What specs do you need to play patches like, 

BPM SPLIT - Lost in transition

BPM SPLIT - Requiem For The Shuttles MULTI

These patches and others kill my pc.

My Processer - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 - 3820 CPU@ 3.60GHz

Installed RAM - 24GB

Motherboard Asus P9X79. Would the extra 8GB RAM make much difference?

Not sure it can take 64GB.

Any guarantee a more powerful processor would be a fix with more RAM for these hungry patches!?

In general my set up works fine.

Hi.  A few questions.  Are you using Unify and the Unified versions of the patches?  Are you using only Omnisphere?  Are you running inside of a DAW?  If so, which DAW?  When you say "kill my pc" is your CPU pegged at 100% or are you getting crackling?

I purchased Airwave V3 outside of the PlugInGuru site, so unfortunately, I can't download the Unify versions.  There was also an update to Airwave V3 with a few extra sounds added, but the site I purchased from only had the original release.  I don't have "Lost in translation" in my library, which may have been one added after the initial release.  I did test out "Requiem For The Shuttles" in standalone Omnisphere.  I have a less powerful computer and playing six notes (drums, bass, synths every part was playing) I had no issues.  With this patch loaded, Omnisphere is showing 700MB of memory used in Task Manager.

Granular in Omnisphere is a real problem and can bring a powerful computer to its knees.  I looked and patch 4 of "Requiem For The Shuttles" uses granular.

  • Select the 4th patch in the Multi (BPM PAD - Questions About Life).
  • Switch to "A" and you will see Granular is turned on.
  • Turn off Granular and see if this helps at all.

Ableton Live 10, Omnisphere, Native Instruments (Pianos), Spire, Diva, SynthMaster, Alchemy 1.55, Addictive Keys, Unify

@ssquared Hi, yes using Unify standalone and Unified patches. I tried Omnisphere standalone today in the Multis and was getting no crackling !

I use Cubase 10.5. There's still a couple Unified patches that are in the red but not nearly as bad. Computers don't always behave as they should !!

I might have had something running in the backround. Cheers
