Is Reference 4 compatible with the new Apple silicon M1 chips?
No, we can not guarantee any official support for the M1 machines as of yet. Reference 4 is currently working with Apple M1 computers through Rosetta Translation Environment, however, we haven't done any significant optimization for it.
However, our initial tests on M1 machines suggest an acceptable performance with no major issues.
When to expect any updates regarding M1?
We would like to confirm, that M1 native support won't be featured in Reference 4. We're looking into SoundID Reference M1 native support for more details, please visit this article: SoundID Reference compatibility with Apple M1 devices
