Dante software on macOS Big Sur and Apple M1-based computers

In November 2020, Apple announced both the release of macOS 11 (Big Sur) and new Mac computers that employ Apple Silicon, with the new M1 ARM SoC in lieu of x86 (Intel) processors.

Dante Controller, Dante Virtual Soundcard and Dante Via are now officially supported on Intel based Mac’s running Big Sur.

The latest update to the Dante Controller formally supports the Apple M1 ARM SoC (Rosetta only).

Dante Virtual Soundcard requires more significant work and is not expected until late 2021. Confirmation that Dante Via is also M1 ready requires further validation, however customers may find that Dante Via already works on M1, dependent on the features they are using.
