  1. Great work team,
    i have use this program to Bridge my vst plug’s and wrapped with fxpansion (Vst to Rtas) and all work very well on pro tools i have 14 Go and pro tools use just 4 Go so i’m very happy now 🙂
    Thx and wait for the final realase

  2. Works fine! Used with T-racks, Izotope and Sonalksis plug-ins and they seem to work right, always under a good VST host such Cubase. Very useful tool I hope it continues under development. Cheers

  3. Waw….It Works!

  4. Seems to function very well on mac x 10.8 ps with 64bit ableton 9 12 ram go with Sylenth1 dune thank you.

  5. Works wonderful!y. I’m using live 9 64bit DAW and works 100% with no issues…that i’ve ran across. Definitely worth the money! I’d advise purchasing it if you want to use your 32bit vst’s in your 64bit DAW! Thanks J you are the man!

  6. Another thumbs up running ableton 9 64bit.
    Had one problem, it didn’t like the Novation Automap’ed versions of my plugins and caused 9 to “crash”
    But Ableton gave the option to ignore and the next try.
    All’s rockin now.

  7. ¡¡¡My Heroes!!!

  8. I’ve been using JBridge Mac for a while since a lot of plug-ins I need are 32 bit. Had a bit of a problem with some crashes and Joao was awesome with helping figure out why the crashes were happening. Thanks a million!

  9. Just installed the software, bridged Sylenth1 and opened it in Ableton Live 9, all whilst on a train within 10 minutes. Brilliant piece of software and does exactly what I want it to. Recommending this to all of my friends.

  10. This is perfect! Just got it running it is seriously a must have…You have my undying support for eternity because this is a necessity!

  11. i got jbridge sent to me 5 hours after i bought it not 48! it was in my junk mail and i didnt notice! this is not junk at all! joao has been helpful and i really recommend this too anybody in need of it. i am using sylenth1 in ableton live 9 and it is working like magic! FINALLY I CAN GET THINGS DONE!!!! i am so happy now thanks a million joao! 🙂

  12. GREAT!!!!!! This is what you all need! Just 1/2 hour after I bought it and magically everything works perfectly! Thanx forever Joao!

  15. I installed slate digital plug-in which is very resource hungry. It sounds great but kept clicking and popping but sound great. I thought I need a new Mac faster processor and more RAM. I was going to give my old Mac to my daughter. No need to buy a new Mac the bridge works great. Only problem my daughter will be disappointed.

  16. This is awesome. I had the demo, just bought it.
    It works exactly how it should, although the little window that comes up when hiding the VST GUI is a little annoying, but oh well. It works fine. 🙂

  17. So i got logic pro x, and I wanted to use Ozone 4, Kontakt, Reaktor, Waves, Sylenth, Albino, and Massive. The hardest part is finding the copied file folder in the new mac osx, just go to the “go” in the menu bar and search the direct path it tells you after scanning you vsts. Also buy ddmf and this and you are set to run everything. Thanks Jbridgem, you have made logic awesome and my recording even better.

  18. The Bridge wouldn’t work on my Macbook, something ended up being wrong with my file permissions. I contacted Joao and he responded within the hour, and within 24 hours we went from not knowing what the issue was to a complete fix!

    Joao has excellent customer service, and I highly recommend this product!

  19. Works well!!

    I was having problems with it, but I got great tech support and it’s all working again.

    Buy it!!!

  20. JBridge is truly amazing! I tried the demo and had to have it . It is simple and easy to use mainly because it does it for you , lovely. Highly recommend it to all. Tech support is on a level of their own , fast responses with great costumer service , Bravo Team . Keep it short and sweet go grab it !

  21. 5 Star! I had some problems with it at first but i just emailed them and i got a quick response and a solution which worked perfectly! 🙂

  22. Works well !! welcome 32 bitsssss …

  23. Thank you. It works very well with ableton 9. I like!!!

  24. Amazing application, it has been the best purchase of my life =D !! (Thank’s)

  25. I got Sylenth1, Gladiator, Omnisphere, and vanguard working on logic X using Maschine 64 bit host :)!!!

  26. Great program. Considering it’s worked flawlessly thus far and has allowed me the use of about $2k in 32 bit software I’d say that’s pretty damned good for a beta.

    Also, staff is very helpful, an important (and sadly rare) quality with software developers.

  27. […] There are a couple of solutions out there and the solution we have chosen is the usage of a tool called jBridge. You can find out details here. […]

  28. Got the Kronos to Logic X! Best of!

  29. Thank you, working great here. Ableton 9 x64 OSX with Sylenth Pro.


    Pretty much repeating what everyone else here has said but this small app works perfectly and costs next to nothing, and J is quick on the emails and super helpful. I don’t even notice this app running (I close the pop-up when I load this plugin GUIs and then move the plugin windows to a different screen) so the app is basically invisible to me. THANK YOU J FOR SAVING MY 32-BIT VSTs!

  31. AWESOME! This Software helped me solve all of my problems. Got VI ONE two years ago and just recently got Ableton Live 9. Ableton wasn’t reading the Kontakt Player 2 VST, and I was stuck for a long time…that is until jBridgeM showed up! Great work guys! Thanks soooo much!

  32. […] everyone is using a 64bit DAW but if not, there are some work arounds available like jBridge for Mac or […]

  33. Thanks for your fantastic software. I’ve used it for a couple of years now with host like Cubase and especially NOTION. Now with the new Yosemite I was afraid, that my unfinished works were wasted, but no: Your new update solved the problem once again. Thanks again, I most certainly will recommend jBridge to my friends and colleagues 🙂

  34. Worked well to rewrap iZotope Ozone 5 to run in Adobe Audition CS6 on a Mac running Mavericks 10.9.5. Thanks!

  35. using v0.9 beta for Yosemite….working great so far. had one crash after i update to yosemite but after rebooting and fixing disk permissions, all is running well. thanks again for this app. stoked i can use my 32bit plugins with Logic Pro X/Ableton 9. 2 thumbs up!!

  36. My God, something that works as advertised. Thankyou!!!!!!
    Thumbs up for PowerCore and Sylenth on Cubase Pro 8 Mac.

  37. Up and running with Mobius looper on Ableton Live 9 in about 10 minutes. Thank you…nice to have something that just works.

  38. This software rocks!!! I purchased vanguard by refx and I could not run it maschine 64 bit on macosx I found this software and now i can use vanguard 32 bit no problems. Thank you!!!!

    Ca fonctionne nickel avec les plusins Powercore y compris le Virus Access software que j’avais du laisser tomber sous Ableton Live 9 64 bits

    Un grand merci

    Hi J’s
    You save my life….
    Work fine with my Powercore plugins under Mac OSX 10.8.3
    Sincerely yours

  40. Very good JOB! It works like charm ! Now I can use my old plugs that I love.
    Thx a lot for this amazing tool. And the price is very cheap.
    waiting for a final release….

  41. Life saver. Thanks very much.

  42. Merci beaucoup pour votre travail!
    Je peux toujours utiliser certains de mes anciens plug-ins RND Digital que je n’arrive pas à remplacer! (particulièrement le Dynam-izer)
    Continuez ainsi!

    Thanks a lot for your great job!
    I can still use my old RND Digital plugs that i can’t replace (especially the Dynam-izer)
    Keep going!

  43. J, thanks for making this tool. Definitely worth the 10 bucks. I’m using it with Sylenth1 on Ableton 9

  44. Using yosemite and using the bridge to run Miroslav Philharmonik in Studio One 3 Pro. Works a treat!

  45. DOES ANYONE KNOW? – will this allow me to use the 64-bit instrument plugins from ‘Sampletank 3’ on the 32-bit Garageband ’11 (version 6.0.5)

  46. Just got jbridgem and am using it with Tracktion on Sierra. It works perfectly. I now have my Native Instruments B4 II plugin back!

  47. Jbridgem, works perfectly with Reason 9.5 vst 32bit! thank you!

  48. awesome work 🙂

  49. thx for this nice+good price app….

  50. Juts purchased the Windows version. Great job, well done!
    Now testing the Mac version, too!

  51. Just want to say thanks so much for doing this. It is so nice to be able to use those older, but beloved vsts, like the LFX1310, Livecut, or Berrtill. Some of those I worried I’d never get to use again!

  52. Just another Thanks for J`s Excellent tool!

  53. Thank you for the great app for us to use older Vst Plugs! You guys are amazing! Wish you all the best hope you come up with more and more great ideas in the future! Cheers

  54. Tried the demo and bought the full version as it works great with Mac High Sierra running Ableton Live 10 with my Focusrite Liquid Mix. Breathes new life into my liquid mix as I thought I could no longer use with my DAW, very pleased!

  55. omg!!! you have revived my fav reverb, the powercore’s maga verb!!!
    i’ve tried everything over the past few years, the mega verb has been the most missed and dearest long lost friend..
    thank you for the great work, please keep this project up. i’ll sure be referring other powercore users to it.
    you have no idea how significant this is for me, i’m absolutely floored by this finding today, thank you thank you!!!!!

  56. Does what it’s supposed to do, and does it well.

    I bought some AIR plug-in instruments (Loom II & Hybrid 3) months ago, but I couldn’t use them in MOTU’s Digital Performer, because they kept failing the “inspection” it does when first attempting to load the plug-ins. Very frustrating. And AIR tech support was of no help.

    After using JBridgeM, i can finally use the plug-ins I bought. And the price is nice. Very happy with the purchase!

  57. good and usefull
