One option is to save up, but I feel I'd be saving up and not doing anything. Examples of what I am referring to in...

    VI designers: What makes or breaks third-party demos?

    Hi there, IIUC, there are certain VI designers /companies who will take uncomissioned audio demos from aspiring composers and, if the demos are good enough, share them on the company's SoundCloud, somewhere on the product page. At least, that's how I'm guessing that happens. I'm not at all a...
