Default Self humiliation time again...

After dithering for a couple of years, I re-installed Reaper on my Mavericks based Mac Mini Server.

How do I fins out if I am using the 32bit or 64 bit version of iOS Mavericks and any of the existing plugins on the machine? (Like Logic Pro9 ) According to the D/L page Reaper 6.18 should work in 64bit if that is what I have installed already, but...
Good news is that my Lovely Liquid Mix 32 still works just fine.

Mavericks is 64 bit OS compatible which also will run 32bit drivers as well. You can go up to Mojave and still run 32bit apps and drivers . After Mojave its 64 bit for everything or you are screwed.

Im running a Steinberg MR816X here on 32 bit drivers with High Sierra BTW, Reaper runs fine.
Ill move up to Mojave eventually and stop there. Sad part is I cant even run iMovie nor the current LogicProX here as I need Mojave as a minimum and a $225 video card upgrade to run Metal

If ya still running Logic9

If its all working then.....

Note: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is the last release that a 32-bit Intel Mac can run, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and up are, by default, 64-bit

Thanks, Shanabit! I will be doing some exploring now I have a clue as to where to go. FWIW, my RME Babyface (the original) is working just fine with the mac Mini.

Interesting. I did the holding buttons down when booting to get into 64bit from 32 and it worked great. Logic Pro 9 was immediately faster & smoother, so I will now put 64bit reaper on there too. Mind you I will have to go see how to switch to 64bit permanently assuming that I can...
Thanks again for the tips.

Darn! I have spent a day learning about Macs & now have a new hard drive ready to replace the crummy 5400rpm ones Apple supply, plus I have learned how to set up and use Timeline at last!

OK, enough. Looks like I am finally getting to grips with Mac OS X.

Ya doing good there. Me, Im OUT after this MacPro dies. Real tired of the chronic OS upgrades that kill software compatibility .

1. Cant run current Logic. Need video card and Catalina
2. Cant run iMovie.

Im DONE with Apple. Dont get sucked down that road its a money suck with ever changing connectors, OS and CPUs now since ARM is out. That will take 2 years for the dust to settle. I went through the last one from PPC to Intel. Im not doing that again to end up with the same functionality I had before the change.
