Sound Radix have released 32 Lives V2 for Mac. This new version brings Steinberg VST plug-ins support in addition to Audio Unit plug-ins and significantly increased stability. They have also built a Sandbox for plug-ins so that if one plug-in crashes, it won't bring the whole house down, your DAW will continue to run and you'll be able to save your work.

Resurrecting Your Old Plug-ins
Sound Radix’s 32 Lives solution is great for any DAW or NLE running on a Mac that supports AU or VST plugins (so not for Pro Tools, but if like a number of the team you use Final Cut or Adobe Premiere, or Studio One, and of course Logic Pro) and 32 Lives has a reputation as a very good 32- to 64-bit adaptor in terms of transparency, compatibility, stability and CPU performance.
32 Lives is designed to enable seamless crossover to the latest 64-bit units even with legacy plug-ins usually incompatible with modern systems like the old Abbey Road, TC PowerCore, and URS plugins. 32 Lives has built its name on its capability in running classic plug-ins as if they were native 64-bits, whilst allowing you to recall of pre-sets and previous projects on the original plug-in.
