    Thumbs up Wondering About How Vista Performs for Audio Apps?

    I've been wondering about how well Vista will perform for DAWs in comparison to XP for quite awhile. I've not seen anything convincing until this:

    I'm a fan of Rain computers (though I cant afford one myself ) and they have provided what I think is a valid, fair performance comparison. When I think back on it, I was reluctant to move to XP because I thought it would be too bloated and performance would decrease in comparison to Windows 98. Boy was I wrong! From the looks of this article we might be able to say the same about Vista. I buy into their theory that Vista is more new technology friendly than XP, especially when it comes to multi core processors.

    Each system program is a child of its time and its environment/hardware, where it was programmed.

    It can become only better.

    Sonar 6 x64 edition seems to work quite well with Vista x64. That's assuming you have pretty close to current hardware and, of course, enough RAM. You might want to go to the Sonar site where they discuss the advantages of 64 bit computing on your DAW.

    If you're running regular Vista x32, make sure you have enough RAM also.

    Hi Stephen,

    you are right. In this days this is a big problem, but I think in the future all software providers will make new drivers available.

    That was always so. Give them some more time. I am sure that they are all working for best results... .
