So you've got a shiny new Mac, the latest Mac OS running in 64-bit mode. Potentially musicians can utilize almost unlimited amounts of RAM, right? Mo Volans shows how to make the most of 64-bit mode!

过渡到64位可能不会有你有想过的东西。对于许多一个漂亮的透明的举动,但也有一些东西值得思考,以确保您的系统处于最佳表演......再加上它很高兴知道引擎盖下是怎么回事!


1 - 使用一个64位的工具

有几个酷关于这一点公用事业不仅告诉你,如果你的Mac

我使用的启动模式选择,可以从MacUpdate这里下载: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/32252/32--or-64-bit-kernel-startup-mode-selector

正如你可以看到当这对正在运行的1酷睿2 MacBook Pro的一切是64位和兼容,但使用时,旧的Mac临2,1有一些东西失踪。这是有用的信息,真正让您知道您的系统正在做什么。

A newer MacBook Pro shows a fully 64-bit system.

一个新的MacBook Pro的显示完全的64位系统。


与64位引导系统,可以利用64位计算能力的应用程序和更重要的是解决超过4GB的RAM,32位系统只限于。

While an older Mac Pro is able to run 64-bit apps it still shows some 32 bit architecture

虽然旧的Mac Pro是能够运行64位应用程序,它仍然显示了一些32位架构。


2 - 确保您的应用程序在64位开放

即使您的系统都成立了运行在64位,的确是在64位模式启动,如果您的应用程序arent 64位计算能力或运行在正确的模式,你不会采取可能的性能提升的优势。

第一步是确保您正在运行最新版本的任何应用程序的运行。如果您正在运行的Logic Pro(或任何其他的苹果App)将通过软件更新的照顾,否则你将需要访问制造商网站。

一旦所有的应用程序,划伤,您可以检查,如果他们在打开所选择的应用程序和要获取信息的64位。您现在应该看到一个在32位模式中打开 。确保这是选中的,因为有时它被默认选中。

Ensuring Logic Pro will open in 64-bit

确保在64位的Logic Pro将打开。


很明显,你可以勾选此框,如果你需要打开您的应用程序在32位模式。

32 bit mode can be engaged at any time

32位模式下,可以在任何时间从事。


3 - 更新您的插件

它可能看起来有点明显,但简单地更新您的应用程序不会确保任何插件和扩展,在运行64位。这些将要更新以及。

许多插件商也开始迁移到64位,所以你可能会发现,一些我最喜欢的是完全的64位准备。 Native Instruments公司在这一领域的先驱,并已确保其整个产品线在64完美运行。

A lot of companies have already updated their products to 64-bit

许多公司已经更新了他们的产品,到64位。


如果你的插件尚未更新到64位最DAW系统具有一些32位的桥梁,让您在64位模式运行的DAW,但仍然运行3​​2位的插件和工具。

A 32 bit bridge will allow you to run 32 bit plug-ins in a 64-bit environment

一个32位的桥梁,将允许您在64位环境中运行32位的插件。


4 - 检查什么在运行64位

如果你是好奇,想看看哪些应用程序和实用程序在64位或32位系统上运行,你可以使用,包括与OSX的活动监视器, 您可以在“应用程序/实用工具/文件夹中找到活动监视器- ED]。只需打开它,并在最右边,您会看到一个类型的列。这里你可以查看每一个具体的活动正在运行什么模式:

The Activity Monitor will allow you to see exactly whats running in 64-bit

活动监视器可以让你清楚地看到whats运行在64位。


5 - 升级RAM!

现在你知道什么是运行在64位(以及什么不是),真正需要更新的系统你需要尽可能多的RAM中运行,你可以躺在你的手的优势。

Running as much RAM as possible will help to take advantage of a 64-bit system

尽可能多的RAM运行,将有助于64位系统的优势。


一些程序将受益于这种升级比别人多,但如果你沉重的仪器运行的会话,使用大量的样品,你应该真正看得见,摸得着的利益。我继续加载我的Mac Pro与16 GB和我的笔记本电脑,有8 GB,并已注意到改进都使用64位的Logic Pro。

    Just wanted to clarify something. Mo mentions, "With your system booted in 64-bit you can take advantage or 64-bit capable apps and more importantly address more than the 4GB of RAM that 32-bit systems are limited to." My MacPro 1.1 will only boot into the 32 bit kernel. But, as long as the app is 64 bit, I can address more than the 4GB of RAM that 32-bit APPS are limited to.

    Hey all, 64-bit presents a significant challenge for those wanting an efficient portable DAW system. First, most MacBooks, even relatively recent MacBook Pros have restrictive amounts of RAM space. The 4Gb limitation of 2010 models means the move to 64-bit is essentially valueless, while the most recent can only be expanded to 16Gb. So we've effectively seen a software limitation being replaced by a hardware one. The move to 64-bit also seems to have placed a greater burden on individual threads used during audio processing. Prior to the move to 64-bit I rarely saw my CPU being overwhelmed in relatively simple arrangements, now a single instance of, say, Native Instruments' Razor can be too much. Native Instruments though leading in the move to 64-bit seem to be the worst offenders, especially as their instruments are not multi threaded. The upshot is that the move to 64-bit has simply pushed the bottlenecks of music production further upstream and until Apple develop laptops with suitable specs to cope, it will actually prove an impediment to many.

    Unfortunately, a couple of my plugins haven't been updated to 64 bit (Miroslav, Addictive Drums) and I find the 32 bit bridge isn't very efficient. Miroslav won't even boot via the bridge in 64 bit mode, and Addictive Drums won't be making a free upgrade for Mac anytime soon, as they say that the coding in 64 bit will have to be re-done from the ground up. I am just glad that I didn't upgrade my RAM when it would've cost me €500.00!!!
