    Rewire 64-32 bit bridge

    Rewire 64-32 bit bridge

    Way back in the Jurassic Period there were three types of dinosaur: Carnivorous dinosaurs such as T-Rex which ate only meat; Herbivores such as Diplodocus who ate only plants; and Ampexivores.

    This last group, the Ampexivores, had a voracious appetite for magnetic tape (and sometimes valves). These reel-to-reels would roam the ancient studios consuming all in their path while cave-engineers tried to fight them off armed with little more than splicing blocks, a degausser, some cotton buds and a sharpened chinagraph pencil.

    If an Ampexivore was caught, early studio engineers would try to domesticate them using SMTPE and coax them to work with the other creatures that stalked the studios of the Jurassic period. Usually with little success. The ‘tape eaters’ would regularly chew up the SMTPE stripes and spit them out.

    There is a cave painting of a suspiciously stripey faced recording engineer beating a two track TEAC reel-to-reel tape recorder to death with a bottle of tape cleaning fluid after a spectacularly unsuccessful live recording session.


    Then…

    A giant meteorite called ‘digital’ impacted the earth and wiped the tape eating monsters off the face of the planet.


    Soon MIDI evolved, followed by VST and Rewire. All the creatures of the studio lived together in perfect harmony; communicating freely for the common good.


    Except…

    We know this isn’t true don’t we boys and girls. The ancient monsters live on; frozen in amber and waiting to leap up and bite our arses off.

    Only now, they are called 32bit and 64bit.


    The 64bit plugins and the 32bit plugins are in a bitter feud. Neither will accept the other.

    Let’s say you have a 64bit host. We’ll call him Romeo. And he wants to get jiggy with a 32bit client called Juliet. It’s not going to happen. Fire up your trusty copy of Studio One 64bit and try to connect a 32bit rewire client and all you will get is “Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo?”

    64bit is good. It is evolution. It is survival of the fittest. But all your 32bit Rewire clients are now extinct.


    Or are they?

    Like a scene from Jurassic Park, your 32bit rewire clients can be mixed with frog DNA and brought back to life with this 64-32bit rewire bridge:

    I’ve tried it and it seems to work.

    Just don’t blame me if it bites you in half while you are sitting on the lavatory.

    Translation: A bit like jbridge, the above link allows you to rewire a 32bit client to a 64bit host.

    There is probably an ancient Japanese proverb that says something like: 'if it works, then it works'.

    There is definitely an old badger proverb that says "Never sniff a free vole up the chuff."

    This link worked for me.

    THX tB!

    It's a little nice to have, in some circumstances, anyway!
    Even I don't need it atm, but it opens up some possibilities....

    I Imagine of some older PCs with 32 Bits as a VST cluster + Reason 32Bit. There are some AoE or such systems out there. May it would work, I cant say it jet, worth to check the journey, if one get desire.
    I like to use reason as a rewire slave on the Cubase Desk. It has nice features - I've loved the Dr. Rex since the first release

    Easy install and uninstall

    I understand "nothing" on the website - do you? Without tBs Tip, probably I had never seen this
