Converting 32-bit plug-ins using jBridgeM or 32 Lives (Mac)

  • Live Versions: 8.4 - 10
  • Operating System: Mac

Live 10 is available in 64-bit only. If you're using 32-bit plug-ins for which there's no native 64-bit version, you'll need to convert these using a third party tool like jBridge (VST only) or 32 Lives (AU and VST). Both jBridge and 32 Lives are paid third party products.

Note: If there is a native 64-bit version of your plug-in available, you should use that. Converted plug-ins should not be expected to be as stable as native 64-bit versions.

Note: Starting with macOS Catalina, 32-bit apps are no longer compatible with macOS.

32 Lives uses 32-bit code which therefore is not compatible with macOS Catalina.
If you wish to continue using 32 Lives, please continue to do so on macOS Mojave. 


Ableton does not provide any technical support for issues using converted plug-ins. In case you're running into issues, contact jBridge or 32 Lives support.
