What does “limit for maximum amount of locked memory” mean?

I have installed Ardour DAW software on an HP workstation that is now running Pop! OS. When launching the program it gives me this warning. (See attached photos) The workstation has 10GB of ram installed and the system analyzer shows it using less than 2GB. I don’t understand what it is telling me or what to do about it. I’m pretty tech nerdy but I haven’t come across this terminology before.

I did a lil quick research on it. Since its a graphic/audio/visual application it may be due to “shared” memory of some model laptops.

Purported solution:
