I have some issues with some VST plug-ins and hosts (32/64 bit compatibility, OpenGL compatibility) on Mac OS X, therefore I'm looking for VST bridge solutions.

Are there any free or commercial VST plug-in bridges for Mac OS X, like jBridge for Windows?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

Can you say more about what JBridge does, and which features you need? – ObscureRobot Jan 2 '12 at 13:46
jBridge hosts the plug-in in a separate process, for 32/64 bit compatibility between host and plug-in, among other benefits; hidden inter-process communication allows the total transparency of the usage of the plug-in. – François Becker Jan 2 '12 at 14:13
I edited your question based on your comment (and you can do this too) - please edit further if I made any mistakes or incorrect assumptions! – Warrior Bob Jan 2 '12 at 20:31
