  • Will 64-bit Sonar files play back on 32-bit?

    Everytime we update sofware, my partner and I buy dual licenses so we can seamlessly float files back and forth. He does some of the pre-production work creating base tracks in B-I-A-B and exports them to Sonar - then sends them to me to record clients audio and mix, then back to him to master. His machine has crashed and he's thinking of building a W7 machine and updating all the programs to their 64-bit versions but the main studio (mine) is still running 32-bit. It has been rock-solid for years and I really don't like the idea of fixing what isn't broken. Will my XP machine and 32-bit Sonar Pro read his 64-bit files? And can I send him 32-bit for mastering?

    It is not essential to use the 64-bit version of Sonar just because you have a 64-bit operating system. The 32-bit Sonar can be installed too. Both versions can be installed independently alongside each other.

      The "long short of it" is ---> NO....

      You can not use a 32 bit proggie to open/edit/read a 64 bit file... Sry.

       

      Good Luck!!

        False.  I trade SONAR x64 project recorded in my 64bit machine with others on x86 machines all the time with no problems at all.

         

        Kind regards,
