ok, i changed my playback engine settings from:

h/w buffer:2048
host processors: 8
cpu usage limit: 90%
host engine ignore errors during playback: check
number of voices: 98(2 dsp's)
delay compensation engine: none
dae playback buffer:
size: level 4 (3000ms)
cache size: large
plugin streaming buffer size: level 8
optimized for streaming content on audio drives


to

h/w buffer:64 or 128
host processors: 7 (this is VERY important)
cpu usage limit: 90%
host engine ignore errors during playback: check
number of voices: 98(2 dsp's)
delay compensation engine: none
dae playback buffer:
size: level 2
cache size: large
plugin streaming buffer size: level 8


i guess it was a combination of the h/w buffer, the host processors, and delay compensation that was messing things up - i thought bigger caches would be better for virtual instruments, but apparently smaller buffers are the way to go. anyway with these adjustments geist seems to be working much much better now. thanks to the support team for helping me through the problem, and i hope this thread might point anyone else with a similar problem in the right direction.
