I am fairly new to music production in general,
but I have been playing the piano and the violin for ages.
Sylenth1 has been recommended to me by a friend as a good synth to practice (subtractive?) synthesis on. Is the current version compatible with Windows 8?
I wanted to download the demo, but googled first to check
if it's compatible with my OS and stumbled upon this forum.
Reading through, I guess the fact that the registration doesn't work
will not be an issue since I will be using the demo
so the "Thank you for trying this demo" nag
will be actually appropriate (lol).
I can get rid of it by downloading the beta anyway,
if Sylenth1 sounds good. Another friend told me it sounds "fake"
but I'll just see for myself I guess.
I already have a pair of okay monitor headphones
and an external USB audio interface.
But what about the crashes mentioned?
That would be a major buzzkill.
By the way, my OS is Windows 8 Professional 64-bit,
but Ableton Live runs in 32-bit as of now.
Can I still load 64-bit DLLs in a 32-bit software
and take advantage of my RAM and CPU architecture?
Trying to decide what demo to download, in case it works with my OS.
Cheers and thanks in advance for the info.
