Madrona Labs updates their instruments with native Apple Silicon support

Madrona Labs

All of Madrona Labs' software instruments, Aalto, Kaivo, and Virta, have been updated to version 1.9.5, bringing native Apple Silicon support for M1 and M2 Macs. The new versions are Universal Binaries, which support both Apple Silicon and Intel processors. Users with Apple Silicon computers should be able to run 30% more voices or more, as compared with the previous versions in Rosetta 2 emulation.

This update is free. Installers contain Universal Binaries for both VST2 and Audio Units V2 versions.

Windows versions are unaffected by this update. Aaltoverb, previously released with Apple Silicon support, is also unaffected.

System requirements for Aalto, Kaivo and Virta are: either Windows 10 or 11 (64-bit) and a VST2 host, or macOS 10.10 or higher with Intel or Apple Silicon processor, and an Audio Units or VST2 host.
