Winter is back with a vengeance, ice on the roads here.
The temperature raise appears to happen only on the MBP not the MacPro.
Believe me, I wish you could have had a glass of burgundy and looked over my shoulder in realtime, and hey, big thanks for looking at this stuff here, it sure was helpful to run it by someone who has much more mac experience! For now I did not make a clean install of the SL evaluation on my MCP, I migrated my settings and applications so I can test what works and what does not.
But as soon as my main instruments are full 64 bit, I will change that. Omnisphere and Trilian are around the corner, leaves only Kontakt, Kore 2 and Komplete 6, but talking to the chaps at NI in Berin, this might take a while, unfortunately.
Having said that the NI Kontakt "memory hack" does a good job running memory server.
Let's talk 64bit for a second if you don't mind.
What puzzles me is this; I boot into Sl per default using 32 bit. However, 64 bit applications will show as 64 bit in activity monitor, such as finder etc. etc., but not only that, also true 64 bit applications such as Adobe Lightroom will show as 64 bit.
But what does that mean?
Will these 64bit applications have the larger memory adress room available, although I booted into the 32 bit kernel?
I assume they won't, because I am still in a limited 32bit kernel, would that be right? Hence I would need to boot into the 64bit kernel to take full advantage of 64 bit applications.
But why will Lightroom show as a 64bit application and Logic 9.1 will not?
