Sound Radix 32 Lives

32 to 64 bit AU Plug-ins Adapter

32 LIVES is a 32-bit to 64-bit Audio Units plug-ins adapter, which enables you to transparently run your favorite 32-bit-only Audio Units plug-ins, such as Vanguard, VB3 and TC PowerCore plug-ins, in your latest 64-bit DAW.


There are no additional windows to open and no redundant routings to make. Your favorite 32-bit plug-ins will appear in your 64-bit DAW as if they were native 64-bit plug-ins.

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.

Welcome Back To Your Workflow

Moving forward with new technologies, modern Digital Audio Workstations such as Logic Pro X and Ableton Live bring many new features and improvements utilizing a new 64-bit architecture which enables the DAW 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.

Your Plug-ins Are Now Resurrected

32 LIVES is a new application, capable of generating transparent 64-bit Audio Units adapters for your tried-and-true 32-bit legacy plug-ins, helping you to cross over to your favorite 64-bit AU-compatible DAW smoothly and transparently. Older sessions saved with your 32-bit DAW will fully load into your latest modern 64-bit DAW, 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.
