One thing to look at is if you really need all those context switches.
That would be the case only if all the VST plugins are in series and
there is some linux code between each one and the next.

One way to organise the processing on both sides is to continue
in the same process until it depends on results from the other.
This will reduce the number of context switches in almost all

And 32 frames is quite small - there may be reasons for that
but in many cases you can use larger period sizes.
