I am unable to load Sound Online's Play AU into VE Pro on my Mac.  I have the latest versions of all software.  Other AUs do load properly.  The Play AU works in other hosts apart from VE Pro.

 Correct. PLAY does not work on OSX in VE Pro. Hopefully a solution is in the works.

Also...  When an instance of both VE Pro and Play are in a DP project together play crashes.  I will test this again later to make sure.  Even when I don't try to load play in VE Pro crash happens from Play under this circumstance.  That means VE Pro can't be anywhere near Play for the time being.  I hope you can fix this soon as both programs are very useful.

 I am experiencing the same problem....with cubase 5 if I load Play AND Vienna Ensemble my Mac Pro crashes.

Any idea if the problem will be solved ?

At the moment for me Vienna Ensemble goes back in a drawer until they fix this big issue.

Thank you

I've had the same problem.  If I have DP7 running VE Pro and then add an instance of PLAY (in DP NOT VE Pro), DP7 crashes.  It is quite weird.  Maybe the Vienna guys could chime in and let us know why this happens because it didn't happen before VE Pro was there.

I have figured out a temporary work-around.  I'm using DP's interapplication midi to send midi to PLAY's Standalone.  I then reroute the audio back to DP through Soundflower.  Works great.  Just adds another step to my set-up everytime I open a project.

Vienna guys, you have any idea why adding an instance of PLAY in DP is crashing DP when an instance VE Pro is open?

Thank you Elektroakustica!

I was thinking to use your same system, great to know that it works to you!

I would like to know if the Vienna Team is working for a solution of this problem ?

I knew play wasn't supported in Vienna Ensemble Pro, but I didn't know

it is not possible to use the 2 softwares simultaneously in the same DAW.

I think this should have been clearly specified before the purchase.

Thank you very much,

i´ve heard from logicusers having the exact same problem. (using 10.5.8)
if ve-pro is active and they open an instance of play in logic it crashes immediately.
this doesn´t happen on my system though. (10.6.2)
may be this helps to isolate the problem which doesn´t seem to be host specific but rather an OS-version thing.

btw. i wonder why so many people in this forum report problems without any information about their working environment.

Thank you Clueblast,

I am using Mac Os 10.5.5 and Intel Mac - so I hope I can solve the problem simply by updating the system.

It would be great if some Cubase user could confirm me that they can load and instance of play and VE PRO

in the same Cubase project using the Snow Leopard ?

Thanks for now,
