    Heads Up 64 Bit'ers
    If your like me and wait patiently for your favorite plug-ins to go 64 bit, then you will want to know right away. I was notified that as of yesterday, 6-1-11, IK, Multimedia updated Their ARC (Audio Room Correction), TrackS Mastering Suite and Plugs as well as Amplitube all went 64 bit. So if you have any of these then just do your updates in your user area, If your considering them, 64 bit makes it one more reason to lean in that direction if your considering a similar product. I like easy in my DAW and 64 bit does run smooth!

    I understand, Waves has a large product line to work though so it stands to reason they are going to take a while. I spoke with some Software Manufactures at NAMM about the 64 Bit topic. One CEO put it bluntly, "it's a lot of work and puts a lot of strain on the programmers to keep up". Native systems are without a doubt better then ever with 64 bit, but like all technologies, there is the catch up factor... : >) Apple lead the way and I could hear the giant sigh of challenge Comming from the 3rd party software companies. So far I have several software applications I use that did the 64 bit move early on. The truth, that was such a relief on my system since those Apps were major memory a d CPU intensive plugs. The ones I can name that I've been using are: Celomony Melodyne Studio and Editor Toontrack Superior Drummer and EZ drummer as well as all other Toontrack Products IK Multimedia If anyone else has a list of Plugin/applications that have made the 64 bit leap, please list them here. I'm very interested.

    I understand that WAVES is a big company with a lot of products. But I'm starting to lose patience. I rattled their cage about a year ago, and along with what I can only describe as a "mini-tirade" against Apple for not giving them any lead time on 64-bit upgrade, said they were expecting it Jan of 2011. And I was sympathetic, because in all fairness, they do have a lot of products to upgrade. But now here we are in June. I have their Platinum collection, so a lot of plugins I have just gotten used to not using, as I'm not sure if I can trust that they'll give me the same results running on the 32-bit bridge as they would if I were just running Logic in 32-bit mode. Lucky for me, Logic's plugins, as a whole, work pretty darned good on their own. Just was nice to have some choices, different tone colors, etc. Come on, WAVES, catch up!

    Thanks Victor for the heads-up. I'm gonna get onto downloading the updates for T-RackS now! Hopefully Waves will follow suit soon. It has been a long time... but let's hope it's worth the wait and their plugins in 64-bit will be rock solid and excellent quality too! :) Rounik
