It’s simple – More people prefer 10 and 11 to 12. And I firmly believe in Image-Line’s staff. However, ultimately I’m unhappy with 12…
So, if you feel it necessary, why not get the pirated producer version of 10, and buy FL Studio 12 producer edition?
I mean, it makes more sense to have a clean conscience – and I think that the FL Studio people can understand that those people composing classical, or jazz operatic, singing etc – Would not want a linear tape-drive effect reminiscent of the thrum of wow and flutter.
Here’s another point to make though.. maybe 12 is less an upgrade then it is another “version”. You see.. it seems to me that that is the case. Good for groove and funk 12 is; You could say – And yet Image-line should offer retro-active licensing for previous versions for those who are willing to pay. After all, Image-line offers product upgrades for life. If you are to buy a license for an Image-Line product, why should’nt that promise be applicable to versions that HAVE been?
Seems totally legal to me.
It is downright criminal to force an artist making operatic or jazz to super-impose a wow and flutter 8-track effect. Furthermore, I was unhappy when I realized that the drivers FL Studio 12 imposed changed MY Parametric EQ 2’s sound (even in FL Studio 10 -_-).
I imagine there will be lawsuits when people catch on. But maybe this is the new face of Image-Line and we will say various “Versions” that are better suited and adapted to different genres. If that is the case though – This super=-imposed “wow and flutter” should be an optional thing.
And that’s all there is to say about piracy and FL Studio 12.
