I've been planning on purchasing a custom DAW for some time now. The plan was that it would be dual-boot with XP32 & XP64.
Just today, for the first time, it dawned on me that I would have to install all my programs twice. Somehow, I just never thought that through.
What else haven't I thought through? Is it really like two completely independent computers? What if I add new hardware? Do I have to install the drivers twice?
Most importantly, are there any 'gotchas'? Things to watch out for that could cause serious problems?
p.s. In case you're wondering why I want XP64, it's because I want LOTS of ram. Who knows how many sample libraries I will buy in the next few years. And yes, I know to check all hardware and software for 64-bit compatibility.
Thanks! - k
