On November 10th, 2020, Apple announced the release of the first Mac computers to contain Apple Silicon, their new generation of processors.
Although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur (Apple’s latest operating system), Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors.
You can find out more about the compatibility of our products with macOS Big Sur here.
At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors.
We are working to ensure support for Apple Silicon across our current products, but time frames for compatibility will vary, and we are not yet able to announce any specific dates.
We will keep you updated with any new developments on this topic, but in the meantime, please check updates to this page to obtain current information on compatibility with Apple Silicon.
We appreciate your patience!
