Traktor M1 Max (ARM) issues since Traktor 3.9.0 - Potential fix?

Ever since Traktor 3.9.0 release the binary unifies x86_64 and arm64 binaries. I have been experiencing massive Lags and unresponsiveness when launching the newer arm binaries. I extracted them with lipo to verify, and found the x86_64 with Rosetta to be much more responsive.

I'm unsure if anyone else is experiencing this, but if they are, here are the steps to strip the Traktor binary of the arm64 compilation target (assuming you xcodetools):

  1. Open a Terminal.
  2. cd /Applications/Native\ Instruments/Traktor\ Pro\ 3/Traktor.app/Contents/MacOS
  3. cp Traktor Traktor.bak
  4. sudo lipo -thin x86_64 Traktor.bak -output Traktor

I hope this is useful to someone. I am sure Native Instruments is already aware of the issues on arm Macs.
