Should I download the 32-bit or 64-bit version?
The advantage of 64-bit is mainly being able to use more than 4 GB of RAM, and that the 64-bit version runs slightly faster. Whether you are using a 32-bit or 64-bit version, Renoise's internal audio precision remains exactly the same. To run the 64-bit version, your OS must be a 64-bit one. If in doubt, use the 32-bit version. It will always work on any OS.
- If you rarely or never use plugins, and have a 64-bit OS, go for the 64-bit version of Renoise as well. The 64-bit version can use more than 4 GB of memory and will perform a little better.
- If you use a lot of plugins, your OS is a 64-bit one, and most of your plugins are available as 64-bit plugins, then you might also want to go for the 64-bit version of Renoise.
- When ReWire is an important part of your workflow, make sure that both the ReWire host and slave (Renoise and some other application) are both either 32-bit or 64-bit. ReWire does not work across the "bit boundary".
