Sometimes SK shuts down saying it's out of memory. Any way to increase the amount allocated to SK?

Yes, its last section of help manual. Although its not designed to need that much memory so indicates an issue, perhaops you could send support files.

On Windows you can modify the maximum memory allocated by editing SongKong.ini (32-bit) and
SongKong64.ini (64-bit)

On OSX you can modify the maximum memory allocated by editing /Applications/SongKong.app/
Info.plist

On Linux you can modify the maximum memory allocated by editing songkong.sh


When SongKong is started the maximum memory it can ever use is specified, this is the second value and SongKong can never use more memory than this regardless of how much memory your computer actually has whereas the first value is how much of that memory SongKong is actually using. Note that SongKong uses a garbage collector to release memory that is no longer required and this is called periodically, if SongKong is nowhere near max memory usage it tries to recover memory less often than it could, and so the current memory usage may be higher than SongKong is actually using.
