Apple Silicon M1 processor support

Cherry Audio instruments and effects now natively support Apple Silicon M1 processor computers (check for updates to ensure you have the latest version).

Note to Voltage Modular users - there is a separate installer for the M1 version of Voltage Modular, which you can download here: Download Voltage Modular.

    The native M1 installer 2.5.5 from February 2022 does not produce any usable plugins on this Monterey MacBook Air M1. I'm still forced running the high latency, often glitchy Intel installer versions, a few months after contacting support. Anyone had it working? I mean I'm getting like 40% CPU for a simple FM patch under Rosetta, come on!

    Why Can't I find my Voltage in Pro-Tools 20.6.0 on M1 Pro.? Standalone works fine.

    Do I forget anything? Used to work fine on my Mac Intel.

    Why do I have the feeling it is a stupid thing that I didn't do?

    What determines how many Cherry Audio synths or instances of Voltage Modular can be run in Logic? Is it RAM or is it CPU speed or number of cores? My iMac Pro with 64 gigs of RAM using Logic chokes after 3 or 4 Cherry audio synths run at the same time. Please note: I am NOT complaining! I love your synths and just want to run as many as I can, so I'd like to understand the computer's limitations.  If an M1 or M2 Mac would get me significantly more instances of Cherry Audio synths, then I'm happy to use that as an excuse to get one! Thanks.

    Voltage Moduilar is not usable with Rossetta 2 on my MacBook M1 Pro.

    Any updates on this? I'm late to the Cherry party but I'm nearly all in and I'd love them native on my MacBook Air.

    When do we get native apple silicon support ?

  8. Nik Ehlert

    Native on Apple Silicon or via Rosetta ???

    Still Intel, I'm afraid, but runs pretty well regardless.
