Just wondering, why is 64 bits so much important for people?
I have win 7 x64 and can run 32 bit apps without problem...

I guess many people are moving to 64bit applications because that's what they're getting told is good -- and some don't play nicely with 32bit plugins. I don't have experience of this (along with MULAB, I use Reaper x64, which plays nicely with 32bit plugins) but it seems to be an increasingly common problem. Bit bridges don't always work. (The VST protocol is designed so that plugins run in the same memory space as the host; so a 32bit plugin expects a 32bit host; a bit bridge user interprocess communication to "wrap" the 32bit plugin in a 64bit plugin that the host talks to, whilst providing a 32bit host to the plugin. Plenty to go wrong...)
The only time 64bit is really useful, IMO, is if you've a big sample library (like my drum kits) - I've one that's bigger than my RAM... and I like to have several loaded. Disk streaming works, though. So I don't see a problem myself.

That looks like an objective reason to for 64 bits.
But i dissagree that the release should wait 'till x64 version is ready, i think that MUX should be released even in 32 bit format and windows only at the beggining.
A thing like the MUX in the VST world... i really think that can have a very big impact and long range... More versions and more platform support can easily come in a future as the prodduct grows in interest and userbase

Are VSTs even compatible with these platforms?
Are there any VST hosts available for ipad/android?
Would Mu-lab ever be made available for ipad/android?
I've been wanting to get a new laptop for music but thought maybe an ipad would be better. So many good music apps and addons are becoming available its fast becoming a viable alternative. Imagine using Mu-lab with a touch screen! Fantastic!
