Would love to see/hear these projects that keep pushing your Force out of all ram. Are you trying to use your Force as an 8-track recorder? Can you share/post a video demonstrating your issues?

I tend to use Undo a bit as its a fantastic feature, but this is what was causing my sessions to max out with less than 20 minutes of audio recorded.

This is brilliant info thanks! This makes me wonder about RETROSPECTIVE RECORD???. Is there any way to turn this off ? Surely this feature is overkill on a device like this with very limited RAM ??

Retrospective record is only for MIDI, not audio, so it shouldn't impact the RAM significantly.
