I understand what you're saying, but think that if you put a product
into the public it should be the best, regardless of what you pay to
whom - otherwise what's the point in making something. I think it is
really CRAP that people think that you should get a buggy piece of
software or a half-hearted shit into the ether just because people
aren't paying cash. There will always be publicity for products and
even people using cracked Cubase are publicising the software. I
downloaded ProTools Free a month ago and it is full of annoying bugs
- if I were a potential buyer of the real product I would think twice
about making a purchase, given THIS example of what is on offer.
