I am detecting a certain alarmirsm in Apple users, because the new version of MacOS, Catalina, will not support 32 bits. So, many DAWs are not going to support 32 bit, probably migrating their most important software, all to 64bit.
The issue is that users have been living with 32 bits and 64 bits for many years. This is a huge problem for developers, who even have to launch 2 different software packages, with the enormous work that entails.
In addition, a 32bit operating system is limited to using only 3GB of RAM. It is reasonable to abandon 32bit software development, even if there are programs that do not need 64bit to function properly.
I understand that in Renoise this is also a drag. I think it is better to dedicate yourself fully to 64bit. If it is possible to continue supporting 32bit add-ons, ok. But it is very preferable to waste time in development in 64bit.
I think this situation is the direct fault of the developers, who are still developing in 32bit, and can do so in 64bit. Now many people are going to protest, but we will have to move forward in some way so that the entire time of software development is concentrated in a single package for each operating system. There are many fewer problems, and more advantages also for security and stability.
I believe that we are all going to lose many plugins along the way, which are made only in 32bit, but we will have to settle for that and move forward. In fact, Renoise 3.2.0 has graphic problems using 32bit add-ons. And you must support this 32bit software. Do you see the extra work that all this implies? If Renoise only supported 64bit, everything would work better and there would be more time to improve the 64bit package.
What bothers you personally about this whole matter?
