Default Spectrasonics 2.7 – adds VST3 and native support for Apple Silicon M1 Macs

Today we are happy to announce the release of free updates for all our instruments (Omnisphere, Trilian, Keyscape and Stylus RMX) which include full native support for both Apple Silicon based Macs and Steinberg’s latest VST3 plug-in standard.

The new support is significant, since it allows Spectrasonics users with M1-processor based Mac computers to utilize all of the powerful capabilities of the new technology and experience extraordinary performance at low buffer settings. Not only does this native Apple Silicon support allow significantly more instances of Spectrasonics plug-ins, but the major improvement in latency performance allows live performers to have a more reliable and immediate experience onstage - even with inexpensive off-the-shelf Apple laptops!

The new updates also include numerous maintenance improvements, optimizations and fixes. For a full list, please see the update notes for each instrument.

“We’ve long dreamed of the day when our powerful instruments like Omnisphere and Keyscape could easily be used and provide excellent performance with average, off-the-shelf computers. We’re thrilled to say, that day has finally arrived!” stated Spectrasonics Founder Eric Persing. “Support for VST3 is also important for the future, especially since it is used as the basis of MIDI 2.0 development, which we are also working on. The future is bright for Spectrasonics instruments, and these new updates allow us to support the next generation of users!”

Pricing and Availability:
These FREE updates are available now for all registered Spectrasonics users!

How to download the updates:
Current Spectrasonics users: Simply use the “Get Updates” feature on the splash page!
