64 bit or 32 bit install question Sonar 8.5.3


My DAW died a few months back. Now I miss it, I want to load Sonar 8.5.3 on my Dell 64 bit Windows 8.1 computer. All of my drivers are 32 bit and I am still using my Echo Layla 24/96 as my audio interface, and an old SW 1000XG as my on board synth. I want to also use them using an outboard PCI 4 slot box from PCIE for those items. I can install Sonar as either 64 bit or 32 bit, I am thinking that if I install the Sonar app at 64 bit my 32 bit drivers will not really work as well. Any help appreciated. Question 2 is anyone still using the SW1000 XG on later versions of the Sonar on a 64 bit OS computer?. Anyone know if the Layla 32 bit drivers will load on a 64 bit computer?

I answered my question of the Layla 24 96 drivers. I just downloaded the 64 bit drivers for Vista and XP Pro 64 bit, now to find out if I can still use the SW1000XG 32 bit drivers on a 64 bit Sonar install.


By the way I am going to get a new Audio interface and just go from there, I already have all of my important audio software installed on one computer, which I did successfully yesterday. Now to get all my data off of the 4 drives that came out of my now defunct DAW.
