It really depends on the software. I'd like to think a lot of programs will work, but not every developer of music software is jumping on the 64-bit bandwagon just yet. Odds are you'll find programs are more compatible with Vista then with XP-64 bit (as was my experience), and if you run into trouble there's more chance of the company that made the software being willing to help, but you could still run into issues you just aren't able to solve in some cases.

For what it's worth, I have EWQL symphonic orchestra silver (the non-play version) and it runs just fine on Vista 64, which is more than I can say it did on 64-bit XP where even trying to open it immediately crashed my computer. Never could get it working on XP. All of my other plug-ins I've installed have worked fine as well. Other people may have differing experiences however.
