Can be demonstrated through Process display on Task Manager, even if same reselected. V1.01

It's not really using all of your RAM, the Windows Task Manager is just not very good at reporting actual RAM usage. More info here:

Basically, Sound Borb looks like it is using a fair amount of memory when loading a new Borb, but as it's loading, it's freeing the majority of it. Windows Task Manager doesn't immediately show that the memory has been freed, so it looks like Sound Borb is using a ton of memory, even though it's not. If you minimize Sound Borb, Task Manager will refresh, and show the actual memory usage, which is generally something on the order of 2 to 3 MB.
