    I rarely use Play anymore as it get these weird out of memory errors. This will happen when only using one instance of Play with one instrument loaded. I'm running the latest Logic 10 and plenty of ram. Does the new Play 4 show significant improvements I terms of performance verses 3?

    I am EastWest's Online Coordinator. That should not happen with either Play 3 or 4.

    Play 4 loads app. 15-20% faster. RAM usage is about the same. Some people say it uses less CPU, some say more. Personally, I am not noticing a difference if you do not use the optional SSL FX. Obviously, they bump up cpu demands.

    The new Mixer and background loading is very helpful.

    Also, EW has told me that there were changes made under the hood that are utilized by Stormdrum 3 and will be in future libraries so they will not run in Play 3.
