You can have problems if your RAM isn't bigger enough (1 GB or less),
because the applications in a 64-bit OS occupes more RAM.

Is there any advantage in using a 64 bit distro for audio? Do the
advantages outweigh the difficulties?

I'm expecting a new computer to be delivered today and am trying to
decide what to install...

What difficulties? I run both 32- and 64-bit Linuxes, and have no difficult=
ies with either one.

I can't imagine why anyone would run a 32-bit Linux on a modern process=
or. Virtually every processor made today is 64-bit. Even the little old dua=
l-core ARM processor in my wife's netbook is 64-bit!

64-bit gives programs access to more on-chip registers, and removes the nee=
d for the silly physical address extension (PAE) stuff.
