CompatibilityThe plugin requires not only a 64bit OS but also a 64bit DAW. This is an important distinction to make as a 32bit DAW can run on a 64bit OS, but will not be able to load the plugin.
ARM CPUs are currently not supported, meaning it will not work on Windows ARM machines (eg Microsoft Surface Pro X), and will run with Rosetta 2 translation on Mac M1 machines (which implies that the DAW itself runs with Rosetta 2).
MacOS minimum supported version is 10.7
Provided formats are VST3 for Windows and VST3/AU for MacOS.
Due to Steinberg's current licencing policy we unfortunately cannot offer VST2 versions.
The plugin is compatible with HiDPI/Retina displays if the DAW supports it.
MacOS CatalinaCatalina support starts with version 1.0.1.
It is required to be online for the first run of each new version of the plugin to let Apple's Gatekeeper system validate its origin.
Users updating from version 1.0.0 will need to log out before installing the 1.0.1 version.

InstallationWe chose not to use an installer, and let the user copy the plugin files in the appropriate directories himself.
This approach is both simpler and safer, guarantying no additional software is being installed, and letting the user know in which directories the files are located.

StatusThe SP950 app is a free access web application that runs in modern browsers (see compatibility section below). It is currently in very early alpha stage, lacking a lot of functionalities. A Windows/Mac standalone desktop version is also developed in parallel, with similar functionalities, and will be available for purchase once the functionalities reach a certain usability point.
CompatibilityThe app uses advanced browser audio APIs, and requires a recent version of a Chrome, Edge/Chromium or Firefox browser, on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Android devices are also supported, but latency can be all over the place depending on the device.
Safari browser is currently not supported, as is iOS regardless of the browser used (Safari web engine).
