Testing Kontakt RAM Use on M1 Mac Mini


I received a lot of questions about Kontakt and how it was running on the new M1 Mac Mini, or Apple Silicon in general.

Though most of the sounds in my Native Instruments M1 video were from Kontakt, I figured I’d do a video for those that don’t use Maschine.

So I loaded up Kontakt in Ableton Live 10, and loaded a bunch of patches to see how it handled the RAM. I ended up loading up a full 64 patches and still had RAM left, with no issues.
