UAD Console Problems

Hello all, I posted this on the UAD forum but didn't get much of a response.
This is the message I've been getting and I know it's an old subject
UAD Powered-Plig-Ins Info
One or more UAD plug-Ins Have been disabled
The Plug-in was unable to load.
Out of PGM/MEM resources and/or DSP load limit
was exceeded for a Console channel.
I've had this going on for a long time, wasn't able to focus much in the studio, but I'm restarting and need to fix this. I see demos on UAD Website and they load the same plugin's as I try to do with no problem, Normally I will have a Unison Channel Strip then a few plugs on the inserts, I know each plug is different as far as using resources, But this happens almost with 2nd or 3d insert. A few times I've tried to use the same plugs exactly on their demos and mine have failed.
I'm om Logic 10.2.4
Late 2013 Mac Pro
Yosemite 10.10.5
3.5 GHz 6-Core
Memory 16 GB
Apollo 8 Quad
UAD Satellite Octo
All thunderbolt

Besides memory I have plenty of fire power here, Maybe it's just Console, System or Logic settings.
Thanks for your help!!!

i know this sounds dumb..but did you try quitting the app, and unplugging the cable connection to ur iMac?? if that doesn't work, do it again, but this time restart ur Mac before you relaunch the Console app...

also, make sure ur Console app itself is up to date..should be 9.0.0 now...

What sample rate? What plugins?
A quad can load pretty much, but some plugs only allow a few instances, maybe less with higher sample rates.
The Octo will not provide DSP for plugins which are loaded in the UA Console.

I have had similar problems. I found out that the bx20 plugin is the problem. It had to do with loading the plugins. It depends on the Daw. Cubase loads the mixer from left to right. If the channel with Bx20 is placed far left the project loads without problems. If it is placed on the right side of the mixer it gave the out of memory notification ( although plenty is left). Try it in logic. It could be there is an other memory intensive plugin that is the culprit.

I wasn't aware of that. So the Octo can only be used within the DAW?

What H/W buffer size? Put it on the highest you can. The only reason to use a low buffer is if you are having latency problems with virtual instruments which should not be a problem with Thunderbolt and Apollo.
