M-Audio has been actively testing all applicable hardware and software products with each beta release of macOS 11 Big Sur. We understand how important it is for all our users to know exactly what works before they make the jump on any new updates. Please refer to this article for all M-Audio hardware and software compatibility with macOS 11 Big Sur.

For this reason, we encourage all our dedicated M-Audio hardware and software owners to refrain from updating to macOS 11 Big Sur until compatibility with the new operating system can be confirmed. 

This page will be updated regularly to reflect any updates to product compatibility as testing is completed. We encourage all our users to remain on their current OS until all necessary hardware and software products have been qualified for support.



Support for Apple M1 Silicon Processors

Apple has announced the use of a new-style of processor called the M1 that is to be included in their newer computer models. This is a gigantic step for computing power but rewrites a lot of the requirements previously used when developing new software and drivers.

For this reason, all M-Audio software and hardware will require additional testing, separate from Big Sur qualification. Please look for support status in the Hardware Support section for M1 compatibility as testing is completed. 


macOS Big Sur Hardware Support

The products below are class-compliant and do not require any drivers or updates for use with macOS Big Sur.

All testing for macOS Big Sur was done using the standard Intel-based Apple computers. Further testing is still in progress to confirm support for Apple's new Silicon-based processors. These systems should be considered Not Supported until further notice.

*Editor, utility, and/or firmware updater software for this product have not been qualified for support on macOS Big Sur. This page will be updated as necessary to reflect all current compatibility with macOS Big Sur. 

Please be aware: If you do not see your product listed in this article, it is not officially supported for use with macOS Big Sur. Compatibility testing is only necessary for products with USB connectivity and therefore does not affect any M-Audio speakers or headphones.

macOS Big Sur Software Support

Don't forget that most of our products are used in conjunction with software that will also need to be compatible with the macOS Big Sur operating system before you update!
