Use Your 32-bit Plug-Ins In Logic Pro X


Sound Radix has released 32 Lives, a 32-bit to 64-bit Audio-Units plug-ins adapter, that they say is compatible with virtually all 64-bit Audio-Units host applications. Here's the story in their own words...

In July 2013, Apple introduced Logic Pro X, the next-generation version of its professional audio software, bringing many new features and improvements and an updated user interface. Moving forward with new technologies, the new Logic Pro X is a modern, 64-bit only application, which means that older 32-bit plug-ins will no longer work in Logic Pro X. Previous projects that were created in Logic 9 or earlier that include 32-bit only plug-ins will not fully open in Logic Pro X.

32 Lives is a new application, capable of generating 64-bit Audio Units versions of your loved and hard-earned 32-bit legacy plug-ins, helping you to cross over to the new Logic Pro X smoothly and transparently. Older Logic 9 sessions will completely load into Logic Pro X, including all presets, parameters and automation. No special re-wiring or routing is required. All your 32-bit only plug-ins will again re-appear in the plug-ins menu as they always did.

Features

  • Creates 64-bit adapter plug-ins for your 32-bit only Audio Units plug-ins
  • Transparently loads your legacy TC PowerCore, Abbey Road, URS and other plug-ins into Logic Pro X and other 64-bit Audio Units compatible DAW's.
  • Fully compatible with older sessions, loads all presets, parameters and automation
  • Ultra-low latency and high CPU efficiency
  • GUI workflow is transparent and doesn't require additional clicks and windows
  • Compatible with Logic Pro X, Mainstage 3, Final Cut Pro X, Garageband X, Live 9, Digital Performer 8, Studio One 2, Audition CC, and Tracktion 4.
  • Compatible with OS X Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks


32 Lives is a Mac-Intel only application, requiring Mac OS X 10.7.5 or above and an internet connection for authorization.

Pricing and Availability:
$99

That's a lot of money for using a couple of old plugs.

Far too expensive - forget it !! Most Logic Pro users are not pros - and your charging a large fraction of the cost of the DAW, and more than all of Reaper and about 3 times the most expensive iOS iPad DAW. Rip off. Wake up and smell the roses. 29 bucks - that's a valid charge.

The price is fair IF you've spent money (lot of cash) on PoCo platform, Abbey Road and other (expensive) brands, that have not updated yet their plugins to 64 bit or are abandoned and want to use them in a modern 64 bit only DAW. FYI this 32 bit bridge works flawless with Logic X and dare to say much better than Apple's native 32bit bridge in LP9. Do you remember the plugin window behaviour in Logic's native 32 bit bridge??? Floating window, one view at a time etc. Comfort and usability always have a price, right?

It's too expensive. There's is no rational argument to setting the price this high, other than to rip off customers because there's no other viable option available. There are too may rip-off merchants like this in the music industry. There;s not denying the usefulness of this, but it needs to be less than half of what you're asking.

I agree with the part that the music industry is not a fair place, but that's why is called "industry" the goal is to monetise everything. Expensive or cheap has a subjective meaning. For example, i've spent in PoCo platform almost €3000, €500 in Abbey Road plugins, €800 in RnD bundle (Roger Nichols, remember these) and more for others. To use all of that in LPX or Ableton Live 9 (64bit) for just $99 is fairly cheap, otherwise i "trash" all that money and have to change my workflow. To use Sylenth 1 only (or even 2-3 more old plugins) is really expensive. In general there must be no argument when it comes to the cost of a merchant, we live in a capitalistic system, don't we? You vote with your wallet. I hate this too, but it's how things work....

It does cost a lot, but think of it from the standpoint of the company. How many of these things are they going to sell, even if the cost were to be lowered? It is an extremely niche product and takes a fair amount of resources to develop & maintain. They have to make money on it somehow.

no soundtoys support (yet) but still, this this has filled a crucial gap in the workflow of LPX users.

fuck 99$ if you can keep your old workflow and keep those precious 32 bit plugins you've spent over 1k$ on

nothing like an outbreak of indignant hysteria to brighten up a january day. if you don't want it at that price, don't buy it. end of.

Economics, mates. If we don't buy it at $99 the price will drop within 4-6 months.

However, keep in mind that it's hard to make any money in software these days. The iPadders have learned to expect free as the normal price. Kracks are figured into price point when a dev sets his/her price, too. So maybe 2000 people are interested in using this 32bit bridge. Maybe 1500 buy it legit. That's $49.5k in lost revenue when the price is set at $99. If he prices it lower, those 500 people still won't buy it, they'll use the Krack anyway.

If you need it now, save your pennies and get it in a few weeks. If not, wait. The price will come down. Screw the Kracks though. Eventually no dev will be interested in building us the tools we desire without some stupid dongle (ilok) or other pain in the arse copy protection.

great solution, fair price for those who *NEED* it. If you are running free plugs with no investment in expensive tools used regularly, with no 64bit support imminent, it's a reasonable price to save purchasing alternate products compatible with Logic X. Only the "free economy" whines when worthwhile products are actually a cost versus free. People who need it, will buy it. Everybody else shut up already - go make some music with your warez and let the people who keep the music apps in business by paying for them get real work done. ;-)

Curious...I working in logic X, w 32 live in the demo mode and having a problem. My 32 bit Miroslav plugin loads fine, but seems to "drop out" after playback after about 45 seconds or so. Also, the main screen of Miroslav just disappears for a few seconds. Does this have anything to do w 32 live being in demo mode?

If you want to learn the new Logic Pro X, then I have the perfect tool. I’m a self-published author and have released a manual for Logic Pro X in my “Graphically Enhanced Manuals” series. “Logic Pro X – How it Works”.

The manual is available as pdf file, printed book on Amazon, and interactive iBook on Apple’ iBook Store. Other manuals are for GarageBand X, GarageBand for iPad, Logic Remote, Final Cut Pro X, etc.

Check out these unique manuals at http://DingDingMusic.com/Manuals/

Thanks, Edgar Rothermich
