1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    Hi,

    I have some old cubase projects that use old versions of Absynth and Battery (Absynth 4 and Battery 3). I have licenses for those products and I have legal disk images, but these plugins do not run on current versions of Mac OS -- I have to go back to 10.10 to get them to work.

    Has anyone had any luck running a VM, such as VMware Fusion, on your Mac, and inside the VM running an old enough version of Mac OS that you can then run the plugins? The part of it that I'm wondering about is the audio. Most VM users are not super interested in audio. For that reason, companies like VMware might not bother supporting connecting the VM to the host machine's audio card.

    Has anyone successfully done this?
