You would not have to make any changes, just point to the 64 bit exe.
About speed, you would have to try to see.

What do I point to in the 64 bit folder.
In the 64 bit folder:
libsoxconvolver64.dll
libsoxconvolver64.dll
msvcp120.dll
msvcr120.dll
refalac64.exe
In the 32 bit folder:
libgcc_s_sjlj-1.dll
libsoxconvolver.dll
libsoxr.dll
msvcp120.dll
msvcr120.dll
qaac.exe
refalac.exe
The 32 bit encoder script references qaac.exe. There is no qaac.exe in the 64 bit folder. I tried copying qaac.exe to the 32 bit folder and that didn't work. I also tried pointing to refalac64.exe in the 64 bit folder and that didn't work.
Maybe the zip I downloaded is missing the 64 bit qaac.exe.
You are missing the 64 bit qaac.exe

Hi all
This thread seems to answer my question how to use qaac with dbpoweramp.
I have taken tscolin's latest script from post *7 and put it and the x86 qaac files into the CLI encoder directory. When I try to batch convert, I get the stdIn Pipe error that tscolin mentioned in post *1.
I have all the files from the qaac/x86 directory + encoder.txt in the CLI encoder directory.
What could I be doing wrong?
Thanks a lot
Solved
Looking at other encoder.txt files, I figured out that there need to be quotes around [outfile] such as this "[outfile]"
With this addition, the script in post *7 works
Here's the encoder.txt file as I am using it:
- added quotes around [outfile]
- added drop down to set target sample rate

Thanks for the help and changes!
I've made some simple formatting changes, moved things a smidge.
Thank you for all the support guys! I'm really happy to see other people using this! QAAC is still my preferred AAC encoder. I still believe (read: my opinion) Apple's AAC encoder to be superior to FDK, FAAC, or nero (especially nero, its ancient).Code:[codec] .m4a qaac.exe [msgifnoencoder] Before using this encoder a seperate component must first be installed from https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/ .

I had Batch Converter working perfectly on a different computer. Now I'm struggling to get it to work on a new PC. I'm using Reference 15.1 and the latest QACC.exe along with the most recent version of the script (copied from thread directly above). I am getting the dreaded "Error writing audio data to StdIn Pipe [clEncoder::EncodeBlock]". I can use the LAME MP3 with the same Output File locations, so file permissions are likely not the issue. Any suggestions?
This works on the other PC:

Make sure you have all the prerequisite libraries. For instance, install iTunes if you haven't already, and QuickTime if that doesn't fix it.
D'Oh. I had the PC plugged in but I didn't have iTunes installed. Thanks and the latest script works great!
Hi everybody.
Thank's a lot for this code, very useful to remplace m4a FDK AAC Encoder (that's seemed a good idea but it has hardware compatibility issues even in LC CBR).
However, it doesn't work with QAAC x64 version. No problem with x86 version (which is 33% faster than FDK AAC by me).
If someone has an idea to solve that. Thank you.
"Edit" : It seems that QAAC has the same hardware compatibility issue...so it must be a software compatibility issue of the hardware
Ok it's 4 years old but it doesn't seem a good reason to me. Finally the "old" good Nero AAC encoder is still very useful... Too bad it doesn't work with x64 dbPoweramp. I'll try with CLI encoder.
I'm still interested by the mean to use x64 QAAC with CLI Encoder.
I have no trouble using the 64-bit version.
I have installed iTunes 12.1.1.4 64-bit, and copied the content of qaac_2.47/x64 into the dBpoweramp/encoder/CLI Encoder.
My encoder.txt looks like this:

Thank you for your encoder.txt wich is a little different that Doug in Calgary's (tVBR commands are not the same and yours don't have Target Sample Rate option; why this differences ?). However, it doesn't work either ("Error wrinting audio data to StdIn Pipe [clEncoder::EncoderBlock]).
I'm using qaac 2.47 too but only the last AppleApplicationSupport.msi included in latest Quicktime archive (and in Itunes archive) as explained at https://sites.google.com/site/qaacpage/. I don't really want Quicktime or Itunes (especially Itunes) on my PC, and it works for 32 bit version, so it should with 64...
