FabFilter has announced the introduction of Apple Silicon compatibility across its entire catalogue. Every effect and instrument in the range now loads natively in macOS Big Sur running on Apple Silicon (or as a Universal Binary on Intel Macs), in VST2, VST3 and AU formats. And drawing on their extensive experience of porting to iPad, the company optimized CPU usage across their product line specifically for M1.
These updates also fix a number of bugs, as well as adding support for Dolby Atmos 7.0.2 and 7.1.2 in the VST3 version of Pro-L 2 and Pro-Q 3, and optimizing various distortion styles in Saturn 2. See this news item for a complete list of changes.
The updated plug-ins are fully compatible with previous versions. The latest versions and 30-day trials are available for download now at www.fabfilter.com/download
In addition, FabFilter just started their annual Holiday Sale. Until January 1, there's a 25% discount on all plug-in bundles. See www.fabfilter.com/shop for more info.
