Discuss how to use FL Studio
[You can only see part of this thread as you are not logged in to the forums]
You literally can't use more than 4 GB of RAM with 32-bit programs. For a DAW, that is basically nothing. Many of my projects require over 24 GB and dip far into my pagefile. I don't understand how restricting yourself to old systems which have been superseded in every way, shape and form by modern alternatives is (as Jason Greene put it) 'hip'. There is literally nothing to gain. Intel hasn't made 32-bit processors since 2011 (except for microcontroller processors for things like Arduinos, which aren't really designed for DAWs), and even then, the last ones they made were for the absolute bottom-of-the-barrel pieces of garbage that wouldn't be able to run FL Studio anyway. There are plugin bridges to run legacy 32-bit plugins inside 64-bit FL Studio, and 64-bit PCs can still run 32-bit programs too. Is there a single feature that 32-bit has over 64-bit? I can understand the appeal of retro 8-bit things, which sound very fun to play with; but even then, there is no chance of you running a high-end DAW like FL Studio on that kind of architecture. 32-bit support is the sort of thing that can seriously drag software back, and I think that it has been supported for plenty of time. For people who don't want to upgrade, they are still free to use 32-bit FL Studio 20 (or even earlier versions). I fail to see the reasoning of some people here.
