Using jBridgeM in OS X Mavericks (10.9) and above

Some remarks if you’re using OS X Mavericks (10.9) or above:

– You should update to jBridgeM v0.8x or above.

– If your 32bit plugin is not working, please make sure first that you can run it in the 32bit version of your DAW in that same system. Some plugins have been reported to stop working, and in these cases, they cannot be bridged as well.

– I recommend that you disable App Nap for jBridgeM and the DAW that you’re using. jBridgeM operates as a background process communicating with your DAW, and disabling this option will ( or should, at least ) ensure that the OS won’t slow it down or idle it. In this example I used energyXT, but it will be the same for any other DAW:


( Do the same for auxhost and auxhost64, which you can find inside /Applications/jBridgeM )


– Some plugins may exhibit a problem where the GUI is not updated, if you see this happening, enable the new option “Force GUI refresh” ( jBridgeM v0.8x and above ), and re-start your DAW.

  1. Honestly, I never thought it would work!

    But just now, I managed to use jBridgeM at 64 bits, wrapped in Image Lines Minihost Modular AU, to successfully play and record the (IMO) best Hammond emu plug-in out there, the (still) 32 bit GSI VB3 – in Logic Pro 10.1, OS 10.9.5.

    Bravo! Of course I bought jBridgeM immediately, after such a Tour de Force.

    Thank you, João!

  2. Fantastic! Now I can use SampleTank, Miroslav Philharmonik etc in Ableton Live on my new MacBook Pro Retina running Yosemite 10.10.2. Thank you so much, what a bargain.
