Reaktor on M1?

Hi, I can't launch Reaktor on M1 Monterey. No problem with Kontakt but Reaktor doesn't show in Ableton. I can run Reaktor but only as a standalone. Someone can help me?

    Kontakt is native Apple Silicon, Reaktor is not. Do you run Reaktor using Rosetta?

    As I can see in my activity monitor Reaktor runs on rosetta but only as standalone. Still can't find Reaktor in Ableton window (only Massive and Kontakt from Native Instruments)...

    I am not on Mac and Ableton, so do not know....

    Maybe, check the list of folders scanned by Ableton. Reaktor may be in another folder than the rest. Also what type of plugins Ableton searches? For example Kontakt is VST3 and VST2, while Reaktor only VST2, I think.

    I don't have a M1 but to my knowledge you have to use the Audio Unit version of Reaktor if you wanna have it run trough Rosetta

    Hi @adamskyyy Reaktor 6 is not fully supported on Mac OS Monterey yet so unfortunately it won't work as intended. 😕
