I'm running MIR PRO 24 in standalone mode as opposed to integrated into VEP6, and I am connecting it to my VEP6 on the same Mac, using AU instances of MIR. My question is, which is faster, the AU or the VST instance? Which or do either use more CPU, have more lag, go 32bit vs 64bit, etc? Is there any difference in the CPU hit using the Standalone MIR vs. the integrated MIR? Or is the CPU, RAM impact identical to the very last bit and CPU cycle?

MIR Pro should be seen as 64bit plug-in with the option to be used in a 32bit environment in case of need only.

As long as the Preferences and all surrounding variables are set to identical values, the CPU- and especially RAM consumption of MIR Pro / VE Pro and MIR Pro / plug-in version should be virtually identical, too. Keep in mind than not all hosts treat a plug-in equally, though (which is more likely to make a difference than the different plug-in formats).

Depending on your setup, VE Pro itself (and consequently the VE Pro-based version of MIR Pro, too) could cause higher overall latencies.
