max 6 – 64 bit

December 14, 2011 | 8:59 pm

Hi list,
I’m reading max 6 is a 64 bit software.
Does a 64 bit audio software has a better audio quality? How it happens?
All best

Hi Federico,

I guess you’ve misunderstood this. Max is a 32 bit application. On the other hand, the audio bit depth in Max 6 is 64 bits floating point instead of 32 bits floating point. This means that the dynamic range of the signals is bigger (approximately the double in decibels), but this has nothing to do with the processor instruction length.

Hope this helps,
Ádám
