the benefit that once saved, the complete preset is a self-contained file, and the original samples can be deleted from the device.
Hope that answers your questions.
