Synapse Audio introduces Orion x64, the 64-bit edition of its music production package for Windows XP64 and Windows Vista 64. The new edition has substantial technical advantages over the 32-bit edition. First, the restriction to about 2.5-3.5gb of usable memory on 32-bit systems is lifted, which benefits memory- intensive VST plugins such as sample-based instruments. Second, 64-bit software runs significantly faster than 32-bit software. CPU-Intensive plugins can gain up to 30-80% in speed, allowing for more complex projects.
