  • 32 bit and 64 bit plugins

    I note from the manual, and from personal experience, that VEPro 5 will not run plugins with different bit ratings - there is no 'bit bridge' in the software to cater for the two different types.

    This is a bit (sic) of a problem, as I want to run both at the same time.  I know I can run two different hosts in my DAW to cater for this, but it rather defeats the object of having a single mixer.  This is even worse when I want to run VEpro with Mir Pro - as it is not possible to run the different plugins in one instance of MIR.  I am sure there is a workaround which I will bend my mind to (audio output from the DAW of the 32 bit plugin into the single 64bit VEpro perhaps) but is it not possible to have a Bitbridge in the 64 bit VEpro please - or am I missing something obvious?


  • Yes, you can use the audio input feature to mix and match if you wish, but I'm not quite sure what sort of plugs you want to use with MIR that aren't 64bit already. A bit bridge is a recipe for disaster, IMO, and I'm glad that VSL hasn't wasted time on trying to create one. You could always use J-Bridge if you really need to use 32bit plugs in the 64bit server.

  • As DG says, it is actually a design decision from our side not to do any bit bridging. We're advocates of bit-apartheid, since it gives better stability and performance.


  • OK, I can understand why you haven't gone for bitbridge.  I am just trying to render an old project using MIR.  It uses an old NI instrument I am particularly fond of - the Pro 53, which is 32 bit and will remain so forever more I guess.


  • Ok, Ok I have got it!  RTFM....took ages to find the Audio Input plugin.  Works like a charm.


  • FWIW: While won't advocate against "bit apartheid" (... what a word 8-o ...), I have experienced usable results with a demo-version of jBridge and MIR / MIR Pro.

    Kind regards,

  • I find it rather astonishing that your installer STILL doesn’t place the x86 and x64 versions is separate folders.  Kontakt and Play have both done this since they went x64.  But you’re the ones who update all the time.  After each update, I have to manually move the 32 bit versions into the x86 folder.

     

    Please…

  • Yes, please, two different plug install paths, for x32 and for x64 separately!

    Not that this is a big deal, but yes... I give my +1 for this also. lol

  • If you could add a VE Pro plugin channel, you could easily bridge plugins... It seems VE pro restricts hosting an instance of itself... Wonder why...

  • hi, i just switched to vienna ensemble pro 5. I was using ensemble pro 4 with jbridge but now, after switching, many j-bridged plugins are not recognized in ensemble pro 5(but they were ok in ensemble pro 4).For exemple SPL analog code plugins...

  • I jbridged ALL x32 plugins and VE Pro scans all of them, despite NaiveLPF... But, you can host all x32 in a x32 instance of VE pro... No more need to jbridged...

  •  Thank you for the new installer!!
