So, 1) does running pianoteq 4 with a bridged 32bit dll compromise its efficiency (especially regarding latency and break ups). And 2) why on earth does the 64bit .dll not work? This problem doesn't occur with any other VSTs or VSTi's that I've tried.

I've reinstalled everything a couple of times and the result is the same: 32bit only.

Any information on this gratefully received, thanks!
ps - With a bit more experimenting, I can say for sure that the in-Reaper PianoTeq does not work as well as the stand alone version. There are much more frequent break-ups in Reaper.
