Arturia

https://www.arturia.com/faq/utilization ... os-big-sur
We are currently in the testing phase for our products to ensure compatibility.

Until thorough testing with the final release version of Big Sur is conducted, we cannot guarantee full compatibility with all of our products.
Update
All V Collection 8 individual instruments are now compatible with MacOS Big Sur when launched in standalone mode.

In plugin mode, compatibility will depend on your DAW. Please check your DAW’s compatibility on their website.

Our utilities are also fully compatible with Big Sur:
  • Arturia Software Center
  • MIDI Control Center
  • AudioFuse Control Center
Please also note that for the moment, Arturia products are not fully tested on computers with Apple Silicon processors.

We are actively working on the M1 certification, we recommend you to refer to this page regularly, which will be updated as soon as possible.

Soundtheory

via email
This week sees the release of both macOS Big Sur and the shipping of the first Apple Silicon machines. Gullfoss should be compatible with most installations running Big Sur.

Gullfoss is expected to work seamlessly on the new M1 Apple machines. Currently, it does so through the Apple’s Rosetta 2 emulation system - which is transparent to the user.

Slate Digital

https://slatedigital.zendesk.com/hc/en- ... patibility
We're currently aware of some critical issues using Slate Digital/All Access Pass products in macOS Big Sur. We ask for your patience while our development team works out the issues and to wait to update your system until we announce official support for macOS Big Sur.
Update 1 Feb 2021
MacOS Big Sur (11.0.x) is now officially supported on Intel Macs!
https://slatedigital.zendesk.com/hc/en- ... rocessors-
Slate Digital software and All Access Pass products are not yet compatible with the new Apple M1 computers (Apple ARM processors). Please understand that that updating our entire product line to run natively on a new processor is quite a time consuming process for our developers.

Therefore the Apple M1 (ARM) updates won't likely be available until later in the year (2021).
But they can work under Rosetta2. Check the site for details.

Waves

https://www.waves.com/support/tech-spec ... quirements
We are happy to announce that all Waves V12 plugins and Waves V11 applications (eMotion LV1, SuperRack, SoundGrid Studio, StudioRack, SoundGrid Driver) are now officially supported on macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 on Intel-based Mac computers.

New Macs with Apple M1 (ARM-based) processors are not yet officially supported.
Update 31 Jan 2021

https://www.waves.com/support/waves-wit ... processors
Waves with Apple M1 Processors and Rosetta 2 Emulator

Waves software is not yet officially supported on Apple Computers with the new Apple Silicon M1 processors.

We are working on providing official support. We expect developments in the near future and will update this page with new developments as they are available.

In the meantime, here are our findings:

Pro Tools 2020.12, Ableton Live 10, FL Studio 20.10, Studio One 5, Reason 11, Bitwig Studio 3.3, Digital Performer, Adobe Audition 2020
These DAWs have not yet announced official support for M1 processors. However, we have found that Waves V12 plugins load and work, when these DAWs are running in the Rosetta 2 emulator environment. Still, this is not official support, Waves Support will not be able to troubleshoot technical issues.

Steinberg

https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-u ... patibility
While many of our products are compatible with macOS Big Sur on Intel-based systems, please note that we cannot recommend using Apple Silicon-based systems for the time being until we have completed our tests or released updates to make our software and hardware compatible.
Update
While many of our products are compatible with macOS Big Sur on Intel-based systems and can be used on Apple silicon-based systems using Rosetta 2, please keep in mind that other software and hardware you intend to use (e.g. plug-ins and drivers) need to be officially compatible with macOS Big Sur (and Apple silicon-based hardware) as well!
You can now check out compatible hardware and software at the link above.

We are happy to let you know that all of our plugins have been tested and are compatible with the recently released macOS 11 Big Sur.
We would also like to let you know that soon we will be building updated versions of our plugins with native support for M1 and other Apple Silicon processors. All of the plugins in the legacy and the new collections will have two types of installers each, built for both older (10.6-10.14) and newer (10.9+) versions of macOS.
