10.7: Troubleshooting 32-bit audio unit compatibility in Lion Apps
Upon opening Logic Express 9 for the first time after upgrading to Lion, I received a notification that some of my audio units were unavailable (one of these unavailable audio units was AmpliTube 3, which I use for all of my guitar tones!). Fortunately, the fix was very simple: I opened Logic Express in 32-bit mode, and when I returned to 64-bit mode, the previously unavailable audio units were functional again.

Here are the steps I took:
  • Close Logic Express.
  • Navigate to the Applications folder and open the info window for Logic; select its icon, and Control+click Get Info, or press Command+I.
  • In the Info window, click the box for 'open in 32-bit mode.'
  • Open Logic Express, allow it to scan the audio units and finish loading, then close it.
  • Open the Info window again and uncheck 'open in 32-bit mode' to return to 64-bit mode
  • All 32-bit audio units should now be available in 64-bit mode.

So, would performing this same procedure in QuickTime Player X fix some of the problems that I am experiencing with my Plantronics headset? Right now the headset doesn't work with speak selected text. However, it is working with all other audio files and google voice chat.

I recently installed Lion and now am not able to use my music on my Sonos system. Not able to do so until Sonos finds a solution to the new software. Not pleased with my new Lion.
