M30: 64 bit support

Question

Is M30 studio reverb a 64-bit plug-in?

Answer

No. The plug-in binary code is 32-bit.

When using a 64-bit audio host application, bridging is necessary in order to be able to load M30. On Windows, Cakewalk Sonar, Steinberg Cubase and other audio hosts offer a built-in bridge for running 32-bit plug-ins. Alternatively, you can use a third party bridge i.e. jBridge

On Mac with Logic, you will have to run Logic in 32 bit mode first to initialize:

  • Start Logic 9 in 32-bit mode (Select the Logic icon in the applications folder and press either Apple+i or right-click 'Show Information'). 
  • In the Information window, check the "Open in 32-bit mode" checkmark). 
  • Open Logic. It will then scan any new 32-bit AUs. 

Once this is done (and assuming the AU passed validation) it may then be accessed with the 32-bit Audio Unit Bridge running Logic 9 in 64-bit mode.
