Mac audio question...

So I downloaded what is supposedly a superbadass 8-bit synth: Chip32

But Live ain't havin' it.

I'm pretty sure I installed it in the right place:

Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

I also (for good measure) installed it in this other right place:

Macintosh HD/Users/username/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

So with everything in its right place, one would think this Audio Unit plug-in would be recognized by Ableton Live and show up in the menu:

But, no such luck. What should I do?

It's likely that your OSX version no longer supports 32-bit code, therefore your DAW will not read the plugin.
