32 to 64-bit Audio Units and VST Plug-ins Adapter
32 Lives is a transparent 32-bit to 64-bit Audio Units and VST plug-ins adapter, which enables you to run your favorite 32-bit-only plug-ins, such as Vanguard, VB3 and TC PowerCore plug-ins, in your latest 64-bit DAW. 32 Lives is compatible with virtually all 64-bit Audio Units and VST host applications, including Logic Pro X, Cubase, Ableton Live and Studio One.
Moving forward with new technologies, modern Digital Audio Workstations bring many new features and improvements utilizing a new 64-bit architecture which enables to break the 4GB memory access barrier of the 32-bit architecture and access up to 16 Exabytes of RAM. Unfortunately, older 32-bit plug-ins will no longer work in your latest 64-bit-only DAW. Previous projects, created using an earlier version of your favorite 32-bit software, will not load correctly in your latest 64-bit workstation.
Enter 32 Lives
32 Lives is capable of generating transparent 64-bit Audio Units and VST adapters for your tried-and-true 32-bit legacy plug-ins, helping you to cross over to your latest 64-bit DAW smoothly and transparently. Older sessions saved with your 32-bit DAW will fully load into your 64-bit DAW version, including all presets, parameters and automation; no special re-wiring or routing is required. All your 32-bit-only plug-ins will be displayed in the plug-ins menu as they always have been.
32 Lives is a Mac-Intel-only application, requiring Mac OS X 10.6.8 or above and an internet connection for authorization.
Great, when not best 32-bit bridge. Works flawlessly (at least with all my 32-bit plugins). Installation is simple and usage is very easy and almost self explanatory. Just open the program after installation and choose all 32-bit plugins you want to convert (it's called resurrect). Open DAW et voilà.
Automation and presets and saving presets within Logic X and within plugin works. At least I haven't yet encountered any issues.
Guess most of the old plugins will become sooner or later an overhaul to 64 or will be succeeded by a new version. At this point 32 Lives will become obsolete. Still there will be probably some old plugins you want to still use, so get 32 Lives.Read Review
