After updating to 6.0.2 the VST bridge stopped working all together on Cubase OSX.
After Yamaha angrily made it clear that they “DO NOT SUPPORT” the VST bridge (thanks for that Yamaha) we tried everything possible, incl reinstall.
Only after replacing the “VSTPlugManager” from the version 6.0.0 installer the problem was solved and the VSTbridge launched again as expected. We have tried that on 3 different machines with osx 10.6.7. Not sure what other issues are caused by that, but the Monster plugin latency issue introduced in 6.0.2 has dissapeared. We can reproduce that on all machines
same thing just happened to me as well, after complete system reinstall- tried to install the cub6_VSTPluginManager from version 6.0. over it but got an error saying I already got a newer version. how did you do that?
I manually copied Cubase 6> Components> VSTPlugManager.bundle> Contents> MacOS> VSTPlugManager from the original C6 application to the 6.0.2 updated app. You could also extract it from the 6.0.0 installer archive.
That solved ALL issues Yamaha wasn’t able to help with.
NYC: You do a “Show Package Content” on the Cubase 6 app and then again on the VSTPlugManager.bundle to get to “VSTPlugManager”. Once there you replace “VSTPlugManager” with the 6.0.0 or 6.0.1 version.
Hope that answers your question. If not let me know.
I had the same problem after a format\reinstall osx\restore. Not only could I not load Embracer, Monologue and Tonic in Cubase 6, but in Cubase 4 as well. My solution ,similar to the one below, is as follows :
Double click the 6.0.1 update installer icon.
Right click on the “Cubase 6.0.1 Update.mpkg” icon.
Select “Show Package Contents”.
4.Double click the resulting “Contents” folder.
Double click the “Packages” folder.
Double click the “cub6_VSTPluginManager.pkg” icon to run the installer.
