Welcome back, dementedchord. :wave:


The reason we haven't posted much about 64-bit virtual instruments is that it's a relatively new development and far from all-encompassing.


You have VIs like Play that offer 64-bits in standalone mode but not as plug-ins. And you've got Kontakt, which can work like a 64-bit plug-in inside a 32-bit DAW.


Most DAWs are still 32-bit, so 64 bit plug-ins are of limited use. Logic has recently implemented as 64-bit mode, and Spectrasonics issued 64-bit beta versions of Omnisphere and Trilian last week. (Stylus RMX was already 64-bit.)


The VSL Vienna Ensemble Pro offers hosting for both 64-bit and 32-bit plug-ins and interfacing with DAWs, and it's proving to be a popular way to access 64-bit plug-ins.


That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Just found out tonight that the little Cantabile sequencer/VST host has both 32 and 64 bit versions - ranging from a free one to a $129 or so full-featured one. I'm going to load the free 64bit one tomorrow on the new 64bit DAW and see what it will do. The download is only about 5 megs - makes a real quick way to do a quick check out.
