I use the 2i2. No clue what the M1 is. The 2i2 is pretty great for the price.

Latest Apple Macs have choice of native Apple or Intel CPU. The Apple CPU is the M1. The basic question would seem to be whether or not the 2i2 is supported. (I'm waiting for the presumed upcoming release of Apple laptops before I upgrade my macbook.)

For the present and the immediate future, apps written for X86_64 code will run on M1 Macs in Rosetta 2. If Apple adheres to its past practice on CPU architecture transition (68xxx > PowerPC > Intel), Rosetta 2 will be supported in Monterey and the following two OS versions.

Can't speak to 2i2 specifically, but my church's A/V BOH migrated to M1s back in June and our production software has been running in Rosetta 2 without a blip and no discernable drop in performance. YMMV.

I use a MacBook and a 2i2. I just use Garage Band. It works great.
