Looking for recording software and a firewire or usb interface that is compatible with the 64 bit operating system. this would be used for recording acoustic / electric guitars...etc.

You are really getting into experimental territory here. Vista and the 64-bit OS are both unproven technologies and are not widely supported. I use Sonar 6 x64 with Windows XP Pro x64. This is the 64-bit version of Sonar running on the 64-bit Windows XP OS. It works fine for me. I don't know that Sonar officially supports Vista yet though. You might want to look at their x64 page anyway. They have a list of 64-bit compatible interfaces. You will need to research further to see if that also includes support for 64-bit Vista.

64 bit operating systems are in no way unproven. In fact several previous versions of microsofts operating systems (and other) have included 64 bit versions. What I'm finding though is that it's the market (makers of peripherals and software) that is slow to move to 64 bit even though it is ideal for music applications and recording.
I'll probably just have to wait or set up my machine to run both xp and vista (as a dual boot).

Hands down the best DAW software going. And, that includes the beloved PT.
I use it with Vista and it works just fine. Sonar 7 came out either today or yesterday so Ill be getting my upgrade shortly. use a Lexicon Lambda USB interface for traveling and the Onyx for in the studio.

Just curious, I was under the impression that 32 bit software will run just fine under Vista, however the only performance gain will be with 64 bit software. Is I right or Is I wrong....:BEER
