The bottom line is that a product is a product - no matter what form it takes.

People also talk about costs.

Yes it costs money to buy software. However, the costs are a fraction of the money you would have spent in a commercial studio had it not been for music software.

Music software has made it possible for the average person to record a full length album in his/her bedroom.

If it were not for music software, people would still be recording on a 4 track machine using cassette tapes. Anything else would be out of the reach of most musicians.

To all the pirates out there, “don’t bite the hand that feeds you”.

I think this post shows the problem.
1. Hardware is hardware. Software isn't. You can try to convince people otherwise if you want, but it just makes you look bad.
2. Ever hear of ADATS? Tons of people had them and somehow they were able to make records with them.
