    i just met a soundman working in pro studio, and he say to me, i can just work with non cracked things (daw, vst, etc).
    he doesnt want to have problems with laws.

    so we can't make professional music with those cracks?

    The short answer to that is: YES

    You can make pro tracks with cracked software

    most of these type of questions come from people very far from been in the actual "pro" situation. make your music stop worrying and cross that bridge when you come to it, by then you will know your answers

    and i don't want to be caught, and mainly my soundman who's running a pro studio for about 1 or 2 years.
    people pay him.
    he don't wanna to be payed and work with cracked softwares, people will start a very bad reputation.
    sad because i work with sonar, and him too. but dont wanna work with my cracked plugins. :(

    i dont really get the question. its not about what you can or cant do, its your friend/collegue who told to not use cracked software when working with him. where is the debate?

    so? is the question to convince you (since you dont seem to sure about it) to convince him its not very probable that you will get "caught"?

    i at least thought he already had made his mind on the subject and explained it to you.


    look, it all depends. if you are in a bigger city in a country where agencies are hired to find studios doing this that it could happen, "could" happen. there is no way of saying 100% but its no likely to happen. and yes, you can continue making music as you have always done BUT your friend already did the work for you, he already told you, didn't he.

    my english isnt very good. sorry.
    the main question is , is it safe to use cracked software, if one day i become more known.


    ok i get your point! thank you! :)

    he may already told me. but i wanted to know if he paranoid or if hes right to be afraid!

    no prob. its just it sounded like your friend was already determined to work with "legit" software. then there is no discussion. then its a matter of respecting his will, or choosing anther path

    the software he uses right now, is it all legit/purchased software?

    yes it is legit.

    but maybe if he was bad informed, i could tell him there's no problem. hes maybe not so determined. i dont know!
    i inform myself. to see if hes right or not.

    oook, its like i thought.

    well, he could continue to use the software he uses, no harm done there then.
    if he is the official owner or if he feels he represents the studio then i find it totally understandable.

    you on the other side, if you are going to come in with your laptop, then who the flying %&% cares what you have on your laptop :) , that cant be his responsibility really and in that case the chances of getting in any trouble for his part are pretty small, so you could tell him that.

    unless your are going to be the co-owner or god knows what..

    Even deadmau5 also uses the Sylenth1 Crack on his first five albums. He bought it when he became bigger.

    Even Martin Garrix also uses the Crack Sylenth1 he also might have bought it by now. Same with Avicii and probably many of your favourite artists.

    Yes I would not know all these plugins, mixing and mastering, production stuff if it wasn't for crack plugins. So right now, I am just using it for my hobby and trying to sell my music and if at any point, I got bigger or earn money from my stuff, I will buy all of what I use eventually.

    Right now, develop your skills with crack plugins. Try to make it to the top and when you eventually made some money and a stable income through your music, go and buy those favourite plugins of yours.

    i dont have laptop but yeah, i have pc, and hes a lil far away from me. im not equiped like him.
    he said, i could send him my project. and he could work on it with his legit sonar.
    but he doesnt wanna install vst like Waves etc if its cracked.

    but hmmm.... maybe i could use his plugins here.
    for kontakt libraries or vsti, i just have to freeze my tracks and send him like that :) no need to install anything :)
    good idea!
