Black Rooster Audio

https://blackroosteraudio.com/en/faq
Are you guys compatible with M1/Big Sur?
There is no OFFICIAL support for M1 yet, we are working on it, our plug-ins successfully run through Rosetta 2 on Big Sur. You can always make use of our 14-day trial.
Same FAQ answer for over a year, yet their latest plugins all say "Big Sur 11.x not yet supported" with no mention of Monterey, so demo carefully.
