Hello! We are waiting for the M1 Silicon version! Cheers!

I can’t get it to load in my Rosetta-translated DAW. Help?

Unfortunately is being blacklisted by cubase (Intel version) on M1. Before this update it was always blacklisted


Well, I would like to have this because nowadays I work mainly on a laptop due different circumstances. And I do extensively sound design and while doing so I like to have a spectrum analyzer and a scope on my screen with less information/data/controls shown as possible. First for less eye distraction and second to save valuable screen space. Thanks

Hi, i really like this tool. Nothing comparable for free out there. But I have one feature request: a button to hide the controls so that only the waveform display is visible. Hope that’s somehow possible. Thanks and stay healthy.
