Re: should 64 bit with 16gb be better than 32 bit with 4gb?

my impression was a plug in using 64 bit would out perform 32 bit especially with 4 x the amount of RAM RAM is the keyword (keyterm?)... 64 bits allows you to use more RAM. in my first, somewhat shortsighted, post... that's where my mind was... if Live can use all 32 GB and the plugins are limited ...

Re: should 64 bit with 16gb be better than 32 bit with 4gb?

Can you install 32 bit versions of Kontakt and/or Reaktor and only run Live in 64 bit? if so, maybe you can force the them to play reasonably while giving the host the headroom to oversee it all. Is that possible I was under the impression 32 bit plug ins would not work with 64 bit live I don't rem...

Re: should 64 bit with 16gb be better than 32 bit with 4gb?
