Are you running it on Win or OSX?

Hallelujah!!! A great day has come! Hope they fixed some of those little bugs.

Now we're just waiting on Sound Toys... and Waves... and Abbey Road.

I purchased a brand new iLok 2 specifically for use with Lexicon's LXP 64 bit version and while all of my other plugin bundles run and are recognized (Waves Platinum, CLA, SCC, Nomad Factory, PSP, etc.), Lexicon LXP fails to find the iLok. The previous version of 32 bit LXP native runs perfectly as well.

This is maddening, as I upgraded to Waves 9 yesterday, so the only software prohibiting me from full 64 bit support is Lexicon.

I have the LXP 64 bit running in Logic. Seems stable so far. Now I just need Autotune and UBK-1. Then it's all sixty-four-city.

As a follow up, I contacted PACE support last night and this morning, they responded with a few questions. After providing a little more detail (System Info, etc.), PACE support sent a file with a few instructions. After complying, the Lexicon LXP bundle, along with all of my other iLok supported plugins, are working perfectly.

I'm finally and fully 64 bit! Woo-hoo!

Has there been any word on The PCM reverb bundle working in 64 bit (AU/VST) for Mac OSX?

The latest release notes on Lexicon's site seem to indicate that it works in AU and RTAs. It's unclear if Mac VST is also working at 64 bit.

Reading through this thread, it doesn't seem to be the case for AU, RTAS or Mac VST though.

Does anyone have any ideas? Looks like the LXP bundle is working at 64 bit already for Mac and PC.

Thanks

I haven't had a chance to update this thread but I've had more than 40 emails with Pace and I can't get the LXP Bundle to work every time I boot.

If I move the iLok2 around of my computer, sometimes, the Lexicon software will recognize the iLok2 and sometimes it won't. It's maddening and I had to send another report ticket this week.

The oddest thing is that every other software bundle works perfectly. I have 80 licenses on the iLok2 and the only plugin that has issues is LXP Native. I'm about ready to dump it altogether and find another solution, which sucks because I love the sound of the plugin.

Well I hope the Lex stuff survives.

I've demoed about everything out there, including the ones like Aether that people rave about, and honestly, I'd be fine with Altiverb and one of the Lex packages as a general solution to everything....the Lexicon stuff (particularly PCM) is the only software reverb I've plugged in and said "Wow...major difference." This is not counting UAD stuff, which I can't risk right now because I'm running PT HD Native and UAD seems to be causing a lot of people with this system problems.

I grew up in studios using 480s and 224s etc so I guess I have an affinity for the Lex sound.

I've been using PCM reverb bundle for months in 64-bit AU version.
Not sure what the problem is ??

All good here too with the LXP bundle,with the exception of ProTools 10. Sometimes, I get a buffer overload errors when manipulating the GUI. Gets pretty annoying, but all well with AU.

For what it's worth, I just moved from an old Mac Pro on Snow Leopard to a brand new Mac Pro running Lion.

The Lexicon PCM Plugs run WAY worse on Logic under Lion than they did on Snow Leopard. Seems to be a GUI problem -- as soon as the plugin interface is open, huge CPU spikes immediately upon attempting to move any sliders. Plugin works fine as long as the window is closed.

I was running the exact same plugin version in 64 bit mode on Logic under Snow Leopard just 2 weeks ago and everything was fine. So it appears, from my standpoint, to be a Lexicon/Lion problem.

Anyone else still seeing this behaviour?

Same here. With the Lex I'm not left wanting for more. I don't think about reverb anymore.

And actually I don't think much about ANY plugins anymore. There are amazing options in every category. These are good times for music software.

Try running them in 32 bit. I've been told they work better that way on Lion. Try it and let us know

Unfortunately I can't do that. After the migration from my Snow Leopard Mac Pro to the new Lion Mac Pro, I had some crazy install issues. So I was forced to reinstall Logic, and reinstall the 'prokit.framework' (*word to the wise: despite what some Apple support docs say online, NEVER delete the ProKit,.framework -- coz it's next to impossible to reinstall it).

So now that I've got my system back up and running, the one 'quirk' is that Logic will not boot in 32 bit mode. It crashes on startup if I attempt it, but works fine in 64 bit mode. I'm guessing that has to do with the damaged/replaced "prokit.framework', but can't be sure. It's annoying, because certain plugins (like the Abbey Road ones) need to be scanned in 32 bit mode first before they'll show up in 64 bit. Sigh. 'Progress'.

In any event, what's the point of Lexicon releasing updated 64 bit Lion-compatible plugins if they only work properly in 32 bit mode?

For now my workaround is simply to do my parameter tweaking while in 'stop' mode. It's a pain, but I'm hoping that after I upgrade to Mountain Lion, some of these issues may be sorted out.

Never said they don't work in 64 bits. Some engineers just told me they seem more stable working in 32 bits. Have you tried deleting Logic preferences?

Yup- did the prefs dance.

And I'm not saying they don't work in 64 bit -- but you suggested they only have sever problems and CPU spikes in 64 bit mode. If that's true, and they work BETTER in 32 bit mode, then as I said, it seems to defeat the whole point of 64 bit 'compatibility' doesn't it?

But my issue isn't of course with you -- I appreciate your post and any clues you can provide as to the source of the glitches. I'm simply annoyed with Lexicon, who as we know have been less than 'responsive' with software support. Not to mention they let go the only staff member (NobodySpecial/Michael Carnes) who seemed to actually give a hoot about getting this expensive plugin suite to operate smoothly.

I mean, I love the sound of the plugs. They're great. But it's very disappointing that on a newer faster machine with the most up to date PCM software that it actually runs much worse than previous versions.

I'll pass on my experiences to the Lexicon team... Or intern - as the case may be. Can't say I'm optimistic about any fixes within the next 12 months.

Wish I could be more help. I truly understand your issues as I too find it's a great reverb although pricey as we've been accustomed by Lexicon. I truly hope it works out for you and that they polish the 64 bit version.
