Over the years i have picked up tons of plugins and with every new OS update i fear the worst for my old plugins. Last step up was to Windows 7 64bit and Cubase 6.5 64bit. I was very sad to see that most of my old 32bit plugins have trouble running under 64bit, Ok that was to be expected but does it really have to be like this, nopes not anymore...

I have heard of jBridge but feared that using this app would limit my setup in ways i could not control. Some times you just got to take a chance and see what happens.

I installed the program and a small setup guide took me through the setup. I had various options on how jBridge should transform my system. After some initial trying i ended up with having jBridge take control over all my plugins both 64bit and 32bit. There is an option in jBridge which will rename all plugins and add x64 to the file. That option was best left off because i would not be able to load my old Cubase projects since Cubase would not be able to locate the files with the old names.

After the install i ended up with a new MyVstPlugins directory which held all the bridges to the old VstPlugins folder. In Cubase i would remove the old location of VstPlugins and make the new MyVstPlugins the default folder.

Would this mess up the location of presets on my plugins, nope, presets are still found where they always have been.

First plugin to try on using the new jBridge was Komplexer, that plugin did not work using Cubase own VstBridge. With jBridge Komplexer became alive again and so did the stability of all my older SynthEdit plugs. In fact all my troublesome 32bit plugins ran smooth again. One more thing worth mentioning is that Cubase launch is lightning fast now.

Needless to say i'm excited to see my old plugins up and running again, thanks to jBridge.

I have just installed cubase 7 on windows 7 64-bit and have bridge several plugins - Atmosphere, Soundtoys, Kick Ass Brass. None of these plugins seem to be able to find their .dat or preset files. I've used the spectramove utility to set the registry location for the .dat file, and confirmed that is where it points to. Soundtoys plugs launch, but show none of the built-in pesets. KAB can't find the soundfile even though the settings point to the right location for that as well. Any ideas?

On a plus side, I just installed it, and it did something awesome- I clicked the sluggish GUI hack option as well as the Force whole GUI refresh, and now NastyDLA behaves perfectly! I really liked the plug, but the knobs often weren't responsive, and changing a preset did not change the display of the knob positions. Works great now! Makes using a great older plugin a pleasure now. That is awesome!!.
