wine works on x86_64, but you can't load 32 bit plugins of any type into
a 64 bit host application (unless the plugin API doesn't use pointers
for anything and has all other type widths defined independently of the
CPU type).

so basically, yes, 32 bit all the way if you want to use
firefox/audio/other plugins.

most 64 bit systems these days have better system busses and processors
that are better at the kind of floating point work most audio apps
require. thats really about it.
