PDC issues with Logic 7.1

I'm getting latency with UAD plugs on my audio instrument tracks (I'm not talking about busses or auxes here) in Logic 7.1. This despite the fact that PDC is set to ALL. I don't have any problems with native plugs, and I didn't have this problem with Logic 7.0 either.

I've got a dual 1.8 Ghz G5 running 10.3.9. Can anybody think of why this is happening, or any solutions?

Sorry if this has been addressed before, but my searches keep timing out.

So do you mean you are getting latency during playback on instrument tracks with UAD-1 plugins, or do you mean there is more latency than usually when you have the Logic PDC setting to \"ALL\"?

I'm getting latency on instrument tracks in both the "ALL" and "Audio tracks and Instruments" settings--about the same amount in either case. Interestingly enough, I'm NOT getting latency on BUSSES when PDC is set to "ALL". So I guess I should be thankful for at least that much. Still, though, I'd like to be able to use UAD-1 plugs on the instrument tracks without latency (which I was able to do in 7.0).

is it:

1. latency on playback of the track in the sequencer, or
2. latency when you put a plug on a track and try to trigger it on your keyboard?

2 is to be expected and can't be helped man

That's odd. Try having AU Manager rescan all your UAD-1 plugins. The only Instrument that I am aware of where latency compensation \"doesn't work\" is with the step sequencer in UltraBeat. For some reason, the step sequencer is not factored into the delay compensation process. It works properly, however, if you have a MIDI region triggering the notes on the track. This is the same for any plugin that would require delay compensation though.
