• Welcome to the Pipe Organ Forum! This is a part of the open community Magle International Music Forums focused on pipe organs (also known as "church organs"), organists, organ music and related topics.

    This forum is intended to be a friendly place where technically advanced organists and beginners (or even non-organists) can feel comfortable having discussions and asking questions. We learn by reading and asking questions, and it is hoped that the beginners (or non-organists) will feel free to ask even the simplest questions, and that the more advanced organists will patiently answer these questions. On the other hand, we encourage complex, technical discussions of technique, music, organ-building, etc. The opinions and observations of a diverse group of people from around the world should prove to be interesting and stimulating to all of us.

    As pipe organ discussions can sometimes become lively, it should be pointed out that this is an open forum. Statements made here are the opinion of the poster, and not necessarily that of the forum itself, its administrator, or its moderators.

    In order to post a new topic - or reply to existing ones - you may join and become a member by clicking on Register New User. It's completely free and only requires a working email address (in order to confirm your registration - it will never be given away!). We strive to make this a friendly and informative forum for anyone interested in pipe organs and organ music.

GO loading error - out of memory


New member
When I try to load one of my larger GO sample sets, I get the following error:

Out of memory - only parts of the organ are loaded. Please reduce memory footprint via the sample loading settings.

Exactly how do I go about doing this? Do I need to manually go into the file and delete stops and their associated WAV files? Or what?

I'm somewhat of a beginner with GO and don't yet know all the ins and outs of the system.

After the organ is paritially loaded [you can even use cancel during loading], open the organ dialog, select a part of the organ and change its loads settings.

Then save & reload.

PS: 32 Bit GO + 32 bit Windows are limited to about 2GB of memory.
