Our team is working hard on a version of Audition that will run natively on Apple’s new Apple Silicon based M1 processor. The first public Beta is available today and we invite you to test it out! Your feedback is welcome. We will be updating the Beta frequently as new builds become available. Please see the notes below.
The Beta processes
Since Audition is built on a large codebase with support for a wide range of media and workflows, we will implement native support for Apple M1 in phases and some parts have not been ported yet. This phased approach allows us to validate performance and functionality for specific parts of the application before we add new components. And it also allowsyouto start seeing the benefits now.
The first public Beta includes the core editing functions and workflows like waveform and spectral editing, multitrack recording, editing, and mixing. The average editor is likely to see very little difference from the Intel version, but there are some limitations which are listed below. Please check back on this thread for more updates as we add more functionality.
Running current Intel version in Rosetta 2 emulation mode
While we complete the Apple M1-native versions of Audition, you can install and run the current release version of Audition using Rosetta 2 emulation withApple M1 devices and macOS 11.0(Big Sur).
Please note that third party integrations such as panels, plugins, effects and drivers will need to be updated by the developer to run natively on Apple Silicon and may or may not work in Rosetta 2 emulation mode today.
