macOS Big Sur and Apple silicon compatibility

Post by G » 07 Jul 2020, 15:45

It's that time of year again!

This topic is for compatibility news related to macOS Big Sur (macOS 11.0) as well as the transition from Intel to Apple silicon.

Updates may be made after we post. We will link directly to developer compatibility statements where possible. As always, triple check everything on your system before a major upgrade.

Users and developers, please post and update at will!

Big Sur And Apple Silicon...

macOS 11 "Big Sur" was announced last month, along with ARM-based Mac hardware. We are making every effort to ensure that all currently-available Audio Damage products will be ready for Big Sur and Apple Silicon on day one. Obviously, we are under a strict NDA, and can't really share the details of our experience with you. However, we can say that thus far our testing shows a problem-free transition. We can't speak to external interfaces and such-like, and we are currently somewhat limited in our available tools, but as far as our software running on Apple's hardware goes, you should experience no difficulties.

It must be noted that we do not recommend going out and getting the New Shiny on the day it is released. But we have also been in this business for two decades, so we know that many of you will anyhow. (We will, too. Because we're like you in that regard.)

tl;dr: we're on it, and barring unforeseen difficulties, we should have UB2 installers of all our macOS products on release day.

Unify is up and running on Apple Silicon! Just received my Apple Developer Transition Kit today (ARM based Mac Mini). This is the regular Intel build running under Rosetta; it works very well and loads third-party plug-ins. I have also succeeded in compiling Unify for ARM, and it works very well, but does not load third-party plug-ins compiled for Intel. (Guru Sampler and all the other built-ins work beautifully.)

Our software is not ready for the upcoming MacOS 11 (Big Sur), but we're hard at work. Stick with MacOS 10.15 or lower for now! See our Status Page for more.

Spectrasonics

via email
Greetings from Spectrasonics!

We wanted to let you know about some important upcoming compatibility info. Apple will soon be releasing macOS11, aka “Big Sur” in the coming weeks.

Please be aware that current versions of Spectrasonics instruments DO NOT WORK yet with this new operating system and will require a maintenance update from us to do so.

We strongly recommend waiting to upgrade your macOS until we’ve ensured Big Sur compatibility with our virtual instruments. We are currently working closely with Apple and will have these free updates to share with you soon. Thanks!
