27 Nov How to load 32-bit plugins with Gig Performer on a Mac
Update: If you have upgraded to Catalina (OS X 10.15) you will not be able to load 32-bit plugins at all. Don’t even bother trying!
First of all, the bad news is that you can’t do it directly. Gig Performer is a 64-bit application and so can only load plugins that are also 64-bit. However, there are some applications available that can wrap 32-bit plugins so that they can be loaded by 64-bit hosts like Gig Performer. We’ve tried a few of them and the one we found that seems to work best is 32 Lives from Sound Radix. 32 Lives will find your 32-bit plugins and “resurrect” (their term) them so that they can be used with 64-bit hosts like Gig Performer.
It is not a free product but if you have legacy 32-bit plugins that you can’t live without but which have not been updated to 64-bit format, 32 Lives should do the job for you.
