No worries, I was out of town until today as well. Its working well with cubase 5 now (except I can't seem to get Cubase to recognize the EastWest PLAY VSTs...a separate issue though). PLAY standalone is the only program now I can't get audio out of. I guess I will try a clean uninstall/reinstall of all PLAY products and see if that fixes anything. Thanks for the help, I'll post my results in case anyone else runs into this particular problem.
