How do most of these audio applications behave in 64bit mode? If you
have applications that are running in a 32bit chroot can they
communicate with other applications in 64bit mode? Lets say you have
jackd and rosegarden running in 64bit mode. Can I connect to lets say
Fluidsynth or ZynaddSubFX in a 32bit chroot?
I also wonder about price/performance ratio and ease of administration.
Ignoring the fact that it make take a little extra work to get
everything to run smoothly do you find that the performace is worth the
price of x86-64 compared to say athlon xp? Is there a big boost in
performance in most audio applications. I most frequently use csound,
rosegarden, Fluidsynth, Lilypond, and audacity.
