I am presently considering buying Artist instead of Pro as I see that my needs can be met by the Artist version.

I noticed, however, that a feature in Pro, not in Artist, is "64-bit floating-point WAV recording and export'".

Does the higher precision recording provide me an observable (audible) difference in the final output?

I am not a professional musician. I make choral and orchestral pieces as a retirement hobby and, at best, will probably just stream my final products. So my gut is that I do not need 64bit. But, if this feature will make a night-and-day difference in my product, I will find a way to afford Pro.

Simple answer: S1 Pro can’t be justified by 64-bit FP alone. If that’s the only thing to maybe justify buying S1 Pro then stay with Artist. My $.02 :)

Thanks, that’s my gut, too.

The difference is further widened when I found out that version updates also cost a lot more for Pro than Artist.

Also did some light Googling on 64 bit WAVs and could not see any advantage on audio quality.
