M1 Silicon support Mac mini

Just ordered Apple’s new Mac Mini with M1 silicon. Does anyone know if a native Audirvana app will be forthcoming? Hoping Rosetta 2 will work until that time.

Audirvana currently works on the Apple silicon Mac mini DTK that was shipped to developers in June under Rosetta 2.

Thanks! That’s good news.

I’m also planning to buy a new Mac Mini solely for Audirvana to replace my 2012 MBP. Does anyone know if I can install the same usb driver I used on my old MBP to connect the Mac Mini to my Pioneer DSD usb DAC or does Pioneer need to create a new driver for the M1?

I have an 8gb ram, 8 core cpu/gpu 512gb M1 MacBook Air. Audirvana is working just fine for me via Rosetta 2.

Hi Derek,

the current Audirvana may work with Rosetta2 but it is not a perfect solution.
Native Apps for the Silicon Macs work much better, faster and smoother than Apps via Rosetta2.
So I think it will be a matter of time that Damien will launch a native Audirvana for Silicon Macs.
I think that SQ will then benefit as well.

Do you also use a USB DAC with your M1 that needs to have a driver installed (eg. to play dsd files)?
