It was ridiculous; I would have to try and "freeze" a track multiple times in order to win the "it plays back in time" lottery! Just never got Play to work as an AU plug-in in Logic without it being a random crapshoot. Ever since I switched to stand-alone, it's been absolutely trouble free with nice and low buffer settings in Play and Logic. I almost prefer just being able to "tab" over to it compared to say, having a Screenset for it.
Again, I think a lot of this is stemming to an AU issue all around. Are you switching to VST format when hosting in VEP? I've never gotten desperate enough to seriously look at that because as I said, one instance of Play in stand-alone with 16 channels is more than enough for the stuff I'm doing with it (Orchestral stuff for pop music), and the Soundflower route works just peachy!
I'm noticing that a lot of developers are struggling in general with the AU format, especially
when it comes to plug-ins that deal with MIDI. I wonder if Digital Performer users, or Ableton Users, that have the option to choose the AU format, are experiencing very similar issues?
