is there a 16 intrument limit?

is there a 16 instrument limit per rack? I am troubleshooting the 17th (16 instruments and 1 ehco instance), and noticed the drop down in general options/mru sizes for instruments only goes to 16. I guess I don't understand the mru size settings, and what they affect.

Re: forte 64 grey screen lockup.

saving that patch takes as long as loading that patch. it must be the design of the EEG strawberry. if I want to use it, and I do, I will just have to endure the loading time. I have sent them an email about this, but who knows if they will redesign it on my account.
