Acqua Effect plug-ins Apple Silicon ready

Hosts and operating systems compatibility

All Acustica Audio products support Intel 64 bits architecture. A compatibility chart is maintained and updated by our support service. The following table shows the released Acqua Effect plug-ins that are already compatible with Intel 64 and ARM Silicon architecture, and macOS Big Sur operating system.

The Silicon M1 computers use a different architecture from the previously Intel 64 architecture, which means that the Silicon M1, or coming ARM-based Apple computers, can’t easily run the same applications that they used to be able to, so the application for Silicon M1 computers now has to be written for a new architecture standard.

To ease this transition from Intel 64 architecture to Silicon architecture, Apple created the Rosetta 2 mode. The Rosetta 2 is an application that runs in the background and allows Intel 64 based application to run on your Silicon M1 computer or coming ARM-based Apple computers, without it, your Silicon M1 computer cannot interpret the Intel 64 applications.

After several tests, we have detected that our products do not run correctly in the Rosetta 2 mode and we recommend using always application with a specific build for Silicon computers.

 

Apple Silicon Public Preview


Since the release of the first Apple Silicon computers Acustica has worked tirelessly to provide support for Apple Silicon M1 native systems.
In this process, which began in December 2021, most of the Acustica plugins have been released in public preview to give users the opportunity to download and use pre-release software with native Apple Silicon support.
Although the first set of builds were initially made available late last year there are some known issues that needed to be resolved in order to reach full compatibility.

Compatible with Monterey OS on M1 SoC
NOTE: AI presets are not compatible with Monterey OS on M1 SoC.

Important note:
Because of the different system architectures, migrating or manually copying files of our products from an Apple Intel computer to the new Apple M Silicon computer is not recommended.
The products must be installed through the Aquarius Desktop application on the new system for our products to work correctly.
