Cubase Pro 8.5 Mac - Waves V11 Crashes

I’m getting crashes on MacOS High Sierra with Cubase Pro and Waves V11.

Trying to load a Waves plug-in instantly crashes Cubase. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I run Cubase 10.5 mac and try Waves v11 on Mac OS 10.12.6 and it crashes as well and can’t figure out why… This sucks…
