Pod Farm2 In Cubase Appears To Be In 32-bit Mode

Recommended Posts

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.

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...

I am experiencing this exact same issue!, It's hard to believe it's been over a year and the problem has still not been solved.

 

On Mac OSX both the 32 & 64 bit versions are written into the same plug-in, unlike Windows which uses two separate versions.

I spent some time on the phone with Line6 tech support and I was told "It's a problem with Cubase not recognizing the 64-bit Universal Binary in the VST plug-in" This is not true! Cubase has no problems recognizing or opening 64-bit plug-ins from any other third-party developer, they all work just fine and I have never seen this before. The POD Farm 2 VST plug-in is just simply not 64-bit. I've tried using Cubase 6, Cubase 7, and Reaper with no luck, also I've read about similar issues on FL Studio. I have yet to try Cubase 8 as it was just recently released but I'm guessing nothing has changed seeing as the problem lies within the POD Farm VST being 32-bit only. I've tried everything; reconfiguring the plug-in filepath, reinstalling both POD Farm & Cubase, I even tried reinstalling/upgrading/downgrading OSX with no success. The Mac OSX version of the POD Farm 2 VST plug-in will not run in 64-bit mode, I'm at a loss.

 

This is very strange becasue the standalone application runs in 64-bit, and Logic recognizes and opens the 64-bit AU plug-in just fine. Clearly something is not right here. A quick search on google revealed that I'm not the only one experiencing the issue,

 

here are other thread topics concering the same problem:

http://line6.com/support/topic/10985-pod-farm-25-in-64-bits-on-a-mac/

 

Really hoping for a solution in the near future

So it turns out that Line6 does not support 64-bit in Cubase for OSX. If you look at the Line6 website it states that it's

32-bit only in Cubase for OSX,

it says so right in the notes at the bottom of their POD Farm web page; http://line6.com/store/item/188

As Cubase 9 removed 32-bit plugin support, POD Farm have now become blacklisted in Cubase for macOS.
