I just finished installing Win 7 x64 on my newly upgraded PC, and i have a question about
how best to set up VST folders.
For people using a 64 bit system, do you set up
separate VST folders for x64 and x86 plugins, or do you put all the plugins in the same
folder? If the latter, does it matter where that folder goes -- i.e. can it go in the x86
Program Files folder, the x64 Program Files folder, or is important to put it somewhere
like, C:\VST Plugins ?
My new upgrade is a i5-2500k/ASUS P8P67 system,
replacing a Q8200. Haven't had a chance to do any benchmarking yet, but according to the
Windows Experience Index, the new CPU is a 7.5 (out of 7.9), the RAM is 7.6, whereas the
Q8200 had a score not much above 4. I can't wait to start making real time use of all the
added tracks, plugins, polyphony counts, etc that a Sandy Bridge system will allow, and i
definitely want to optimize my software setup.
