With Native, I can load my entire RAM full of hundreds of KONTAKT instances (online, with instruments loaded in each), without any noticeable lag.

Interestingly, "Buggy plugin compatibility mode" also seems to have an effect. When using Dedicated process, "Buggy plugin compatibility mode" also allows me to load many more instances, although loading is not as fast as when using Native.
