Hello together,

is there a timeline when the drivers for the new Apple Macs with the new M1 chip (Silicon) and Big Sur will be released? Is the current driver working using Rosetta 2.0 on M1?

Hello Everyone,

All the software for the new M1 Silicon Macs is currently being tested and as of this moment it is NOT compatible. The Steinberg side has the best information on this and we all use that driver. That is the best information I have. The mid March is an estimate, not a guarantee by the way. They are usually pretty good about releasing updates so it most likely will be a solid estimate. If I get any additional information I share it here.

yeah, you're right. When Apple says we change it, then everyone must follow. If they don't, bad luck.

I'm also using Yamaha Synths since 1990 and I love them. So, I didn't want to criticise them, but am wondering about current situation which is happening by nearly every manufacturer. It's not a problem as I have an older MacBook Pro, so I will wait.

Arrogance. Apple seems to expect everyone will kowtow the minute they show some flashy videos and flash some ridonculous specs, abandoning all concerns for backwards compatible gear that they (users) depend on, and some do. If there's another amazing company with the breadth in creativity and market span of Apple, it could be Yamaha. So our beloved Yamaha (not being sarcastic, I'm Montage, DX7, Motif, S70xs, D1500'd up the Yamazoo!) can be a bit set in its own ways as well. No answers here, just understanding. And whoever said it will take a little time, I agree!

I'm wondering why manufacturers didn't work on providing drivers / versions for the Apple M1 Chip before Apple released the M1 Chip. Apple provided a developer version of the Mac Mini M1 some time before they released.

I hope that drivers for M1 Chip will be released soon.

This isn't like a OS update this is a new CPU architecture so a whole new driver has to be written so it could take awhile. This is just life when you use bleeding edge technology.

Not sure if this helps or not but I own a Mac Mini M1 and I am NOT able to use the USB driver to receive MIDI signals from my S90. :(
