Software Compatibility

All current software products from all three brands (TRAKTOR, MASCHINE and KOMPLETE) are fully compatible with macOS Sierra.
After intensive testing and close collaboration with Apple, we’re happy to report full compatibility and highly stable audio performance with all of our current-generation hardware and macOS Sierra.

However, the following discontinued devices will not be supported on macOS Sierra, or future versions of macOS.

TRAKTOR

TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 MK1 (first generation)
TRAKTOR AUDIO 2 MK1 (first generation)
AUDIO 2 DJ
AUDIO 4 DJ
AUDIO 8 DJ

KOMPLETE

AUDIO KONTROL 1
GUITAR RIG MOBILE I/O
GUITAR RIG SESSION I/O
RIG KONTROL 2
RIG KONTROL 3
KORE Controller
KORE 2 Controller

MASCHINE hardware (all generations) is not affected.

If you own any of the above devices, we recommend that you continue to use them on your current OSX version. Please understand that since these devices are no longer supported by NI, we cannot guarantee performance or compatibility with macOS Sierra, or future versions of macOS.

Plugin Alliance

Update 20 Dec 2016

https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/news ... ility.html
We’re very pleased to announce that with today’s release of version 4.4.1 of the All Bundle, all 73 plugins in the Alliance stable are now fully Sierra compatible, supporting Mac OS versions 10.8 through 10.12.
20 Sep 2016
We’re writing to let you know that in our qualification of Apple’s new Sierra OS (v 10.12) we have discovered serious problems with many Plugin Alliance products that primarily affect customers who use the Audio Unit format. Our developers are working hard on a solution but at this time we are recommending that all Mac based Plugin Alliance customers do not upgrade to Sierra. We will continue our qualification efforts and expect to announce full support in the near future. We greatly appreciate your patience while we complete our qualification process.

Universal Audio

Update 3 Nov 2016

UAD v9 Software is now out and is compatible with macOS Sierra.

Update 28 Oct 2016

https://help.uaudio.com/hc/en-us/articl ... ility-Info
UAD v8.7.4s (available here) allows Apollo and UAD-2 hardware and software to operate with macOS Sierra on Thunderbolt-equipped Macs. There are currently no known compatibility issues with UAD v8.7.4s and macOS Sierra.

Apollo FireWire operation under macOS Sierra is coming in the very near future. Full testing and qualification of macOS Sierra will arrive in early 2017.

Important: Except for UAD v8.7.4s, all versions of UAD software are incompatible with macOS Sierra.
11 Oct 2016 via email:
As you may know, on September 20th, 2016, Apple released macOS 10.12 Sierra.

It’s important to note that UAD/Apollo software is not compatible with macOS Sierra. Therefore, we recommend that you do not install this OS update.

In November 2016, we will have a UAD software update that allows UAD-2 and Apollo hardware to operate under macOS Sierra.* However, full testing and qualification will not come until early 2017.

Please note that the current version of UAD software, UAD v8.7, is tested and compatible with other versions of Mac OS X, including 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, and 10.11 El Capitan.

* Multi-unit FireWire systems will not be compatible with macOS Sierra in the November 2016 UAD software update.

Ableton

https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/artic ... patibility
Is Live 9 compatible with macOS Sierra?
We are not aware of any issues affecting the latest version of Live 9 under macOS Sierra. However, older versions of Live 9 cannot be expected to function flawlessly, nor is Live is supported on the beta version of macOS Sierra.

The latest Live version is available for download in your account, and we recommend making sure that your Live version is fully updated.

Is Live 8 compatible with macOS Sierra ?
Live 8.4.2 is not compatible with macOS Sierra. The latest operating system to support Live 8.4.2 is Mac OS X 10.9 "Mavericks".

Is Max for Live Compatible with OS X 10.9?
As of version 7.2.4, Max for Live will work in macOS Sierra. However, for users that upgrade the OS (as opposed to reinstalling it), it is necessary to perform a Java 6 SE installation a new time.

Steinberg

Update 17 November 2016

https://www.steinberg.net/en/newsandeve ... -3977.html
Since Apple released macOS 10.12 Sierra in September, we have been solidly testing our software products on compatibility with the operating system. Today it’s our pleasure to announce that the full range of current Steinberg software products bar Cubase iC and The Grand 3 are now compatible with the latest Apple operating system.
Original post

http://www.steinberg.net/en/newsandeven ... -3871.html
On September 20, Apple will release the new OS X version called macOS Sierra. We are about to test our current line-up of products on macOS Sierra. Therefore we strongly recommend waiting with the update to macOS Sierra until the entire compatibility chart for all Steinberg products has been published, especially if you rely on a trouble-free operation of our products.
