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 and Dante Virtual Soundcard will formally support Intel-based Macs running Big Sur in an April 2021 release. Dante Via already supports Intel-based Macs running Big Sur.

Dante Controller will formally support the Apple M1 ARM SoC in a Late April / Early May 2021 release (Rosetta only). Dante Virtual Soundcard requires more significant work and is not expected until mid-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.
