M1 support?

Will Radium make it to Apple's new M1 eventually? :ugeek: Bit geeking out about the great reviews of the new machines.

Depends whether Notam will buy those machines, and if I will have access to it. It's probably not that much work making it work on a different type of CPU, but if apple continues to ignore opengl, it's doubtful if radium will continue to run on macos.

The situation now is that I'm thinking of making it free on macos, use on your own risk. Also because the graphical performance is really really bad on macos. In the long term, radium will use vulcan instead of opengl, but that's a lot of work.

Yeah, they pretty much only focus on their new"ish" metal API, but I guess that means Vulkan can works with metal.

good luck with the implementation :) radium work okay now on macOS catalina, the piano roll and the modular mixer are a bit hick up prone when it comes to mouse interaction, but totally usable.
