    Don't you worry, BigMottz. I've got you. All you need to do is run your master through a CL 1B twenty seven times. Not more. Not less. It's all about the algorithms and ish.

    If you don't make money or tutorials where everyone can see that you use cracked software it doesn't really matter. If you do, you should buy it. I think buying is better than gambling or getting caught and your labels kicking you out of the front door, or the developers want all of your earnings. Or the bad reputation you'll get.

    Just don't tell anyone.
    But if Martin Garrix, Mike Williams and prob others have tutorials using cracked software don't worry about it.

    Best way to do this is :

    Grab some Multitracks ( available here)

    Sample a few milliseconds of the noise floor of the tracks ( the pregap start section)

    Make an Impulse response from that pregap sample.

    Using Reaper Reaverb on the last fx slot on the master bus load that Impulse response file

    Now you have the master track masking any foolish additions to the frequencies.

    The benefit of this is your master bus ( and therefore your tracks ) will be coloured slightly by the Impulse Response file sample from the Multitracks.

    "Thou shall not steal" - Moses, 1391 BC.
    Although technically, he did sample the big guy's lyrics and try to pass them off as his own.

    He got to the #1 in the Billboard charts...
    Do you want the same?

    PS If you didn't know which song exactly, here is it:

    Just because they did it, it doesn't mean that everyone can use cracks without (fear of) consequences. And both videos are a few years old, where people didn't care as much about cracks as today. Nowadays much more people will scream "haha R2R lol" if they find out. And they were rich and popular anyway (at the time the videos were recorded), so maybe they don't really cared that much. But most people are not in this position.

    Image Line as an example, gets really pissy if they find out that you get money from your releases while using a pirated copy. I wouldn't risk it.

    Pardon my ignorance here, can you please elaborate that statement? Developers add frequencies... like watermarking? What are those vst, or libraries affected? And, how do you known they are affected?. Nice tip BTW.

    this is a mistaken statement, exactly, if someone is rich, then to get them into the court could be very profitable...
    Examples? There are many nowadays and before, one of the latest:
    Lana Del Rey received a law suit for the copyright infringement

    Are you talking about this? I was curious so I looked it up but it seems it's a different kind of copyright infringement than the kind that's talked about in this thread.

    I saw an Instagram live once of a hip-hop producer who showed the screen and he was stupid enough to show the top left corner if anyone uses FL Studio you know that's the where the name to what FL is registered to. he was using FL 11 and the box said TEAM R2R. Now I'm not blaming him for using a cracked DAW. but the fact he made so much money to buy Rolexes and luxury items but still never thought about paying image line for their product is whats I find ignorant.

    So my answer is:

    Use the keygen properly and make it generate the license to your name.

    Yeah that's dumb. If I ever made money with cracked DAWs and plugins the first thing I would do is to buy legit versions of those.

    Nobody believes me but if you light an incense candle next to your PC nobody catches you. You're welcome.
