The most surprising thing in this article is that they had separately dedicated Quality Assurance resource. Knowing what a buggy mess Sonar was at that time it's hard to believe this article is authentic.

I'm sorry, thanks for correcting me. My memory isn't what it used to be. And my first version was only Pro Audio 7 I think.

Yes, Steve, that must be what I am half-remembering. I remember reading reviews back in the day stating that it excelled over other DAWs regarding audio recording, though I surely do not remember why!

I have a 32-bit distortion dll that is just better than anything else I've tried, so I keep using it because it sounds good! I have used it for all my "guitar" sounds for years. If support for 32-bit plugs ever goes away, I will cry. Here are examples of that sound from the now defunct Acmebargig Metal C-15 dll:

Most weird thing is that 32bit architecture is abandoned like something useless,when still there is tons of quality unique 32bit synths and fx many people use.

Those are some cool distortion sounds on those tracks. Were they all from Acme Bar Gig? I used to have that, and I see you can still download it here: http://www.grebz.com/simulator_freeamp_ ... p#metalc15

Some DAW developers have chosen to focus exclusively on 64-bit hosts. Cakewalk has built-in bit bridging for 32-bit plugins, so you can continue to use your favorites.

I think the biggest problem may be with the 32-bit plugins that are abandoned and no longer developed, so that they may become susceptible to becoming buggy as modern host software evolves, while they do not. If a dev chooses to keep supporting the plugin, then great, but that will not always be the case.
