1. Bug: RA files load but don't play. They play just noise. Realplayer plays them properly.
2. Feature request: Is it possible to take advantage of 64 bit capabilities for faster processing? I'm installing & using Audacity in 32 bit emulation mode on my 64 bit Windows OS.
Overall, great job; I'm using this for the first time & love it.

There are no plans I am aware of at the moment to release a separate 64 bit
