That's because it's got an indirect influence on what he's got to pay for updates . Before Yamaha took over, the price of the Midex 8 rose to rather unpleasant highs, too.

I'm personally mostly satisfied to know that 90% of the downloaders are usually as motivated to get to know their software properly as much as they were motivated to pay for it - not at all. With plugins, it's probably even worse; they depend so much on having sample libraries and presets given to them that they fail to get the most out of it.
