3. Important Notes
==================================================================
Please see the KONTAKT 5.0 Reference Manual for important notes!
Version 5.0
- Building the KONTAKT 5 Database referencing a very large sample
collection can cause the Database to reach a very big size.
Since the Database is partly loaded in your computers RAM it
will reduce the available memory for loading instruments.
