32 Lives - Completley seamless AU bridge for Logic X!

Just found this! Looks like we finally have a completely seamless solution!


32 Lives is a 32-bit to 64-bit Audio-Units plug-ins adapter




You can load Logic 9 Projects and all 32-bit compatible plugins will load with automation!

32 Lives is a new application, capable of generating a 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 Pro sessions will completely load into Logic Pro X, including all parameters and automation. No special re-wring or routing is required. All your 32-bit only plug-ins will again re-appear in the plug-ins menu as they always were.

32 Lives is currently in open beta and available for purchase for a discounted price of $69 (instead $99) for the duration of the pre-release beta stage. All beta users will be upgraded to the full release version at no extra charge.

32 Lives



This is how it appears in Logic X

As you can see you load the plugin exactly the same as if it we're a 64-bit native plugin. Logic based presets and channel strip settings all load perfectly too. Only different is as its bridged the GUI is still separate but the AU plugin window will automatically move with it when you drag it around.

They are not currently shown on the developer's Plug-in Compatibility Chart, so maybe not... or nobody's tested them yet and reported one way or the other.

Here for the gear
 

I got Waldorf - Largo working. And all My other 32 bit plugins. Hope they sort out the logic window so it wraps around the plugin instead of being above the plugin window. But it works really great!

Yes! Working well. I haven't done a heap of testing but my sessions with Speakerphone opened up fine and I was able to automate.

nice to see sylenth on there, though lennard has reported a 64bit version for the end of the year.

this is a great idea, maybe other companies will take it on board as well.

Hi !

I took the plunge and bought 32 Lives.
It requires an internet activation to unlock it, by means of an email adres you provide and a password that is sent to you at that email adres.

You then run the application 32 Lives and it will show you the 32bit AU's at that moment in your Components folder.
You can choose which to bridge ("resurrect") to 64 bit AU.

I succesfully "resurrected" Warmverb, FG-X, Largo and Sylenth 1.

I must say, the bridged AU's seem very solid to me in LPX 10.0.3
I am overal quite satisfied with 32Lives !

One annoying thing though:
When you open a bridged plugin, and mouseclick on the plugin interface, for example to tweak a knob or change preset it steals your computer keyboard, so that the Logic keycommands don't work anymore.

Also, when you work with the music typing window in Logic, to play notes, that window vanishes when you click on the plugin UI, so you have to bring it back again by clicking outside the plugin UI, to give Logic focus again.

will this resurrect pluggins even if they aren't included in the compatibility list?

edit: the quick tests i've done show that 32 lives is very similar to logic 9's 32bit bridge in performance, assuming that logic x and logic 9 perform and use computer resources equally

edit again: i did this test not realizing that 32 lives was also the bridge used in logic 9...therefore, my test was completely useless for this.....and it does feel like it actually is more CPU intensive than logic 9's bridge

unfortunately though, i was not able to resurrect dimension pro and rapture

I bought it yesterday - so far I have used it with Sylenth1 and Waldorf Largo, and both seem to work OK.

The floating header window is a bit odd, but doesn't interfere with functionality at all.

another thing is the plugin windows stay in front of any other app (firefox, etc.) that i switch to if i don't close them first...kind of annoying

Curious, if a third party can make all of these plug ins 64 bit... why is it so hard for the actual developers?

Why can some Joe Schmoe make SampleTank work, but the venerable IK Multimedia... makers of lots of crazy iGadgets and accurate emulations of hardware... takes 3 years?!? IK announced SampleTank 3 in 2010!

SoundToys made all kinds of excuses for years like it was pulling fingernails to get their handful of plug ins to 64 bit.

I suppose this is a cheat, but at this point I'd take a cheat from IK to get my beloved Tron samples working in LPX. I just bought the IK group buy for $69. (which is an amazing deal btw) Ironically the same price a this app. haha.

@rufuss...i think theres a big difference in a making a plugin 64bit than just wrapping/bridging it.....this solution is def useful but native 64bit plugs seem so much more cpu friendly....

i would love to see the little floating window be integrated with the actual plugins so that it looks like it really is 64bit
