I am running Cubase 7 on iMac OS X 10.8.5.  The POD Farm 2 plug-ins look like they're being bridged from 32 bit, i.e. they appear in small windows that you click on to edit.  This greys out the rest of Cubase whilst you edit.  The POD Farm pages state that the plugin is compatible with 64-bit DAWs but something seems wrong on my system.

You might try finding the directory where the POD Farm VST's are stored and moving the non-64 bit ones to somewhere Cubase cannot find them.

I located the vat files in Library/audio/plug-ins/VST/line 6.  There was only one copy of each VST.  I decided to delete them and reinstall from the 2.55 download.  The VSTs were recreated in the same folder and, again, there was only one of each VST.  I started Cubase and they would only open as though they were 32-bit.  I checked the Cubase VST plugin page and it is pointing at this folder.

Not sure where they install on a Mac, but in Windows the 64bit files get installed in a separate directory.  You might want to try to find them and point Cubase at them

I just installed PF 2.55 on my Mac and you are correct.  It does not seem to install both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions as it does in Windows

The POD Farm 2 application is running in 64-bit mode.  Curiously, if I look at the info on the VSTs, the Mac declares their kind to be Pro-Tools Plug-in (32-bit).  The Open with drop down only offers ProTools.  If I search for others Cubase is greyed out.

Pro tools uses RTAS right? i don't know that those are supposed to be 64 bit, just the VST's to my knowledge.

but admittedly i don't use pro tools so i may be off.

RTAS for PRO Tools is 32 bit

I experimented by opening Cubase 7 in 32-bit mode and the POD Farm plugins all appeared correctly.  So, this appears to be some sort of bridging issue in Cubase?  I thought the Line6 plugins were 64-bit.  They're described as being VST 2.4 (i386) in the Cubase plugin information page.

I came across a third-party VST bridging tool: JBridge, for which there is a Mac variant.  I loaded the demo and all the POD Farm VSTs loaded up correctly.  I'll have a play and report any downsides.

Hi, I am running VST on Mac 10.7.4 and have the same problem. The standalone runs on 64, but not the plugin. Can anybody confirm? Thanks

Pod farm 2.5 acts like it's a 32bit plug in Cubase 7.5 on a Mac Pro. Why is this still an issue???

 

Line 6 should get this done already, it's been months since they went 64 bit. Cubase 7.5 in 64 bit crashes when using a 32 bit plug so this is a real drag not to be able to use Pod Farm at all...
