How to play Tremor on Mac


Game summary

Central to each of Tremor's 8 synthesis engines is a specialized percussion oscillator with a sub-oscillator and tuned noise source. These are sculpted by modelled drive/filter/FX sections and razor-sharp envelopes to produce diverse kicks, snares, claps and hats alongside zaps, scrapes, textures and sounds that defy classification.

Play Tremor on Mac with Parallels (virtualized)

The easiest way to play Tremor on a Mac is through Parallels, which allows you to virtualize a Windows machine on Macs. The setup is very easy and it works for Apple Silicon Macs as well as for older Intel-based Macs.

Parallels supports the latest version of DirectX and OpenGL, allowing you to play the latest PC games on any Mac. The latest version of DirectX is up to 20% faster.

Our favorite feature of Parallels Desktop is that when you turn off your virtual machine, all the unused disk space gets returned to your main OS, thus minimizing resource waste (which used to be a problem with virtualization).

Tremor installation steps for Mac

Step 1
Go to and download the latest version of the software.
Step 2
Follow the installation process and make sure you allow Parallels in your Mac’s security preferences (it will prompt you to do so).
Step 3
When prompted, download and install Windows 10. The download is around 5.7GB. Make sure you give it all the permissions that it asks for.
Step 4
Once Windows is done installing, you are ready to go. All that’s left to do is install Tremor like you would on any PC.
