1st running requires Rosetta + not responding in OSX 10.6.6

1st running of C6 requires at the certain moment the Rosetta had to be installed.
So, I have selected to install it.
Well, it seamed that the Rosetta was installed, but after that C6 was hanging for many minutes, so I had to force quit, :frowning:

I am running OSX 10.6.6

:unamused: This is strange because Rosetta enables applications compiled for the PowerPC to run on Mac’s with Intel processors. So why should Cubase 6 want to use Rosetta?

hm…
I am not a specialist at all, I am running OSX 10.6.6 Snow Leopard on my MacPro in 32 bit mode.
The only thing what I can say that the 1st run of C6 required the Rosetta to be installed for the VST2 plugs…as far as I recall.

BTW: I do not really like these kind of situations…force quitting an app is not my best friend, :wink:

Cubase 6 for Mac is 32 bit so that should not be the probem.
Move the VST2 plugins from the directory (you can move them to your desktop if you want)? Than start Cubase 6. So that only Cubase 6 will start. If that works you can put one for one the plugins back so that you can see which one is giving you the problem.

Next to the supplied Steinberg Media Technologies plugs my plugs are:

Omnisphere VST 2.4
Trillian VST 2.4
Stylus RMX VST 2.4
Linplug Alpha VST 2.4
Kontakt 3, VST 2.4
Play VST 2.4
Vienna Ensemble VST 3.0.2
Vienna Ensemble VST 2.4
Vienna Ensemble Pro VST3.0.2
Vienna Ensemble Pro VST 2.4
Vienna Instruments VST 2.4
SIR 2 VST 2.4
and Voxengo tube amp VST 2.4

After the 2nd force quit - see my other topic - until now all runs fine.

Why are you starting a second topic? You can try first to find out if one of your VST’s are causing the problem.

The 64-bit FAQ mentions some plugins still being PPC, so that’s why Rosetta will run with the 32-bit version:

PowerPC plug-ins incl. “Tonic”, “Embracer” and “Monologue” are only available when using Cubase in 32-bit mode.

Hi Renee, sure, you are correct.
But before to be able to try that, I had a hanging C6 when quitting.

BTW: Second topic is removed, :wink:

Perhaps I was not so clear when I wrote:
1st running of C6 requires at the certain moment the Rosetta had to be installed.

What I wanted to say is:
I have launched C6
and it started initializing …and during that initializing stage Rosetta was required.
By other words before the end of this initializing another window popped up, that Rosetta is needed.
In that window I have selected to Install Rosetta (I do not recall if there was another option), and the system started to look for Rosetta itself.
If I am not mistaken the system itself downloaded it from the net, and installed it
After this step C6 was just hanging.

I am not a computer specialist, I am just a user and composer/arranger/mixer…

I have another question:
Is my installation OK?
Do I have to reinstall C6?

As paaltio wrote “The 64-bit FAQ mentions some plugins still being PPC, so that’s why Rosetta will run with the 32-bit version”.
During the installation from Cubase SX3 on my Intel MBP Rosetta was installed. It was installed with no problem.
If you want to find out what needs Rosetta you have to start Cubase 6 first without any plugins. If Cubase 6 runs ok than you add one plugin after each other. It will cost you some time but than you know and can find out if there is a update or something.
From her I can not see it your installation is ok. But if Cubase 6 starts ok if there are no 3rd party plugins, than you don’t have to reinstall it.

Renee,
All seams to be OK, trashing preferences was the magic step.
