64-Bit Plugins (Mac)

All current Spectrasonics instruments are compatible with 64-bit hosts.

If your host sequencer is 64-bit-capable, we suggest you run it in that mode so you can access any RAM you have in excess of 4GB.

32-bit hosts can only access a little more than 3GB of Virtual Memory.

To run your host in 64 bit mode, please locate the icon in your applications folder for your host.

Right click (or control + click) the icon and then Get Info.

In the window that opens, please uncheck "Open in 32-bit mode"

32bit mode

Reopen your host and it will scan for 64 bit instruments.

NOTE: Some current hosts, like Logic Pro X and ProTools 12, only support 64bit plugins.
