SoundFlow System Requirements

Minimum requirements

  • macOS 10.12 - 10.14*
  • An active internet connection (not required for the SoundFlow Facility edition).
*: macOS 10.15 Catalina will be initially supported in SoundFlow 3.4.0 which will be released in December 2019. If you'd like early access let us know.

Recommended versions

  • macOS: 10.12.6, 10.13.6, 10.14.6 or 10.15.1 (See Catalina notes)
  • Pro Tools (HD): 2019.10 (English language only)*
  • Cubase Pro: 10
  • Nuendo: 10
  • Logic Pro X: 10.3.3
  • Ableton Live Suite 10

* Pro Tools Languages

We currently only support Pro Tools when its language is set to English in Preferences. If you are on German, French or any other language and you would like us to support your localized version, please send us an email. If there are enough customers who want it, we might build support for localized versions too.

DAW Compatibility

If you want to use SoundFlow with Pro Tools, we recommend you to be on the latest version of Pro Tools HD, but we have at least partial backwards compatibility starting from Pro Tools 10.
Our primary testing rig is currently on macOS 10.12.6 with Pro Tools HD 2019.10 (as of November 2019) and macOS 10.14.6.
Cubase features are currently tested on Cubase Pro 10. Ableton Live features are tested on Ableton Live 10 Suite. Nuendo features are tested on Nuendo 10. iZotope RX features are tested on RX 6 and RX 7. Logic Pro X features are tested on 10.3.3 on macOS 10.12.6.
If you have a specific software combination that is not mentioned here, please ask in the forum to see if anyone else has already tested it, or start a free 30-day trial and test for yourself.

Cloud licensing & iLoks

The SoundFlow Cloud product is licensed via your active internet connection. That means this product has nothing to do with iLoks, even if it's still secured by PACE.
Instead of using iLoks, when you open SoundFlow, you log in to your SoundFlow account and it then ensures that you have a valid subscription. Having logged in, SoundFlow remembers your credentials so you won't have to log in again on the same computer if you don't sign out.
This also means that all your user settings, shortcuts, triggers & custom scripts will be instantly available if you sign in to a different computer. No need to walk around with 5 different versions of your settings on different USB sticks anymore.

Number of concurrent connections per account

By default there's a limit of 1 concurrent connection per account. If you need to connect to SoundFlow with more than one machine at a time - for instance if you have 2 rigs or if your home rig is sometimes running even while you're at work - you can purchase an add-on to your subscription to enable more concurrent connections. Please contact us at if you'd like that since this process is not yet fully automated.


SoundFlow currently needs you to be online when you open it. If you need to go offline while working due to MPAA requirements, the recommended approach is to be online while you log in to SoundFlow and the go offline after logged in. This puts SoundFlow in a read-only mode but will continue to work.
If you don't have access to go online at all, please be in direct contact with us.
