Adobe provides Flash Square Preview, a 64 bits version of the plugin (Safari launches in 64 bits mode under Snow Leopard, and then uses a 32 bits wrapper for the regular Flash plugin – that isn’t 64 bits -, leading to limited performance).

Adobe’s CS5 suite may finally bring 64 bits (then Cocoa) version of Photoshop for MacOSX. Moreover Flash tools will allow to develop native iPhone applications (that is by using a compiler that Adobe presented recently – in order to circumvent lack of Flash plugin in iPhone).

Spectrasonics announced 64 bits updates to Omnisphere and Trilian on Snow Leopard (beta versions, the final updates will be available by a month). Moreover 32 bits systems (Leopard or Snow Leopard started in 32 bits kernel mode for compatibility reasons) can also access to more than 4Gb of memory, thanks to a new Sample File Server, an external process (same trick as Kontakt 3.5 Memory Server).
Finally an iPhone application, Omni Live, will be provided for free at the AppStore. It will work as a remote controller for Live Mode, and then allow easy presets selection.

Logic 9.1 : 64 bits and restrictions

The 9.1 update to Logic Pro 9 brings support for 64 bits, notably for third-party plugins (the EXS24 still managed more than 4 Gb of memory – as well as Kontakt -, through an external process). To enable it, the 32 bits mode has to be unchecked from the application’s Informations panel. The 64 bits mode leads however to some restrictions.

VSL Vienna Ensemble PRO

VSL presents Vienna Ensemble PRO, a new version of its player. It is the first OSX host application that supports 64 bits AU plugins (Cocoa), and Leopard (10.5) is required. It can also manage 32 bits AU plugins (Carbon) on Intel and PowerPC (PPC64 is listed as working but not supported, however we don’t know if it just implies G5 support – that are 64 bits processors – in 32 bits mode, or the full 64 bits adressing on these processors).

The software can also host other vendors’s plugins (see the list here), and provides a networking mode (between mac and/or PC), that allows to share both audio and Midi, by using a simple Ethernet (Gigabit) connection. It is priced 145 euros.
