2011 EDIT- PLAY has been working for me now in 2011......most of the time......except for my belove QL Pianos. Thank you EW for all the updates and improvements......and by the time PLAY 4 is out I expect all other problems to be finally ironed out.
I have twice tried to post my troubles with PLAY on the Eastwest/ forum, but they refuse to let my post be posted.....and seem to keep deleting various other posts with negative comments on PLAY......thus I will have to take my complaints to every other forum I can as to make sure people who are considering purchasing PLAY at least have some warning. To top it off, I hate complaining about a product that shows so much promise, but there is no way I can be silent when I just spent good money on several PAY instruments that are not working as advertised.
All 3 of my PLAY libraries will not play within Cubase 4.5 without glitches and pops.....sometimes I can get them to sound OK, but as soon as I add 1 other VST instrument things go haywire. I also tried to use PLAY outside of Cubase with MIDI Yoke, but when I do PLAY either- 1) crashes, 2)my VSTi's do not sound, or 3) my audio has clicks and pops. Kontakt 2 works great via MIDI Yoke, btw. I have installed the latest November 17th update and have all the latest Cubase updates also. I tried phoning tech support twice in the past several days with promises of returning my phone call, but so far have not heard back from them.
My DAW is a Pentium 4 DualCore 3.0Ghz- with 3GB switch. ASUS P5LD2 MB, 4Gb O' RAM. 400G SATA HD's (x5), Win XP Pro- SP2. Everything on my DAW, other than PLAY, runs fantastic.
I had planned on buying all the rest of the PLAY instruments this month, but unless someone can help lead me in the right direction for a fix I would be a fool to spend another dime on PLAY. I feel foolish for not looking at all the other posts first about people having problems using PLAY in their hosts. You live and you learn. I just hope someone chances upon this post and reconsiders purchasing PLAY..........at least until they fix the problem.
Thank you all for letting me get that off of my chest.
