Anyone else see how Antares is increasing their perpetual license prices by 20% to try and force everyone to move to a subscription? That is some of the most blatant greedy horsesh*t I’ve ever seen from a company like that. They’re not even trying to hide what they’re doing at this point.

Also looks like that means Auto-Tune Pro 9 isn’t gonna get Apple Silicon support and the upcoming Auto-Tune Pro X will, which is another bullsh*t money-grabbing move to try and get people to upgrade their licenses.

I absolutely resent this subscription-model that every company and their mother is moving to now. We’re going to have to start paying a subscription just to wear a pair of shoes soon.

Wait until the economy goes into recession and all of those music subs dry out as people cut back on expenses. I don't necessarily want the economy to tank, but there will be a little glee if some of these companies are forced to back-track on their sub models. I don't want anyone to go under entirely because that means laid off employees and potentially lost technology (or even further consolidation), but some of these companies really deserve a kick in the balls with their lackluster subscriptions.

Indeed they do. I don’t even understand that business model at all, either. I understand giving people a subscription to cut down on upfront costs, but they should make it a rent-to-own kind of subscription instead, while still giving people the choice of buying a perpetual license up front. Never ending monthly payments for plug-ins or just certain software types in general doesn’t seem like a sustainable business model to me. People will end up avoiding companies with subscription-only models like that altogether and look somewhere else and boom; there goes a potential customer and lost money.

Steinberg's Backbone 1.5 is now native. The changelog in the updater app says so and after installing and dragging the .component file into 'Silicon' is indeed says that it is. Still can't manage that POS to run, though. No matter what I do, it just won't validate.

Auddict's PercX is 1.4.0 is M1 compatible.

It's not listed on the Auddict site as such, but the plugin GUI had a notification when I opened it today letting me know the new version was available and AS ready.

So happy to run UAD Version of it which is native and also the latest version available at the moment.

I don’t know which installer you use but I own the bundle from Bleass and I use Studio One in Native Mode. All Plugins that I installed and use are Apple Silicon Native. But since it’s a free plugin, we’ll possible that monolit isn’t Apple silicon native.

Can check that later after work

Monolit is definitely not native.

FFS, Steinberg! Can't you even be bothered to get your System Specs correct? This is pathetic! It's actually false advertising.

Thanks for the research, Atlatnesiti. Deactivated that entry for now.
Yeah since I posted that it was advertised as Native and Rosetta 2, they removed the term Native.... total BS, but Steinberg SOP.

I can confirm, that Backbone 1.5 is in fact also available as a native plugin and it is working just fine in my Cubase 12 running in native mode. Steinberg has also updated their website regarding the system requirements, which were wrong on launchday.

New Lindell Audio SBC from Plugin Alliance is M1 Native.

I was hoping the rest of the Lindell Plugs would get the M1 Native treatment, but nope!
