macOS Sonoma audio apps & plugins compatibility

Tuesday September 19, 2023. 05:57 AM , from MacOSX Audio
It’s that time of year again! This post is for compatibility news related to macOS Sonoma (macOS 14), which was released today. This year, we’re switching things up and moving this here to the news page. If you have your own updates, please comment below.
We will continually update this post, linking directly to developer compatibility statements where possible. Where macOS Sonoma compatibility is unknown, we’ll simply provide a link to the most likely source of updates and try to circle back later.
As always, triple check everything on your system before a major upgrade. Tip: Listings are alphabetical, but you can also use your browser’s search function to get where you need to go.

As with all significant operating system releases, we strongly recommend you do not upgrade to macOS Sonoma just yet. We are currently working hard to ensure compatibility for all Arturia software titles – this includes individual instruments, effects, and utilities – but until the final release is available we cannot be certain it is stable.

macOS Sonoma is the latest major release of macOS, Apple’s operating system for Macintosh computers, and is the successor to macOS Ventura. At this time, Avid has not yet qualified macOS Sonoma (14.x) to run with existing Avid Creative Tools products (Media Composer, Pro Tools, and Sibelius). Our teams are constantly working on qualifying Avid products for macOS updates and the new Apple silicon Macs.

Bitwig direct message)

We have been testing Sonoma and so far did not find any issues. That being said, I would always recommend to wait a bit and ensure that your 3rd party hard- and software is fully compatible, too.
