hmm,…vs. the Reason DAW, the developer says you should not mix and match arm64 ready plugins with the intel ones.
So, thats ok how it is, …i´d guess.
And i´m used to run GP under Rosetta.
Fact is: the M1macs are affordable, especially the M1mini, and the capabilities with GP3 is allready stunning !
AND: you can run several GP instances in parallel ! for example the “instrument/initial Sound making” Rack in one instance, and another one for the (complex) FX processing.
I had to do this to run big "patches (Rackspaces) with low buffer sizes ( i stick now allways to 128 samples)
one thing: my TB3 audio interface has noticeable less latency than for example my NI kontakt 6.
I also run my Bass sometimes roundtrip, thru fat patches, and the latenzy is absolutely ok.
The Amp simulations ( PA) do add some latency. So you want to have a super fast AI to keep things still within reason.
The M1 mac is awesome, even under Rosetta !
But its Gigperformer to unleash now all that power we allready have given with all those VST/AU plugins.
It opens up such a huge world !!!
I have several plugins that are arm64 ready.
i will make some tests to see. But it might take a while.
Hope i can bring a FAT patch together to make some hi CPU load tests, Arm based vs. Rosetta.
