there’s some talk about how going forward the drivers will be different due to apple MacOS requirements.
this thread at gearspace has some info… a bit of “the sky is falling” coupled with “calm down” but there’s some good info about driver issues in Big Sur.
basically, some people are saying the low latency audio drivers require access to the core (kernel level) and the new “user space” is not part of that and is a low priority location for stuff to happen… and audio is a high priority process.
it’s somewhat over my head so i take it all w/a grain of salt since all this is transitional due to new OS and all kinds of new shit to go along with it for developers…
there’s a work around that allows drivers to be located at the kernel level but apparently apple is going to close that loophole soon and has let developers know
