Although we don't support 3rd-party plugins here,
the only buffer relevant to gapless playback is:
"buffer ahead on track change"
(set to somewhere between approx. 400ms - 1500ms).

The main buffer size should be as small as possible.
Default is 2000ms, but you could try smaller.
The higher the main buffer size, the longer it takes for EQ and DSP/FX to take effect.
Prebuffer size should also be at the minimum/default 500ms setting.

btw, the aspi-layer bears no relevance to mp3 playback.
It is only used for Digital Audio Extraction mode with Audio CD playback
(and only if "use sonic engine" is unchecked in CD plugin config).

Good luck.
