    Acousticsamples in UVI format, new libraries, bundles, and updates.

    Unified UVI format and free advanced player.

    "We have big news today, you might have seen it on the website already, but all of our products are now in UVI format only and got some very important updates. This means that we now offer Virtual Instruments, all of the libraries come with their own player that support advanced scripts. The UVI Workstation is the equivalent of the MachFive 3 player and is provided for free with every purchase. It works as a VST, AU, RTAS in both 32 and 64 bits and on windows and Mac. Given the little problems we got with megaupload like websites, we now also protect our libraries with the iLok protection. Some people won't like it, but we really had no choice."

    "Some people won't like it, but we really had no choice.". Wrong, you've only make the worst choice.
    I was thinking to buy your fantastic Kawaï, but now you made me change my mind.

    haha :rofl: come on ilok dongle - thats the biggest joke ever.
    uvi format just sucks ...
    btw i never heard of that company :dancing:

    some ppl will never get it?! it will bring u nothing when u protect ur stuff - the ppl will just not buy it - when its dongled.

    ull see a few companies which are still alive and they do not use any dongles.
    but when they think ...

    ok time to download the old versions and test it out.

    Their Kawaï EX PRO and Old Black Grand (Playel) are truly wonderful. I suggest you to check the demos.

    Yep, i agree. Some developers are so stupid. :(
    Same for DUY with their new product Deep Analog EQ.
    iLok USB key protection even on the DEMO!!
    I was thinking to buy it but then having to install all that crap scared me.
    Who will ever buy it???

    I wonder if these jokers are ever going to realize that 99% of the people downloading their stuff were never going to be buyers. If things keep going the way they are, particularly with the corporate US dictators grabbing full world control, I can see a future where there will be little or no filesharing. I wonder who these companies will then blame everything on when their sales don't increase? Cos that's just what's going to happen. Then it will be on to the next excuse. Dylan had it right, we're 'only a pawn in their game'.


    EDIT: Has anyone seen acousticsamples telematic floating around anywhere? I'm interested in checking it out.

    hmm sometimes im think some dongle creators help the crackers - cos everytime they crack something - the dongle guys bring 3-4 months later a new version of the dongle :) just to get the developers to upgrade to the new one :rofl:

    @kookabro ;) the plugin looks really nice but a dongle for demo version no way - the same for vengeance stuff (metrum and the other stuff ...)

    @Lord Gaga yh i checked the demo yesterday and also saved the version i could find ...

    @rico88 yes i agree - most of the ppl just grab it cos its free - not cos they want it so badly. in fact they are really losing nothing.
    and when we cant try it without doing serious dongle crap to prepare to test it for 7 days or so - we will not buy it right?! but they maybe lose the ppl who would buy it without the dongle
    so double minus! used money for dongle protection + losing ppl which would buy it without dongle :P when they think - why not *yes*

    then let the developers do their dongle crap - we have atm enough other good stuff -
    its sad i know :sad:

    i really dont get it why they not use Themida?!
    http://www.oreans.com/themida.php
    nobody cracked themida - they update it very fast when it gets cracked
    u need no dongle - its just a crypted source code of the product.
    i mean rob papen is using it for his new products.

    UVI has the best Free Sample Player. Available for Mac OSX and Windows.
    I use the older Version 1.1.7 with filters and more.

    The new one 2.0.2. has less features but a new design and some approvements.

    Interesting is the word current. This says nothing about the Future!

    SecureEngine® defeats all current cracking tools that can be used against protected applications

    One thing remains clear : the more a product is popular and targets a large market, the more his protection is easy to crack (Windows/Office, Photoshop, Logic, Reaper, Spectrasonics, Native Instruments, Voxengo, PSP, etc.).
    This fact should give pause to some developers...

    Well. Vi labs > Acoustic Samples. This thread now is some sort of necromancery.

    I know what you're thinking "but now it's cracked hahaha" nah. Their investment paid off, if it took a decade for any team to finally crack and publically release then it was a good investment to go ilok. All they need to do is update protection, update their stuff, cuz they know that no mfucken team will ever touch updates again. You always see it with the big guys, Protools hadn't been cracked since 12.5, no team ever cracks updates anymore. This uvi thing will be one and done, and it's gonna be another decade before some team decides to crack it again. The companies know this and don't care, it's a temporary loss for them only. R2r isn't gonna come back and crack each update of reason or uvi. They just don't do that.
