I'm not sure if I've ever actually updated Reaper before. Does an update keep all my settings/sessions/templates, etc? It seems I'd be safe but I wanted to double check. I've been having some massive issues with my computer that is not even 2 years old, 16GB RAM. I load a single guitar chain (TSEX50, NadIR, EQ) on a folder track and it is totally impossible to record anything. Tried setting my buffer to something crazy like 512 and still, so much cracks and pops. What has occurred to me is that, when I installed Reaper on this machine (64 bit), the 64 bit version was buggy as hell for some reason, so I installed the 32 bit version. I'm starting to think that this may be a big part of my problem.
