Default NUGEN Audio [Lack Of] Support?

Hello DUC-ers,

I posted this over on GS, and also wanted to post here in case anyone had some insight.

I’m having difficulty finding some answers, and Nugen can take weeks to reply to my queries, so I wanted to post here. Does anyone know if Nugen products are fully Big Sur/Monterey compatible yet, and if they run native on Apple M1/Silicon?

Also, regarding Nugen’s AAXDSP cost add-on, the Nugen website states “Please note that the DSP version uses AAX Hybrid functionality, which is not yet supported by the HDX Hybrid Engine.” Does that mean that their DSP products are not actually 100% DSP? And won’t run on HDX hybrid even though Nugen is AAX hybrid?

Basically, I’m wondering if Nugen plans to continue supporting their products such as VISLM and Halo, and AAX DSP, or if I should begin to phase them out

I posed the same question regarding AAX DSP to Nugen Support and received the following response:

"Unfortunately we're aware of a compatibility problem with the DSP version of the plug-in with the Hybrid Engine in Pro Tools. Unfortunately it seems that the Hybrid Engine at present has trouble supporting hybrid native/DSP plug-ins (despite the name).

We are currently in discussion with Avid with the aim of resolving the issue. This may involve a compatibility fix included either in a future plug-in update, or the Pro Tools software. Unfortunately however, as it stands without reverting to a prior version of Pro Tools it will only be possible to use the native version of the plug-in for the time being.

We apologise for the inconvenience, however please let me know if you have any further queries."


Their latest installers are working here with M1/Monterey but I do not know if they are M1 Native.

I believe that means their DSP plugs communicate with non DSP components (like their send/link system) and when PT is in hybrid, it interferes. The actual plug is fully DSP though.

Of course they are unless they are shutting down as a company. The issue they mention involves PT hybrid engine. If you work in pure HDX, nothing has changed. DSP still works.

That’s great to hear. Other users have asked this as well elsewhere. Their website isn’t very clear with updates and up-to-current news, so it’s hard to know. For example, I’m not sure if the Upmix bug has been fully fixed yet, that surround channels are completely dropped when upmixing from 5.0 and greater.

Halo is working well in Native on my Mac Studio Ultra. There is another bug which drives me crazy, which is when running multiple Halos the .4 height channels often get mis-assigned when you come back to a session the next day. Check those receive plug-ins! And turn dynamic plug-in processing off. I've seen the .4's go silent with dynamic on.

I also experienced the bug, that let the .4 height channels go quiet.
Nugen support got back on mail. They are aware of that bug and are working on a dot-release.


Best

Native Halo Upmix, ISL, and VisLM are all working fine here.
