Lightbulb 64-bit Addressing: The Official Request Thread

This thread I’m starting is for us asking the great Phead powers within to upgrade DAWs like Reason, Record, and Recycle to the 64-bit world.

The main reason for 64-bit addressing in the programs is for future compatibility. With programs like Logic, Cubase, Studio One, and Reaper already 64-bits (and I’m sure a 64-bit version Pro Tools is on the way), software for Propellerheads will have to ensure complete compatibility with the major DAWs. 64-bit will also allow for better throughput to the CPU, increased RAM count, massive storage drive partition over 2.2TB, and better reliability. It should also show increase performance with SSD drives. The sound will still be the same, if not a little bit crispier, with less latency, which will give Reason and Record a 64-bit Floating-point resolution. Reason and Record does a great job with system efficiencies, and will get ever better with 64-bits.

With 64-bits, ReWire would have to be upgraded as well. ReWire is the link to the other DAWs to get data and sounds to and from. This is also a crucial function as even when the DAWs are 64-bits, without ReWire 64-bits; there is no way to get sound into your sequencer.
