System Requirements

McDSP HD and Native plug-ins are compatible with Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Nuendo, FL Studio, Ableton Live, LUNA, Reaper, Sonar, Studio One, and other DAWs that support AAX, AU, and/or VST3 plug-in formats. Note as of v7.0, VST is no longer supported. VST versions of v6 McDSP plug-ins will no longer be updated, and will be uninstalled.

McDSP Native plug-ins support AAX Native, AU, and VST3 plug-in formats.  McDSP HD plug-ins additionally support the AAX DSP plug-in format, as well as AAX Native, AU, and VST3 plug-in formats.  McDSP plug-ins support Mac OS 10.13.x (High Sierra), 10.14.x (Mojave), 10.15.x (Catalina), 11.x (Big Sur), 12.x (Monterey), and Windows 10.  Mac OS version 10.12.x (Sierra) may work, but is not officially supported.  Earlier Mac OS versions are not officially supported.

McDSP plug-ins run natively on Intel and Apple silicon processors.

McDSP plug-ins require an iLok2 or iLok3 USB Smart Key, or an iLok License Manager account and an iLok Cloud session for authorization. Each McDSP v7 plug-in contains two activations per authorization.

McDSP HD plug-ins also support the VENUE S6L systems.  Note McDSP VENUE plug-ins are packaged in a VENUE specific installer available on the McDSP web site.
