    Tracking Down 32-bit Plugins
    I know I have some old 32-bit plugins for Logic Pro from the past. Updated to LPX and have not noticed anything I currently use is missing. But, I know there are some old ones I've probably not touched in ages, and they're now eating up needless drive space. Thus my question; How can I track down what plugins I have installed that are 32-bit, and what is the best way to go about trashing them from my system?

    Re: Tracking Down 32-bit Plugins
    Hi BenB, Do you still have Logic 9 installed? One way would be to open Logic 9 in 64-bit, then click on an insert on a channel strip. All your 32-bit AU plug-ins will be listed under "Audio Units (32-bit)" in the menu. You can do the same for instruments. The 32-bit plug-ins will be listed under "AU Instruments (32-bit)". You could delete them from HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components, but I would leave them all installed. They probably don't take much space and you will still be able to use them in Logic 9 and other 32-bit DAWs. And have a look at this Hub article by Rounik Sethi where he explains a workaround to use 32-bit AU instruments in Logic Pro X: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/hub/logic-pro/how-to-run-32-bit-plug-ins-in-logic-pro-x[/url] Cheers! :) Christian

    I just want t clean out old, useless garbage on my Mac, that's all. I forgot all about launching LP9 in 32-bit mode, great suggestion! I've actually not touched LP9 since LPX came out. I was about to uninstall it, too.
