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.

As of this date, we are still finalizing support for Dante applications on Intel based macs running macOS Big Sur. Support for Intel-based Macs running Big Sur is anticipated in early 2021.

We do not recommend installing Dante software (Dante Controller, Dante Virtual Soundcard, Dante Via) on any Macs that use the new M1 ARM SoC. We are working to ensure proper compatibility with these new products, expected later in 2021.
