    that's because it's not MacIntel compatible, you can only use plugs that are in the Universal Binary format.

    I have rubytube on my powerbook, but I have to make decisions on my core duo mini on what plugs I want to upgrade, in some cases the plugs are dead and there will never be a compatible version.

    The reason that it works with cubase LE, is because it also is not compatible.
    The MacIntel Steinberg products currently are cubase4, cbase studio4. Everything else will be updated later, maybe.

    It is running in Rosseta PPC emulation, and you are taking a considerable performance hit.

    I'm amazed that it works at all, as you add more tracks and effects chances of a crashing will go higher.
