Synapse Audio has announced that native 64-bit versions of all of its Windows VST instrument plug-ins are available now to all registered users, free of charge.
The 64-bit editions offer substantial performance gains over the 32-bit editions:
- Toxic (1.4x more performance)
- Hydra (1.7x more performance)
- Scorpion (1.2x more performance)
- Plucked String (1.3x more performance)
- Poly-850 (1.8x more performance)
The measurements were made using the default patch at maximum polyphony in the 32- and 64-bit editions of Synapse Audio's Orion.
The 64-bit plugin editions have been tested in Cubase 5, Orion 64 and Sonar 64.
