Using PowerCore with dual processor Macs under OS 9 and MOTU I/O devices

Question

What is causing my dual processor Mac to crash when I load a PowerCore plug-in into Cubase, Logic or Nuendo under Mac OS 9?

Answer

This "freeze" will occur when using PowerCore with a dual processor Mac running MacĀ OS 9 with Steinberg's Cubase or Nuendo and a MOTU ASIO driver.

This freeze will occur as soon as audio playback begins or when a plug-in is launched during playback. Fortunately, there are workarounds: either disable Multiprocessor mode in your host application or use another audio device.

This issue does not occur under Mac OS X.
