macOS Ventura audio apps and plugins

It’s that time of year again! This post is for compatibility news related to macOS Ventura (macOS 13), which was released today. This year, we’re switching things up and moving this here to the news page. If you have your own updates, comment below or on our forum.

We will continually update this post, linking directly to developer compatibility statements where possible. Where macOS Ventura compatibility is unknown, we’ll simply provide a link to the most likely source of updates and try to circle back later.

As always, triple check everything on your system before a major upgrade. Tip: Listings are alphabetical, but you can also use your browser’s search function to get where you need to go.
