Hi all… Happy This Year!!
Second of two immediate questions:
I’m still staring at a virgin, pristine DAW… nothing has been installed yet.
The new machine is running Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) on an Intel i7-930, with 9GB of RAM. It will be used in conjunction with a MOTU 2408mk3.
I work primarily with Gigastudio 4 (works beautifully on my old 32-bit machine… never tried installing it as a 64-bit app, yet), although I do use Kontakt and various softsynths as well. I have lots of old VST2 plugins, all of which are 32-bit.
I haven’t quite wrapped my head around whether I can install Cubase 5.5 as a 64-bit app on the new 64-bit machine, and use it in conjunction with my other apps (some of which are 64-bit, and others of which are 32-bit)…
… or whether I must install Cubase 5.5 and everything else as 32-bit apps on the new 64-bit machine, in order to get them to work together properly.
Advice, pointers, a useful M to RTF, etc., would be very much appreciated!!
