    blaqueruestir,

     

    Being a pirate is one thing, and implying that good helpful people on here are ***'s is another, but on top of that being such a deliberate blatant liar really is really pushing things somewhat.

     

    Check this link out:  http://bit.ly/18tscT9  - Is that some crazy coincendence that not only are you installing from a disk image, but that the google search results for the image you have matches pages of illegal bit torrent downloads?

     

    Generally, i think most people accept that piracy happens with audio software, especially when combining expensive software and the 'curious' home/hobby market.  But then something like LPX comes along, and honestly, it's an absolute steal for you what you get and it really takes the p*** that musicians/producers would pirate it, in fact it gets me down to think about it as they're probably wearing jackets/trainers that would cost near the same.

     

    On top of that you're potentially going to be making money selling music from the app (And it's included content) too : https://discussions.apple.com/message/22983316#22983316

     

    Do the right thing man! And you'll be supporting future versions.

    The following is my opinion. Without making assumptions about anyone's honesty, I'd like to chime in on the subject. Logic Pro X is an incredible program at a very fair price. I think it's the best DAW deal out there by a long shot. When people buy it, they are not only supporting future versions but the larger idea of excellent software at a fair price. I migrated to Logic because I didn't like AVID's upgrade policies (and hardware restrictions until recently). Waves treats their paying customers like theives by default and their paid upgrade policies suck, too. Logic's plug-ins are the best included plug-ins of all the DAWs I've used. I know many honest people that have tried a cracked plug-in, liked it and paid for the legit version. Smart companies offer fully-functional demos. UAD is a great example. There's no really excuse for using stolen software to make money for yourself. It's gross. And if you're using cracked software in a commercial studio, you'rer also an idiot asking for an increased risk of crashes, downtime and unhappy customers that may not even know you're using stolen property on their sessions and charging them for the privledge.

    Wait a sec, did ANYONE read Everything that I wrote, or are again, making assumptions and taking sides?

    This thread is really pathetic, beyond the fact that I got what I paid for, it works and I explained it, some of you must feel some some righteous need to harp on a dead issue.

    Opinions and assumptions are closely related....and when I want one, I know where to find them. #this thread.

    GIVE IT A REST ALREADY.

    I think these are general comments not directed at you, at least most of them.

    Sorry for assuming what i did, and of course, for being pathetic, i've just re-read what you've written and wrongly developed a righteous need be a hero.  I honestly don't know what come over me lolz!!1

    What, you don't like bloated, slow operating systems!

    I see I'm not the only one who noticed that Mavericks runs like molasses.  It starts up more slowly, apps take longer to launch, dialog boxes take longer to open, it shuts down more slowly.

    Now, we find out that it also breaks a lot of apps including Logic Pro 9 before version 9.1.8.  I had purposely downgraded from 9.1.8 to 9.1.7 because 9.1.8 "phones home" too much.  Apps that phone home are BS.  This is something I would expect from Microsoft; not Apple.

    Sorry, but "phone home" implies that potentially personal data is transmitted _to_ somebody. That is not the case with Logic, it merely checks for content updates at launch. You are worse off by using an older version.

    I use Little Snitch.  That's how I know Logic Pro 9 9.1.8 is phoning home.  And it doesn't just contact one site; it contacts multiple sites.  Why so many sites for merely checking for content updates?
