Yes, there are 64studio and so on,
but problems are with VST in ardour2,
and other problems with running 32bit (proprietary) sw on 64bit.

I've reinstalled ubuntufeisty64 to ubuntustudio(32)
and everything is even slight faster.

Correct me, but all major benefit from 64bit
is ability to address more than 4GB RAM.
There was no speedup running native 64bit apps on 64bit system for me.
See article about such benchmark a month ago on phoronix.
