Adobe Audition Bad Allocation error

Hey Everyone

 

Thought I would leave this little bit of information here for anyone that comes across the same issue.

 

I do a lot of post production editing in Audition for podcasts and audio dramas. A couple of times in my process I have come across a "Bad Allocation" Error when I am editing. I looked into it for a long time and couldn't really find any answers, but I finally have. 

 

If there error ever arises for you. Shut audition down, open up your task manager and reopen the session in Audition. Now watch your Memory values (RAM). If it jumps very high; into the 90%; you have nearly maxed out your RAM in the editing process and will have trouble editing further. This is basically a limit reach on your PC's compenents and you might need to look into increasing your RAM if you will continue doing heavy editing like myself. 

 

Just thought everyone should know this, if they encouter said problem or error.

It's worth noting in this context that you can vary the RAM allocation in your computer that's available for Audition, as opposed to any other Adobe app by going to Edit>Preferences>Memory. The lowest value that you can reserve for other apps is 1.5GB, but if you have a lot of RAM installed, and you are using other apps like Premiere simultaneously, there may be something to be gained by altering the relative values.

Mine does that only when I am trying to export.  I just recently loaded it onto my daughters laptop.  I didnt realize it only has 3GB of RAM.  Will that alone give me the error?
