Rewire question: running plugins on the slave?

As things stand, Rewire only allows the Master to run VST's / plugins, while the Slave has VSTs disabled. Anybody know of a hack or workaround to change this, so I can get plugins happening on my Slave as well Master.

I'm on a 2011 MBP, OSX, running Cubase as Master, Ableton as Slave.

the problem is with live, not the rewire spec. ableton just doesn't allow you to host vst's when it is running in rewire. other rewire capable apps such as bidule and reaper can do this.

my suggestion is to switch your slave rewire device to bidule or reaper.

also if you are using cubase, why do you want to host vst's in ableton?

I like the ableton workflow. I have ableton songs with some tracks already processed by vst's. But when I want to slave ableton and run the whole thing from cubase I lost the fx.
