Sound forge pro is 32 bit, yes.

Honestly I can't see how that's an issue, though; sound forge doesn't make use of nearly anything that would require that it be a 64 bit application. Windows has no issue running an app that is only 32 bit. You're not going to be using heavy sample streaming plugins in sound forge, and it's pretty hard to see what you'd do in Sound Forge that would require it, since it's really not meant to be a multi tracking application.

Sound Forge 11 runs just fine in Windows 7 x64. Honestly I have yet to come across a 32 bit application that did not run well in that environment.

If all my Vst plugs are 64-bit, then, in order to use them in Sound Forge, I'll have to install 32-bit versions of all of 'em to be able to use in Sound Forge... right?

Yes, you will, but really, using VSTs in sound forge is kind of useless, IMHO.

No... I agree with that to a certain degree; although, it's like.... if i'm given the opportunity to be able to use VSTs in it, I'd like to be able to take advantage of it. However, I realized that i'll just jBridge the whole Vstplug folder and be done with it.

Why would you say that? I consistently use UAD-2 VST plugins with SF 11.

I guess I've just never seen the point, but that's my own workflow.
