How hungry is Omnisphere?

I'm going to upgrade and include 16 GB of RAM, because I plan to take on Omnisphere. I've gone through the specs, so I know what it generally entails, but I retain a sliver of concern. I'm curious about the number of instances you can run before a "typical" system chokes, "typical" being subject to several variables, of course. I tend to run between 18-24 non-multichannel tracks as a loose rule, with few hiccups. My current "stack" is a breeze to use, but Omni is a world unto itself. How hungry is it in your experience?

I've got 16mb of ram and have run at least 3, maybe 4 instances along with Stylus, Kontact, and OPX-Pro (or other synth vst) and a dozen or so mono audio tracks. Sonar X3, Win 7, i7 quad core. Occasional drop outs. Rare, actually.

Thanks, good to know. I'm fundamentally invested in Logic's own instruments, but I also have a few 3rd-party items I can't synthesize from my base materials. When compared with your work load, my own is pretty modest, so I feel good about my chances. :thu:
