We’re currently testing compatibility with macOS 11 (Big Sur) and have not found any issues so far.

As with all major OS updates, we suggest not to update immediately before being sure that all applications, plugins, and hardware devices you use are supported by the new version.

Kazrog

https://kazrog.com/blogs/news/macos-big ... -statement
Kazrog has announced preliminary support for macOS Big Sur. While more thorough testing has yet to be done, we can confirm that our current plugins are working in hosts that officially support Big Sur at this time.

However, we strongly discourage most people working in the pro audio industry from upgrading to Big Sur, due to widespread incompatibility with a variety of audio software and hardware as of this writing.

IK Multimedia

Apple is releasing their new operating system macOS 11 (Big Sur) this month on November 12th.

To ensure that your IK Multimedia software and hardware products work as intended, we strongly recommend waiting to update until we have confirmed compatibility.

Preliminary tests using the macOS 11 (Big Sur) beta, suggest you may encounter compatibility issues, which are being validated with the official release of Big Sur now. For more specific information, please check back here if you have any concerns with your IK Multimedia products. We will continue to post any compatibility issues - and planned fixes if required - here and will update the IK FAQ as appropriate.

Nothing confirmed, yet, but an OTT Big Sur beta is out and it's also running in Rosetta2 on Apple Silicon.

Will you support MacOS Big Sur and ARM Macs?

We haven’t yet tested our plug-ins on MacOS Big Sur but plan to do so shortly.

We plan to release updates of all plug-ins including ARM binaries in early 2021.

These will be free updates for users of Power Suite 6, Master Restoration 6, and Dialog 2 plug-ins.

That hasn't changed for at least a year. Tread carefully.

TwistedWave

via direct inquiry, shared with permission
Hi Glenn,

Yes, according to my tests, and reports from other users, TwistedWave works fine on macOS Big Sur. I have fixed a couple of UI glitches with the latest version, TwistedWave 24.3, so be sure to use it. I found TwistedWave was working pretty well with Rosetta 2.

Regarding Apple Silicon, I certainly plan to support it. TwistedWave currently depends on a couple of libraries that are not completely ready for Apple Silicon, but I will watch that closely, and release an update as soon as possible.
