List of MacOs Sonoma glitchy NI plugins/libraries
I'm using a recent M1 pro Mac and because of a stupid Apple issue I was forced to update from Monterey to MacOs Sonoma. So far almost everything seems to run fine, even with devs that don't recommend updating to Sonoma, but I have some issues with somes plugins (Plugin Alliance and NI ones mainly).
Among the Native Instruments plugins that have issues, I noticed that it's very difficult to pinpoint clearly a culprit, especially that for exemple some Kontakt libraries are ok but others are not. I was thinking it could interest NI users on this forum to share some plugins, Kontakt libraries or Reaktor devices that make problem on Sonoma (or more widely on ARM Macs).
If it happens some of you don't have the same issues on similar set up (machine, OS, DAW...), it means I've got other problems and sharing these infos could help me or other users refine their setup and find other causes for their issues...
Here are my finding so far :
- Kontakt 6.7.1 seems to be ok in general (I don't have systematic issues with it)
- Inside Kontakt, I've got some issues with Una Corda, generating random CPU spikes
- Reaktor 6.5 seems to be ok in general (I don't have systematic issues with it)
- But inside Reaktor, I've got issues with Rounds, generating CPU spikes even when not doing nothing. It's truly the most annoying issue I've got, because on recent sessions I use Rounds a lot and even on stage. It was not like that before (Monterey), and even not like that on an old mid-2012 laptop I was using (and still use)...
My setup is the following :
Macbook pro M1 pro (2021 model) / 16 inches / 2To drive / 32Gb RAM
Mac Os Sonoma 14.1
Please share your own experience with Sonoma (or ARM Macs). If you can use the same layout (list of issues or positive experiences, then setup with machine/OS/Daw) it will make the reading better for everyone...
