  • Help->'Show version info' displays the mode in which the plugin is running (ARM/Intel).


  • Much faster loading times on M1 Macs.
  • The native M1 support results in 20% lower CPU use compared to Rosetta2 Mode.
  • More responsive GUI on M1 Macs.
  • More precise graphics for the knobs.
  • Several small enhancements.


  • AudioUnit is now an AUv2 plugin.
