Resolume 7.11 | Apple Silicon Compatible & Delay Effects

Version 7.11.0 is a universal build on macOS. This means that it will run the native ARM architecture on macs with Apple silicon and it will run the native Intel architecture on macs with an Intel processor. All our software already ran great on M1 macs because those machines are very fast and efficient and because Rosetta emulation works just fine. This new universal build does not bring much performance gain on an M1 machine but it's nice to have it running natively without emulation.

FFGL plugins also need be compiled universally to work in a universal app. So when you use 7.11 on an M1 Mac then you need to make sure your FFGL plugins are also universal builds. If it's not possible to update the FFGL plugins then it's still possible to run a universal build in Intel mode on an M1 mac using Rosetta emulation using these instructions. For FFGL developers we have updated the examples and added compile instructions on GitHub.

Delay Effects
Travel back in time! The Buffer and Ring Buffer nodes now accept texture2d so you can create delay effects with Wire. Delays are a lot of fun but do be careful with long delays because they eat VRAM for breakfast.

Comment from Babcom:

Thanks a lot for the Apple Silicon support! I had o lot of issues before with my M1 machine... So hopefully this will make a lot of difference : )

The delay effects seem like a nice add to by the way!

Comment from emilesteginga:

Thanks a lot, this came really in time for me!!
I am so happy with how Resolume came to be to its current version!!!

Comment from zaniz:

Resolume running always @ 85 to 120 frames on the MBP M1MAX with 3 layers of 4k and lots of effects.
I can even run VDMX and Resolume at the same time without noticeable loss of performance, something unthinkable on my old and trust MBP 2017. All of this in in a hot Brazil summer.
Many thanks Resolume Guys, you are amazing!
