As I have Mac Mini 16 Gig, some sets only JUST fit in RAM .......SO I want to know, and being worried about how much space V5 takes compared with V4, seeing the many new features.........

Hello Geert,

I've just posted an entry regarding v5 additional memory usage, compared to v4, here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17970&p=136225#p136225 .

Thank you for your answer, Martin!
I have got a Mac Mini (built 2012), too! Thus, this answer is very useful for me.
Best regards, Frank

Yes, I see this 1 GB of RAM usage when the audio starts up since the RAM used jumps by that amount. That is not a small amount of RAM, and has had a major impact on my organ loads. And I used to think 16 GB was a lot of memory. In fact, I can no longer load an organ because of this. I wish I would have known before I upgraded because it may have had an impact on my decision to upgrade. I do really like the reverb included, and the control of the MK2 LaunchPads though. Tough call on if I'm happy or not.

If it may help I can share my personal experience as follows -

- Hardware - Mac Mini Server late 2012, 16 GB RAM (not original, from OWC if not mistaken) and SSD (not original as well).
- OS X - when measured under HW 4.1, I was under 10.9. I'm now under 10.14 - cannot go to Catalina yet as one of the apps is not compatible yet.
- All banks with a resolution of 24 bits, excepted Salisbury and Caen V2 (20 bits, only way to make them fit in 16 GB).
- RAM consumption measured by IStats.

Saint-Michel-en-Thiérache - 9.02 GB under HW 4, 10.26 GB under HW V.
Santanyi - 5.79 under HW 4, 6.59 under HWV.
Kampen - 11.14 under HW 4, 13.25 under HW V.
Arlesheim - 7.81 under HW 4, 9.1 under HW V.
Saint-Maximin - 11.70 under HW 4, 12.95 under HW V.
Salisbury - 13.32 under HW 4, 14.15 under HW V.
Caen - 11.50 under HW 4, 12.91 under HW V.
Saint-Eucaire - 11.52 under HW 4, 12.78 under HW V.
Mietke Harpsichord - 5.49 under HW 4, 5.93 under HW V.
Ghent Beiaard - 0.54 under HW 4, 1.17 under HW V.

I have been lucky enough to have all samples working with HWV without any change to be done... When loading Salisbury there is only 0.2 GB RAM available according to HW V, although only MusicReader and Reaper are loaded as well.
