Compatibility of NI Products with Apple Silicon M2 Processors
Currently, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon M2 processors. The following information applies only to the compatibility of NI products with Apple Silicon M1 computers.
Compatibility of NI Products with Apple Silicon M1 Processors
Note: You may encounter issues using KOMPLETE AUDIO Interfaces, KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE on the MacBook M1 Max / Pro / Ultra, due to complications with the new Apple M1 chips. We are working hard to resolve this and guarantee full compatibility as soon as possible.
All of our products can be activated, installed and updated using Native Access, which will run on Apple Silicon M1 computers via Apple’s automatic translation environment Rosetta 2. We are working to ensure full native support for Apple Silicon across all of our current products.
Please note however that we are not yet able to offer technical support for products installed in this way, with the exception of those listed below.
- To use the plug-in versions of the products that are compatible via Rosetta 2 only, it is necessary to start your DAW using Rosetta. Here you can learn how to do this.
- The products that are natively compatible with Apple Silicon do not require Rosetta.

All Komplete 14 products will support M1 / Apple Silicon natively early in the last quarter of 2022, with the exception of REAKTOR 6 and BATTERY 4 which will follow in the beginning of 2023.
