Rewire1=Audio only
Rewire2=Audio + MIDI and more channels

as the chart shows... mac cubase 5.1 is rewire1 and pc cubase 5.1 is rewire2..
anyone else have any info on this? is cubase 5.2 perhaps rewire 2 capable?
is there any other way to achieve rewire2 compatibility with cubase on mac os 9 is the question..
nuendo 1.5 is rewire2...
logic6 is rewire2..

this means on macos9 you cant send midi from the mixer app (host)(ie: cubase) to the synth app (slave)(ie: reason)
but this is possible using any rewire 2 capable host (such as ableton live, logic 6, nuendo 1.5,arturia storm, )

for more info see the product index here:

Rewire 1 vs Rewire 2 - differences:

Audio:
rewire 1 = 64 channels
rewire 2 = 256 channels

Midi:
rewire 1 = 0 midi channels
rewire 2 = 4080 midi channels (256 midi buses x 16 ch per bus)
