Sounds like CPU overload due to low I/O buffer latency or running to many plugins (Space designer ***** the CPU pretty quick). Try I/O buffer at 256 and see what happens.

You were probably right. I haven't had a recurrence of the problem since, but I suspect it may have been as you say. I rationalised my MS set up a bit, and got rid of some plug-ins (the desk has pretty decent reverbs) and it's been no problem since.

I find I can run only run max of 2 Space designer plugin instances with the buffer at 128 before CPU spikes on my Macbook Pro 2.66 Core 2 Duo 8GB RAM. You can see individule plugin usage stats by double clicking the CPU meter in the top of the main window.
