You may have got this email from the uber brilliant Sound Radix team, I felt somewhat depressed as a Pro Tools users after reading it. I’m sure there are some technical differences but one is left wondering.
We’re happy to announce “32 Lives” 32-Bit to 64-Bit Audio Units Plug-ins Adapter for Logic Pro X!
In July 2013, Apple introduced Logic Pro X, the next-generation version of its professional audio software, bringing many new features and improvement, and updated user interface.
Moving forward with new technologies, the new Logic Pro X is a modern, 64-bit only application, which means that older 32-bit plug-ins will no longer work in Logic Pro X. Previous projects that were created in Logic 9 or earlier that include 32-bit only plug-ins, would not be able to fully open in Logic Pro X.
Enter 32 Lives.
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-wiring or routing is required. All your 32-bit only plug-ins will again re-appear in the plug-ins menu as they always were.

It does beg the question, what’s the difference between doing this for Logic X and Pro Tools? Discuss
