Maybe its a stupid question but I keep thinking if actually everyone buys these 180€ expensive VSTs for example Massive or what ever...

I mean, I was working on a cracked Sony vegas (filmediting) till my father bought it :) And as he saw i was playing around a demo of FL and asked him if he'd buy it he did it because he (and so do I) doesn't like hacked things...

but on the other hand.... i haven't got a lot of a money (nor does my father even if it may seems so...) but with these free VSTs ( I found till now) I'm not really happy. So the thought comes up to hack this...
but then I think again:
If I spent my time to create this program and went through quite some struggle, i wouldnt want someone to hack it either, since this is actually STEALING...
Same with music, when I make tunes I don't want people to steal them either...

But well ...

I'm quite sure nearly all of you have the same thoughts and (hopefully) the same ethics/moral/you-know as I do... But how do you handle it?

Crack it and buy it later when if have the money?
simply crack it - fuck the producer
Search for nearly equal VSTs (can at this point maybe someone link a "Massive" Equivalent?^^)

What ever... May you could move this to waffle but it has something to do with Production so i just leave it here....

You've answered your own question really. Save up and buy them.

well I think it sucks for people who don't have enough money but still have a lot of creativity that they can't afford those plugins.. so imo it's only fair to use a crack when you really don't have any money..

I say buy the vsts. saves problem, with cracked things they might break, give you a virus, or not give you the satisfaction of "holy shit, just got massive in the mail!!"

the difference between commercial plugs and fee is so incredibly small there are but a few plugs that really merit buying (or downloading cracked, as it were).
granted i use mainly hardware to get the sound for my sound i like the sound, but stuff like reverbs and delays and stuff are just as good with free plugs
