CDP and M1
« on: March 18, 2022, 12:30:15 PM »
Dear CDP users,

We are getting an increasing number of queries about the new Apple M1 machines (ARM architecture).  At the moment we cannot compile for the M1 and request help from the CDP Community.  In the first place, we do not have an M1 machine nor the resources to purchase one (free software has its drawbacks).  Secondly, the SoundLoom GUI is written in TCL/TK using v8.5 and there appear to be various support problems for M1 that concern SoundLoom.

Ways to help:

 - Please let us know if you have successfully compiled the CDP code for the M1 and are able to use CDP with this processor and its related OS.  If so, would you be willing to share the expertise that has enabled you to do this.

 - Forward any information about TCL/TK and M1 support

 - Would someone be willing to try to compile CDP for M1 and correspond with Richard Dobson about how it goes (

 - A final option would be to donate a spare M1 computer to CDP

We have been doing our best to keep up with the many OS changes that Apple have been making, but the M1 is so far a step too far for us.

Please respond to the Forum and/or directly to the CDP email address:

Thanks very much,
