McDSP Ships M1 Compatible APB Drivers

The McDSP APB Driver has been updated to support the new line of Apple Silicon powered computers. The new APB Driver takes advantage of the latest advancements in Big Sur (Mac OS 11.x) by running natively on the new M1 processor. Additionally, the latest APB Driver installer will automatically load the correct driver version on Intel and M1 processor based Macs. The APB Driver still supports older Mac OS versions, including High Sierra (Mac OS 10.13.x), Mojave (Mac OS 10.14.x), and Catalina (Mac OS 10.15.x), as well as Intel processor based Macs running Big Sur (Mac OS 11.x).

The M1 compatible APB Driver is a free update to all APB-8 and APB-16 clients, and can be downloaded from the McDSP website today.

The new APB Driver is the latest addition to the growing line of plug-ins and features for the McDSP Analog Processing Box, the world’s first programmable analog processor. The McDSP Analog Processing Box (APB) combines the flexibility of software with the fidelity of premium analog processing. Each channel can be controlled by an AAX, AU, or VST3 plug-in giving true digital workflow with genuine analog performance. Processing options include compressors, mastering limiters, transient enhancement devices, multi-channel and multi-band applications, and much more.
