Maschine 2.16 Silicon native no AU?

Can anyone confirm if or if the native version has no AU Plug Ins support? I ask, because all I saw in description and videos was talking about VST and VST3 but Maschine has also AU plug ins in the past. I want to verify before I update.

Next question if there is AU, does the native version load AU rosetta/native plug ins (like Ableton / logic) ?


thanx for clearing

    It does support native AU - I’ll have to check if it supports AU bridging, it’s possible it could since that is handled by the MacOs AUHostingCompatibilityService not the host per se

    thanx. that's good news ! I ask myself why everybody only talks about VST3 if AU is much more cross compatible between Intel Rosetta and native. cool !

    So I checked, and bridging with AUHostingCompatibilityService is at least partially supported. But not all plugins show up, most notably all of NI's AUs are missing.

    Some plugins work (PSP MixPack, IKM Comprexxor), some don't (Output Portal, AD Replicant 2). It's going to be trial and error, I guess.

    Partly I think because Komplete Kontrol doesn’t support AU and while plug-in fx are useful in Maschine it is not well suited for plugin instruments in my experience so keyboard users tend more to use KK

    Also VST3 is now the only cross platform plugin format in widespread use

    Trying it myself now and they all show - you just need to tick the box in Prefs/Plugins to enable NI Audio Units (it's off by default)

    Of course this is a wrapper so in practice possibly performance for Massive X is no better than using Rosetta - however it does mean it can be used alongside native plugins and Maschine itself is native. Just a pity I can't do this in Komplete Kontrol though as Massive X is useless to me in Maschine as it doesn't support aftertouch

    thanx for testing and Clearing. that helps.

    IMO at the Moment AU plug ins are the best choice to stay compatible (on Mac)

    Oh you’re right, sorry for that. What a weird setting to have 😅
