VST support in 14.2 on Apple Silicon

I asked this question in the 14.2 announcement thread a week ago but there’s been no response.

 

Has anyone on an M1 Mac had success with VSTs working in 14.2? The preferences are pointing to the correct folders, but they’re not being detected at all. The same plugins do work as Audio Units, which would would be a half-solution — but I need to maintain compatibility with Windows users at my company and my own old sessions, for that matter.

 

14.1 runs well with Rosetta, but I can’t be stuck there indefinitely…

Okay, so to answer my own question: it does not support Intel based plugins. It will run native Apple Silicon plugins only. The workaround is to set the app to run under Rosetta — thereby negating the benefits of the app’s capability of running natively.

 

How was this not communicated to users?! Where was the warning that things would break?

 

I'm sure there are plenty of other professionals who rely on plugins that haven’t been (or never will be) updated who lack the technical savvy to figure this stuff out for themselves. Suddenly their setup is inexplicably broken.

 

Technical limitations are understandable, but please just tell us!

This is infuriating. Thank you for following up on this. I couldn't figure out why scanning for plugins showed ALL my plugins, but they were not accessible. Back to v13, for now.
