macOS12 Monterey/macOS13 Ventura/Silicon M1/M2 chip compatibility



Apple has pivoted away from using Intel-based CPUs with its computers, instead favoring the Apple Silicon processor, also known as the M1/M2 Chip. Later Intel and and all Apple Silicon systems run on macOS 12.0 Monterey and macOS 13.0 Ventura.


As it stands, some Line 6 products are not fully supported on computers using Apple Silicon processors, so we cannot offer technical support for those products installed on M1/M2 systems at this time.


We encourage you to please check with the manufacturers' websites of your music system’s hardware and software for M1/M2 compatibility.


Workaround on M1/M2 Systems

NOTE: Any workarounds offered are not official solutions. Issues experienced with workarounds offered cannot be addressed until official support is offered.


Starting with Big Sur macOS 11, Apple introduced Rosetta v2, which allows applications to run in an emulated mode. Rosetta runs automatically with our software that is NOT a plugin. To use Rosetta with our plugins, locate your DAW in the Applications folder. Use command ⌘+I and check the “Open in Rosetta” box. You may have to rescan your plugins afterwards.
