EB5AGV I should be the exception, all my music software is paid by me or either free from its origin
Here lives another such exception. Just a matter of decency and integrity. Happily paid full price for Modern U, which has an excellent price-to-quality ratio. Those makers are quite literally worth their money.
I do regret a couple of Production Voices purchases which are not worth their money, even at the silly sales price of $29 that I paid for each of them. Being someone with next to no budget, that still is quite a bit of money to unnecessarily lose to unfounded promises. Of course it was learning money -- now I will never buy anything anymore that can't be thoroughly tried or has a decent return/refund policy. Modern U was a wild/lucky shot based on my trust in @David B's YouTube review. I still cherish my luck (and David's integrity) that wasn't a lemon (at all).
I learned a lot from using and studying the free .sfz Salamander Grand Piano, which is quite nicely done for someone's hobby project. Respect for the maker. But it is not in use anymore.
Anyway, no piracy here either.
Cheers and happy integrity,
