Max monolith size ?



  • Hi @Christoph-Hart , I was wondering what is the max size of a monolith. Is it limited to 4gb or can a sampler hold samples that generate monolith above this size? Maybe even better way to ask is if there is a max monolith size ( therefor sample map size) that can be slotted into a single Sampler?

    Thank you.



  • Yes, 4GB is the current limitation (also it's not recommended to go beyond that because it won't work consistently on all platforms).

    Be aware that it creates one monolith file per mic position and samplemap so you have to be very generous with disk space to hit that limit 🙂



  • @Christoph-Hart Thank you for the answer so fast 🙂 . We only have single mic position, but it isn't that hard for me to hit it due to the number of legatos we have, so I was simply wondering as this will impact sampler count and sampler arrangement. Up int legatos with their corresponding variants will exceed that limit, so hence I was wondering.

    However I also have an issue that at the moment when I create monolith it ends at 3.06GB, Set SaveMode to 2 on XML sample map and I don't get any sound... (it has 60RR groups) so I wonder if I'm not hitting other soft limit elsewhere? 5.7Gb raw wav size 24 bit 48khz

    Would it be possible in Source to adjust the monolith to create Monolith per Group? That way stuffing the groups could allow for one Sampler to hold all the necessary samples of corresponding type under one Sample map, but numerous monoliths, therefor bypassing any size soft limit and avoid the need for too many samplers?



  • Latest commits allowed HLAC Monolith beyond 2GB to be serialized. Not to be used with multi mic as well, but now if your sampler has above 2GB of HLAC compressed audio, it will serialize and play back just fine.
    Just though to update this forum post if anybody searches monolith in future.
    Big thanks to @Christoph-Hart
