IK Multimedia

https://www.ikmultimedia.com/faq/index.php?id=1399
While we have yet to establish full compatibility with macOS Big Sur, our tests show most of our products are working properly, with some exceptions listed below.

Below is a list of confirmed compatibility issues which will also be updated as we move forward:
  • AXE I/O Control Panel: Control page values reset on edit.
  • AXE I/O SOLO Control Panel: Control page values reset on edit.
https://www.ikmultimedia.com/faq/index.php?id=1412
Most IK products are compatible with M1 macOS systems using Rosetta 2.
(See website for products that are compatible with and without Rosetta.)

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.

TwistedWave

via direct inquiry, shared with permission
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.
Update 16 Feb 2021
TwistedWave 25.0 is now optimized for the M1 chip.

Auburn Sounds

https://www.auburnsounds.com/blog/Ready ... licon.html
Our plug-in line now support macOS 11.0 "Big Sur" and Apple Silicon. Upgrade is necessary for Big Sur, even without Apple Silicon.

What does this mean for performance on the new Apple Silicon devices?
• Graillon is +77% faster when native (vs Rosetta 2)
• Couture is +32% faster when native
• Panagement is +94% faster when native
• Renegate is +60% faster when native

The plug-ins will run native if your DAW has been ported to Apple Silicon too. AAX plug-ins are not ported yet.

William Castelli has created "Silicon Info", a tiny menu bar app that will tell you if the app you're currently running is Apple Silicon native or not. You can get it for free via GitHub or on the Mac App Store, and it requires Big Sur.

Thank you, and thanks for the heads up!

My M1 Mac mini is on the way from B&H. I saved some money on the full spec model at the expense of any kind of ETA. Fingers crossed. :lol:
