    Most demos of some big software packages are not fully functional and are very limited, but there are many "alternative" developers that offer extended periods of demoing, full functionality, etc.

    But still - if you intend to use some very serious DAW like Steinberg Nuendo - it is a lot to ask 1700EU from a 16 year old kid (or his parents) to start learning it... but I know quite some of such kids that started using pirated software and when they became more PRO they bought the software.

    I guess some sort of silent agreement is going on.

    When you debate it publicly there is no way to sound moral or ethical while supporting something the developer (and owner of the work) is against.

    So my vote is - there are instances where the use of pirated software could be "ethical" or at least justifyed (poor and in crisis countries (I know that pirated software contributed a lot to computer literacy of young generations in Bosnia for example), non commercial - learning use of teenagers, etc.), but it is never really moral or ethical to use something against the will of the producer of the work.

    Now, another question for any pirate is - do you need to be ethical and moral all the time and even in such cases when your actions don't harm anyone (you wouldn't buy the software anyway, you don't make money with it, you don't re-sell it, etc.) ? Do you need to be moral or ethical just out of the principle? Well, only your conscious or/and religious/spiritual belief can answer that for you.

    BUT - there is enough of free and share scene around that you can support, use, participate without being a pirate... although we all want to be pirates sometimes - at least for the masquerade, hehe.

    No one forces you to use software you can't afford. NI is not the only one. There are so many. They offer demo's. Pay the maker the money he is kindly asking you if you really think you need the stuff. After all, modern software is ridiculously powerful compared with what you pay for it, it's a steal really. Some makers of software and music offer the stuff for free, some don't. It is up to them to make that decision, not you. A no brainer imo.

    Also, Stickman said it right away. If preview listeners need to hear it louder then provide a scrollbar for volume on each preview.

    The only problem with this is that flash does not let you add gain to a signal. It can only attenuate.

    I'm surprised that only 19 people weighed-in on this! (The poll I mean)

    Hmm a "Loop Maker" . . . Free is Audacity, You need make them around Exactly 5 second or 10 seconds or on a Half second to make a good loop. Second you'll need something to Tempo them. Or just copy and paste as many times as you want. Or get a Tracker. get MadTracker. And continuously hit the C5 to keep looping it. thats what I can tell you. . . . .

    After a bit of negotiation and contract updating with the attornies at Disney, I recently worked out a deal with the producers to allow use of http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=14739 for the DVD release of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Step_Up_2.

    It will be used in the menu transitions as a sound effect, I assume only part of it since it's a bit long.

    Anyway, it isn't like I got a job with Dreamworks or anything, but it couldn't have happened at a more perfect moment.

    Thanks to Bram and all at Freesound for giving a little platform for sound geeks to show off their bloops and bleeps and also for providing a great resource for those looking for sounds that they need.

    As soon as I get my laptop and my USB mic out of the pawn shop. I will be doing some monophonic field recordings and posting some new stuff, maybe I can finally record a hurricane this season. Also the lightning here is apparently more intense than anywhere on earth so maybe instead of distant rumblings I can get a near strike without blowing the levels through the roof. Wish me luck...

    whoops

    I completely forgot I signed up to soundclick 3 years ago.

    My bad

    I think this should work.

    Soundclick's streaming format really raped the sound quality sad

    http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=505479
    or http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6605243

    Click Perception of Time

    All the clock and bell sounds came from this site, as well 2 of the drum samples for the D&B score.

    Ignore the other song, its like, 3 years old weird

    edit: it seems theres a hifi play version.
    Click full next to Perception of Time and click hifi.
