The broadband revolution has made it easier than ever to obtain a pirate copy of FL Studio. Perhaps you fit into this category? We know the reasons – it is cheaper (actually free). You want to ‘try before you buy’, but the buy part fell off the ‘to do’ list. But have you ever thought about the reasons why you shouldn't be using a pirate copy?
1. Lifetime free updates - buy it once and get all future versions of FL Studio
Other companies charge hundreds of dollars for updates even when you have paid a lot of money for your software. Our policy is different. FL Studio is reasonably priced to start with, from version 10 and up all FL Studio Editions come with Lifetime Free Updates. It means that whenever a new version of FL Studio becomes available, you will be able to download it FREE OF CHARGE. A simple download is all that is needed to get updated! We think that’s fair.
2. Keep your PC protected - cracked FL Studio hides security risks
Piracy and security threats come hand in hand, usually because they are done by the same people. When using a cracked copy of FL Studio you take the risk of being infected with a virus, Trojan horse, malware, spyware and other unpleasant surprises hidden in the keygen or the software itself. Usually the problems caused by malicious code will cost you much more than the money you would pay for FL Studio license.
3. Get immediate support
Owners of licensed FL Studio are authorized to use our online support every time they need help or have questions. This assistance is provided directly from our developers & staff. Answers are delivered accurately and promptly, we want your FL Studio experience to be the best. As a registered user, and customer you, are also able to discuss tips & techniques, problems, exchange presets & songs, to share your ideas and recommendations and be part of the ever-growing FL Studio community.
4. Using a pirated copy means breaking the law
Piracy is not only a hobby or a way to save money. You should acknowledge that every time you install an illegal copy of FL Studio, you break the law and infringe our copyright. While you may be ‘under the radar now’, what happens when you publish a hit song, or someone uses your music professionally? Isn't it better to invest some money instead of taking the risk to be involved in civil and criminal sanctions? Worry, who needs it!
5. You never know what you are downloading
Save all that effort searching for cracked software that may not work correctly. Pirate versions tend to crash, contain obscure bugs and usually just waste your time for searching and downloading something that is not even close to the original FL Studio. You are faced with this same search each time you want to get the latest version. We offer Lifetime Free Updates remember.
6. Act like a real producer
If you really want to make great music with FL Studio and become more than just a hobbyist, you should spend time, effort and yes a little money on this journey. First step is buying a legal product simply because this is an investment in your future. Don't forget that you do not own the copyright on your own music projects if you do not own a legal copy! Don’t risk the royalties on your next super hit.
7. Take all the advantages of being our customer
As a customer of Image Line you will always be the first to know about news, updates and promotions. You can always contact us if you have an issue – something that couldn't be done if you are dealing with faceless, nameless Internet pirates.
8. Buy FL Studio and support its development
Believe it or not, there won't be future FL Studio 10, 11, 12, etc, if people keep pirating. Software development is an expensive and intensive process, just like the production of laptops and iPods. This process requires serious cash investment and FL Studio is not an exception. We estimate that if 1 in 10 people using pirated copies purchased FL Studio we could double the number of free features we add each year. Keep FL Studio alive by purchasing your own copy!
9. Morals, we all rely on them every day
When someone sells you something, you expect to get what you pay for and what was promised right? Then why isn’t the reverse true, why shouldn't you pay for what you got? It is up to your type of personality and moral principles to decide what to do. We realize that if you are determined to use a cracked FL Studio, you will do regardless of how many reasons we give “Why not to”. But, when you are ready to do the right thing, just go to http://shop.image-line.com and we will welcome you to the FL Studio family.
