Plugin Installation, X64 Or X86

Dear Renoise users,

I just installed windows 7 64-bit on my notebook so I could take full advantage of my 4GB RAM etc. I’ve got this noobish problem though:

How do I even work with this?
-Renoise is 32-bit.
-Most of the vsts I use are 32-bit. (tweakbench etc)
-Some of the vsts I use are 32 and 64-bit. (Native Instruments, Kontakt, Massive, or Cakewalk zet4+)

I’m confused :(

I think you pretty much answered your own questions…

The solution I propose is: Install a 64-bit Linux partition and run the 64-bit version of Renoise for Linux?

you could use jbridge jbridge

You can use it to ‘wrap’ plug-ins; so for instance you can use a 32-bit plugin in a 64-bit environment and vice versa. You can also use jbridge to use a 32-bit plug-in in a 32-bit host and bypass the memory restrictions that 32-bit imposes.

It works pretty well and a full license is about €15. I have to use it with Cubase as the internal VST bridge doesn’t work so well

Alright, thanks guys. So all this, 64-bit, +3GB RAM is actually all nonsense if you just use Renoise and/or Live…
