    (Updated July 2022)
    We have received a lot of questions about native M1/M2 support for our TC Electronic audio plug-ins on Mac.

    We are a 100% committed to creating native M1 versions of our plug-ins. As there is more to programming these than just a recompile of the software, (due to the code base, libraries, and the sheer number of work hours needed), this is, unfortunately, not a short-term project. We will update you on a release date as soon we are able.

    Here is a comprehensive overview of the current compatibility of our plug-ins on M1 and M2 Macs.

    The Rosetta Workaround
    If you are using Cubase, Nuendo, or Wavelab, you can enable these apps to run in Rosetta mode to continue using our plug-ins. This is obviously not ideal, but at least it will allow you to access older projects or quickly freeze tracks before you jump back to running natively.

    Business as Usual
    Fortunately, Pro Tools and Reason run in Rosetta automatically, as there is no native version of these available. You will be able to use our plug-ins as usual.

    Keep Turning it to 11
    The good news is, most Mac apps support Audio Units (AU) plug-ins for which your M1/M2 Mac has Apple’s “AUHostingCompatibilityService“ built in. It’s clear sailing with:

    • Logic
    • Ableton Live
    • Reaper
    • Studio One
    • Digital Performer
    • Adobe Audition
    • Final Cut
    • DaVinci Resolve
    • Adobe Premiere

    Accordingly, if you are using any of the apps above, make sure you have the AU version of our plug-ins installed and you will be good to go.

    Simply launch the native version of your app alongside other native 3rd party plug-ins. Thanks to the AU implementation, our TC Electronic plug-ins will launch in Rosetta mode, while the app and other plug-ins run natively.

    Help us Help You
    Again, we will have native versions of all your favorite TC Electronic plug-ins available in the future.

     In the meantime, share with us how Rosetta and the AU compatibility service is working for your setup. Please let us know what is working and what isn’t. With your feedback we will be best positioned to support our plug-ins natively on M1 and M2 going forward.

     

    Thank you!

      RickRossBell My question is about getting a replacement knob. I'm not alone. Are y'all going to make any effort to help us? Or just send us to Service Partners who can't help us and then ignore us?

      PierreC Hi there. I was once a happy user of LM2n, but since I switched to a M1pro macbook running Monterey, it has a serious graphical issue. it's working with Rosetta, but the metering "circle" is very small, almost unusable (see the pic attached).
      Please fix that before releasing a native update, so at least I can use it with Rosetta.

      nlsrecordingstudio It's an absolute disgrace that a company like TC is more than 2 years overdue for releasing compatible software. Yes I know it's complex and you need coders but it has taken you 2 years to even make this statement... Releasing new products with no support for a 2 year old OS. Even Steinberg is native which is a lot more complex than a plugin like the TC icon line.... No repose on support questions it's all very bad. We make living mixing with your products and you make a living creating products that we buy. So stop releasing new stuff and start supporting all the great suff you have already.

      • TC Electronic Apple M1 & M2 Plug-In Support
        SebP I couldn't agree more. I just hope that compatible software won't be available at a time when Apple releases its Macbook M5 generation or so and my M1 pro which I bought last year slowly becomes obsolete. My bank of plugins is made of 20 different editors. All of them have now brought Apple silicon native support for Cubase. Just saying...

    ...and preserved his brother’s legacy

    It takes a diverse collection of skills to innovate and create the tools for which TC Electronic is famed. So, it’s only a matter of time before you come across a team member whose talents go far beyond the workplace. And nowhere is that more apparent than in TC Electronic’s Christian G. Frandsen.

    Christian has been our Product Development Engineer and Specialist for 25 years and helps develop our professional studio equipment. But being an engineer, for Christian, doesn’t stop at TC Electronic. You could even say that it runs in the family.

    The Start of a Life-Long Adventure
    Back in 1981, a 10-year-old Christian would listen to cassette tapes of a band called TV-2, a Danish pop rock group that was only just starting at that time. His older brother Anders was a Front-of-House engineer for the band and recorded an early performance of theirs in Holbaek all those years ago. This had a huge impact on Christian as it was not just the music of what would become one of the biggest bands in Denmark that resonated with him, but his brother was also part of something big. Something Christian felt was very special. This engendered a passion for sound and music that would shape Christian’s life and lead to a career in TC Electronic which persists to this day.

    Tragedy and a Renewed Purpose
    Sadly, Anders would pass away suddenly in 2008 leaving behind fond memories and some tapes of early TV-2 recordings, among others which Christian would inherit. Though rough and mixed for live sound, he had in his hands the purest sources of inspiration that set him down the path to where he is now. It deserved a lot more than to just sit in a shelf gathering dust.

    In 2016, as he was remastering his own band’s recordings, Christian decided to dust off those old TV-2 tapes from Anders and remix the recordings now with the power of modern technology that just wasn’t available back in the 80s. With a few test optimizations in hand, Christian got in touch with TV-2 who then agreed to try to remaster the concert.

    With the band’s blessing, the desire to honor his brother’s legacy and to share the recordings with other eager fans, Christian started on an adventure that would last up to five and a half years.

    Renewing a Legacy with Modern Technology
    Restoring the recordings wouldn’t be an easy task though. The mixes were recorded directly from the Front-of-House console and were mixed for live audiences not for listening at home. Distortion from the aging cassette tape plus those from the original equipment themselves had to be cleaned up along with several other anomalies that presented themselves.

    Some of the original vocals were cut out of the original recordings as they were too distorted and unintelligible. This was done with the help of a company based in Los Angeles that specialized in extracting vocals from recordings. New vocals were recorded and gently mixed in, matching the same energy and feel of the original.

    During the remastering process, Christian used several different effects, compressors and metering solutions from TC Electronic

    • The 12-band Midas powered EQ PEQ 3000 was used for all EQ tasks in mix and mastering and fixing the identified issues with the original cassette tape like rather severe stereo, left/right and mid/side spectral imbalances
    • The very flexible MD4 HD multiband compressor was used for mastering, overall dynamics control while the five bands give high spectral resolution and transparency to the delicate compression
    • The high-end true stereo reverb VSS4 HD adds club-like early reflections and stereo width help that are lacking in the original PA console output mix, which was recorded with close mic-ing and reverb tail effects only
    • The BRICKWALL HD master true-peak limiter gives an exceptional view and control of peaks and track loudness to align the project with modern streaming standards
    • The Midas powered DYN 3000 channel compressor was used in the mastering process adding just a tiny punch and was also used on the new vocal recordings where the dynamics and texture were profiled and reproduced
    • The classic delay TC2290 was used for effects on the dubbed sources like parts of the lead vocal. In the original mix there are multiple delay elements and these were profiled and reproduced.
    • The vintage reverb DVR250 was used for important 80s reverb sound on the dubbed sources like parts of the lead vocal in order for them to mix perfectly with the original concert.
    • Throughout the project the Clarity M meter was a great companion for stand-alone (off screen) metering. It adds continuous views on spectral content, center-location, loudness and phase and by using USB/plugin connection to the unit either master out, busses or channels can easily be monitored.
    Further, TC Electronic System 6000, Clarity X, Studio Konnekt 48 was used as well
    Some of the other amazing tools that were used in this project were from: Steinberg, Audionamix, iZotope, Voxengo, Waves, Klevgrand, SSL, RTW, Dynaudio and DPA Microphones.
     
    The remastered 1981 Holbaek recordings were released in January 2022, 40 years after they were initially committed to tape, and have been made available in many different streaming platforms, cassette tape and vinyl, which received great reviews and even reached no. 1 on the Danish vinyl chart; with TV-2’s early formative performances, and Anders and Christian’s hard work available for everyone to hear.

    “A circle is drawn,” says Christian “and it’s both a huge pleasure and a great challenge to help this concert on its way. I am very grateful that TV-2 has been so obliging and patient in the long process.”

    We use a studiokonnekt 48, purchased new a very few years ago. It has been our audio interface workhorse for years under several iterations of MacOS. TC has apparently released the 64-bit version of Windows drivers/apps for controlling this and other TC interfaces. It is not apparent that TC Electronic (today part of the Behringer concern) has commited to letting us use our perfectly healthy audio interfaces under 64-bit system software such as Mojave.

    We are asking TC Electronic - presumably its own division in the Behringer sphere - to commit to developing and releasing 64-bit-compliant software for the studiokonnekt 48 and the handful of other excellent TC audio interfaces from that generation, so that we who pay your bills and make doing business a pleasure can remain happy users of TC's great gear.

     

    Let's go TC, show us - your user-base - some honest and simple generosity!

      NicJonesMT Hi Michael. The TC Near interfaces (Konnekt and Impact) are long discontinued. This means that there will be no future updates to the software that the products use.

      Some users have had some success using these products with more recent operating systems however we do not officially support this.

    Dear reader,

    Can anyone tell me if the TC Electronic Icon (DT) plugins are Big Sur compatible now?

    (I'm using the PEQ- & DYN3000, TC 8210, DVR250 and the MASTER X HD & BRICKWALL HD on a daily basis but I'd love to upgrade to Bug Sur so I can also start using Logic 10.7!)

    The product page says: "Operating systems: Mac OS X 10.13 Sierra or above" so I assume it includes Big Sur, right?

    Thanks in advance!

      PedroRodrigues Hi Sonopoly please consider that the TC Electronic Icon unit are in fact compatible with Big Sur but if your are using a M1 process with Big Sur you must confirm that you are using the ROSETTA 2 to allow any software designed to operate on the Intel processors operates on the new M1 process. Thank you

    Ok, firstly having to register on the forum of an incredibly slow website is just not acceptable a way to get support, especially when the super long questionnaires to get registered and then start a ticket don't even list the product in question.

    I purchased VSS4 2 days ago. No license is forthcoming. ilok ID is same as my username above, and I can submit proof of Paypal payment to music tribe, I already emailed it to [email protected] 

    Can we PLEASE get a license sent out??? Thank you.

    Dear All,

    Wonder if anyone can help.

    TC Near (3.61) is not recognising my Studio Konnekt 48 on Mojave (10.14.6), running on a Mac Mini i7 3.2Ghz

    i'm connecting the SK48 into the Mac Mini Thunderboilt 3 port, using an Apple FW to TB2 adapter and an Apple TB2 to TB3 adapter.

    The Mac OS is recognising the SK48 as connected to the TB3 port, however the TC Near Control Panel is showing:

    "No device found ... looking for devices..."

    i downloaded what i believe is the latest driver from here:

    https://www.tcelectronic.com/tcelectronic/product?modelCode=P0DMV

    TCAudioInterfaceSoftware 3.6.1f34

    There don't appear to be any issues with the SK48 itself, still working on Mavericks via FW/TB2 

    Any ideas on how i can resolve this would be greatly apreciated

    TIA

    Best regards,

    V

      PedroRodrigues Hi Valas please consider that the unit is a legacy unit and we have stopped releasing any updated form this unit for some time now, therefor will only work on legacy, the unit must be connected directly to a USB 2.0 port and the use of any adaptors will create issues when interfacing with the drivers. Thank you
