    Well, here’s the thing, knowingly these companies give out these cracked pieces of software because they know people can’t afford a 1000 program (Industry professionals told me this). Once I have the money, I’m definitely buying the programs. You have to start somewhere though. In my opinion, using cracked software is like a friend burning a CD of an album they bought, and if they decide to give it to you, then good for you. But you have to deal with glitches, which can disrupt the workflow. But when I have the money, I have no excuse not to buy these programs.

    I use cracked software only a small number of times. Most of the cracked software I had I didn’t know how to use it (smh). I use imaschine on iPad now.

    When I first started we had reason and new version came out and when I went to download it, it would work. They my producer said that he got it from the YMCA for free.. I told him that the word saids Ephesians 4:28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. So, I had them check the computer and we had sounds that was stolen and I had then removed.. How can we say we are making music to glorify God, with stolen software? That doesn’t add up.. I started buying software and gear one at a time.. Roman wasn’t build overnight..

    Hi everyone,

    Im sure we all have started out with cracked software. As for me i started out with reason 4. But i got the disc from one of my friends. Not really cracked software right? No but it was just as bad. The end user agreement (that alot of us probably dont read lol) usually only allows a certain amount of licenses to be used. I know for a fact the disc i used had be installed on Atleast 8 computers lol. Suck part about it is no tech support, no upgrades, and eventually no reason 4 lol.

    There is actually a “anti-piracy” coalition going on right now where they are fining companies that use pirates software.

    I dont condone starting out using bootlegged software but I understand that we all have to start somewhere. If i had to give a producer/engineer advice on how to start id tell them to start with using the demos

    Hey people of the world

    When it come to using cracked software I dont shave any experience with it but i dont condone it either. A loop hole in anything is not gonna bring good results.

    What the bible says about not paying someone who works for you.
    1 Timothy 5:18
    For the Scripture says, “YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”

    James 4:17
    17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

    What the Government has to say about not paying someone who works for you
    USA Law
    H.R.3261 — 112th Congress
    Stop Online Piracy Act – Authorizes the Attorney General (AG) to seek a court order against a U.S.-directed foreign Internet site committing or facilitating online piracy to require the owner, operator, or domain name registrant, or the site or domain name itself if such persons are unable to be found, to cease and desist further activities constituting specified intellectual property offenses under the federal criminal code including criminal copyright infringement, unauthorized fixation and trafficking of sound recordings or videos of live musical performances, the recording of exhibited motion pictures, or trafficking in counterfeit labels, goods, or services.

    What the bible says about the Governments laws and rules
    Romans 13:1-1
    Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.

    There’s no need to crack software now. Anyone can make due just fine with free software.
    Tracktion 4 is free now. There’s Podium free too.
    A used mpd or similar, and a cheap interface, and presto your in the game!
    Might not even cost you $100 total if you look around.
    Jumping into production has has never been so affordable.

    Sure you can spend all the money you want, but you don’t “need” too.
    I buy new stuff now, and again because I like options, and I “like” too.
