What difference does the Apple M1 chip make to djay pro AI?

I’m a newcomer here, experienced DJ with a Denon Prime setup and have recently installed the trial of djay pro AI. I’m drawn here because of the Neural Mixing capability.

I see in the documentation online that having the M1 chip in a Mac is advantageous for the AI stuff due to the Neural Processor.

However what actual difference does it make to the software in practice?

In my experience of an iPad Air 2020 with an A15 chip, a iPad Air 2022 with an M1 chip, and MacBook Pro with an M1 chip… it doesn’t make a noticeable difference. The main thing is that your device had a neural processor to make the cleanest sounding stems. All of the above do.

I noticed a difference going from an iPhone X to an iPhone 12 Pro in the sound quality when separating the stems.

Performance is always going to be a little slicker too, but again, that’s barely noticeable in my experience.

All the actual features remain the same across compatible iOS devices. The MacBook is more feature reach.
