I don't expect anyone to have the answers to my exact problems, but maybe someone could at least point me in the right direction. Here goes...
I'm using an edrum kit (Yamaha Dtxtreme IIs) with Audition 3.0. I've always used the module sounds, but I've finally come to realize/admit that they machine gun too much and are just not that realistic. So, I purchased BFD2 after comparing drum sample software and on the advice of a forum member.
I expected there to be some syncing problems and I'd have to learn how it works, etc... However, when I run it as a plugin, simply turning it on eats almost 90% of my RAM!!!!! I can't even have three toms as it tells me I've run out of RAM!!!! It seems to be working fine when I run it as it's own program (not as a VSTi in Audition.) Please tell me there is something funky going on and I need to press some weird MIDI option in Audition to get it to run without eating all of my RAM. It's really unusable in this state, as just playing back a simple bass drum and snare recording lags and distorts.
Why does no data appear in the multitrack window when I record MIDI? I don't like having to pop open the sequencer to see a series of blobs. Is there any way I can at least get the MIDI data to show up in multitrack view without having to open the sequencer? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give me.
