I suppose, but Waves are also a mature company, there are plenty of lone coders coding plug ins that can have issues. Waves compatibility won't mean that a plug in can't crash DP, and what with Waveshell it doesn't even mean that their current VST implementation isn't solid.
My remark was purely about whether DP has gone through the necessary patches on windows platform - to be a safe prospect for buyers. Not that no plugin would ever crash DP.
Most daws I've tested has settings to make a plugin run in a separate process - making it able to crash on it's own without taking the daw down with it. But in the end it's an issue with the plugin vendor that cause this.
I check supported hosts at Waves every two month or so to see if DP show up.
I like the ability to work in chunks, as they call it. I often find the need for rearrange parts of a song, extend some bars or a verse, another break etc. DP could simplify this quite a bit sinc eeach chunk is selfcontained - you can swap things around easily. Perfect for making video, but for songmaking as well.
