Personally, I think that was a really smart decision for that reason alone, even aside from the other reasons, like NI fees (you guys are saving a fortune, especially at the rates back then) and lack of control when another company hosts your libraries. (Don't even get me started on the hoops I have to jump through to make things NKS compatible - all so NI can sell more hardware.)The reason is we haven’t been hacked yet. No pirated libraries. PLAY was the worst best decision ever made. Lol and crying a bit. Some (not all by any means) of the EW haters are actually the guys that can’t pirate the stuff. It’s pisses them off. 90% of kontakt library users are pirates.
I'll agree with that. Play is running well here now. Play Pro would still be nice, but I'm happy.Play actually has some advantages over Kontakt. And it’s pretty good these days. Hollywood choirs interface is decent. It’s not all bad at all. And soon...
