When using PT 11, or Sequoia, I can use my 32 bit plug-ins. Is this possible in Pro X?
Logic Pro X only allows 64 bit Audio Units. However, there are workarounds, such as 32 lives from sound radix.
There are some free workarounds out there that require some fidgeting around, but I recently bought Radix's 32 Lives and I'm very happy with the results on my 32 bit fx plugins and instruments. It's a wrapper, (much like the old fxpansion vst-rtas wrapper) so once you've "wrapped" your 32 bit plugins they simply open and behave as they normally would. I have no affiliation with the company so I'm speaking as a simple end user.
Radix's site doesn't list Waves plug-ins, or am I missing something?
Waves Plug-Ins are now 64 bit.
Yeah, I personally wouldn't consider using a wrapper for plugins that have already been updated to 64 bit. If Waves are the only plugins you need to get running in Logic X then it might be worth renewing your Waves Update Plan instead. I use 32 Lives for some of my golden oldies that are no longer being developed. And heck - it even works with Melodyne Bridge (warning: have not tested EXTENSIVELY).
I have the new 64 bit Waves Mercury bundle, but I have other 32 bit Waves which I don't have 64 bit versions of.
I would rather expect that 32 Lives cannot work with Waves Plugins because it works with single Plugins in the Components folder while Waves uses it's proprietary Waves Shell.
But best would be to ask Sound Radix about that.
Excellent point, Peter.
Thanks, Peter. I'll keep looking.
