64bit memory stress-testing

Developing x64 plugins on windows?

Need to check that your stuff works when memory gets full (i.e. when you’re operating over the 2GB threshold) ?

Here, have OneGig! It’s a 64bit VST2 that allocates 1gb of ram per instance. Easy!

Now you can memory-load your DAW for testing as you please! And yes, if you only have 4GB of ram, the third instance will make your computer CRAWL as it attempts to swap a whole bunch of ram to disk 😉

Attached is the source, plus a 64bit VST2 build for windows (by far the most useful version).
