What parts of a DAW are written in low level languages?

Post by Piplodocus » Fri Feb 19, 2021 10:15 pm

I was just geekily pondering what parts of a DAW/plugins/etc are written in high level languages and which are more low-level/CPU instruction specific for added performance?

Any programming/DAW/plugin geeks out there who know what kinda parts have to be re-written to make music software run natively on Apple Silicon or Microsoft ARM things so need re-writing rather than just run through a new compiler?
