I *think* I mean actual offline processing. The transport is stopped and
the plug gets a whole chunk (or rather a series of buffers, I s'pose) of
data to process, maybe a whole track or the current user selection. The
plug then, generally, replaces the original data with it's processed
data, e.g. after applying some reverb. Then the user hits 'play' and
hears the results.

Does that sound like 'offline', or is it what you mean by 'long

My first thought for 'long look-ahead' would be that it refers to getting
data signifigantly ahead of the conductor/transport/realtime position.
