Apple's macOS 13 Ventura was launched on October 24, 2022. Our teams have been busy running compatibility tests to make sure that all NI products are working with the new operating system.

To check if your gear and plugins are compatible, check out our dedicated MacOS compatibility support page. We will be regularly updating the list so please check back as we add more to it.

Note: Komplete Kontrol and Maschine 2 are already compatible with Ventura.

    Oh well I have upgraded - since I was setting up a new Mac Studio anyway it was not a big deal to give it a try and so far so good - just some problems with Steinberg plugins but they were pretty buggy on Monterey anyway. Basic necessities like my RME UC and iLok seem to work fine (these were already installed and setup on Monterey before upgrading to Ventura). So far not had any problems with any of my DAWs or Komplete Kontrol and other NI apps (even Absynth 5 is working, in Rosetta mode of course)

    Loving the Stage Manager and snappier Metal 3 graphics really makes good use of all 32 of my GPU cores :)

    No they are all there for me (but I only installed the ones that resize - not the older ones)

    Haven't gone through everything yet but currently have upgraded to Ventura and everything is working as normal.

    monark wont load in Maschine due to incompatibility but it doesn't break anything, just a message on your screen.

    I have the maschine jam, Maschine studio, s49 mk2, audio 6 mk2 and everything is working great on an M1 Max 16 inch.

    I'm yet to test my s8 with Traktor pro 3 so we'll see how that goes.

    to be fair im also using no other software aside from slate digital which works totally fine.

    I don't think I run anything in rosetta mode anymore

    Same here for Ventura, Komplete S49, Maschine, KK14 CE and Ableton are working just as before. Loaded some random projects with different plugins, all ok.

    For the record I have everything still running in Rosetta because of the VST2-VST3 error messages in Komplete Kontrol.

    Hi there,

    i have an macbook pro with m1 PRO.. still using the s49 mk2 and maschine mk3.. sometimes with the machine software itself or FL Studio.

    Has anybody the same setup and could reconfirm that all works fine? Especially the Komplete Ultimate 13 Software..

    Thanks in advance.

    Nach dem update startet Traktor 3 Pro sehr langsam und erkannte plötzlich die externe Festpatte nicht mehr ! Beim gestrigen Gig stoppte sie Musik mittendrin - mehrmals - so das ich auf einen Backup Rechner zugreifen musste!! Hardware s4 MK3 ! Die Software und Hardware hat definitiv Probleme mit dem OS Ventura

    You really should've consulted the compatibility page first before updating your OS. Neither the software, nor the hardware is listed there - meaning: not (officially) supported yet.

    I'm unfortunately having issues with Traktor Pro 3 (latest version) on Ventura. Traktor is very slow, memory usage quickly jumps to over 100gb and the software freezes after a short time. Definitely not usable in a live situation for me.

    Yes, I know, I should have waited, just never faced issues before. Hoping that this will be fixed quickly.

    @marvis As a general rule when it comes to updating MacOSs, the best is to wait a little, even though Apple is pushing you to update. You might want to get in touch with our Traktor support so they can provide a previous version:

    I've updated to Komplete 11 and am hoping that I won't have problems with Battery and Kontakt mainly when I update to Ventura. Anyone have trouble with a bit older NI software?
