macOS 11 / Apple Silicon

Post by chi_mike »

I think I saw the first WWDC in a few years that I didn't quite like. The entire change over to apple arm does concern me about a few things, and I wonder if anybody around here might know more ??

1. With this change over to Apple Silicon, will thunderbolt be deprecated in apple devices for only usb 4 ?
2. How much does this change Cubase / Nuendo , plugins, etc ? is this major re-writes ?
3. can the current state of arm style processors blow past current Xeons ? For track count, plugins, etc..

Microsoft also support ARM from 2018 in some devices
I expect that in the future ARM will be the strongest and best
In terms of processor temperature, thickness, power, and energy consumption
There are ARM processors now with a power of 160 cores dual socket https://amperecomputing.com/altra/?gcli ... fhEALw_wcB

I expect programmers around the world will support this CPU

I have virtually zero fear that Microsoft will do anything to risk Windows installations in the near future. Trying to be 'future proof' using Apple is just... "optimistic".

This is a monumental change. Has Steinberg issued a statement?

Hopefully even if most their code is in C++ , its still just compiling the source files in Xcode for the new universal binary 2.

Im working on that for a couple self built apps, so nothing major like Nuendo.

Whats kinda cool is now iOS and iPad apps will run on macOS , so that opens up new ideas in remote control apps.


Imagine a remote app that you can be on a plane, take a track from the project at home, mix or edit that track on the iPad and send that edited track back to the project at home.

Thats what I want CubaseIC Pro to be !! Like GIT / SourceTree for audio almost.
