    To all those who pirate software: I UNDERSTAND!

    I'm sick of this!

    These companies (like AUDIO EASE, for example), make it extremely difficult for consumers to install their stuff because of all the "security" and "authrorization" they put us through before we can even install it!

    I can't even re-install the software I paid 500 dollars for a few years because of all this PACE Interlock mumbo-jumbo and confusion. Lost registration codes you can only get ONCE, broken links to authorization sites, and the waiting on them to get their sh*t together makes me wanna just go download a keygen and just get it over with.

    It's not very smart if you wanna keep people from pirating your stuff to make it HARDER on the honest customers...WAKE UP! Ain't nobody stealin Altiverb anyway cuz the software sucks anyway.....the impulses sound good, but the software is TRASH (that thing crashed on me numerous times).

    Angry Re: To all those who pirate software: I UNDERSTAND!

    *sigh*

    No keygen available!! Man, this is utter TRIPE! Software companies are PUNISHING US FOR BEING HONEST! GPO itself is Hell to authorize unless everything goes perfect (which is probably one of the reasons why Gary did away with Native Instruments, thank God). Now, I can't ever install Altiverb again because I don't have the response code anymore and they're not willing to give it to me! 500 dollars down the drain!!! Then they wonder why people steal from them! Because they're stealing from us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    woah!

    4 posts in the wrong forum!

    I understand how you feel. And I can't really help. Maybe the company can help? If not I would suggest (don't kill me for this) to find stuff that are lightly prorected, or with people who understand (I'm sure that something like this would never happen to a Garritan product. You could e-maiil Mr. Gary himself and he would sort it out I imagine... (<-let's not put him through this, huh? ))

    sorry to hear about this, and good luck!

    I don't feel sorry for half these companies one bit!

    I have thrown away 500 bucks (that's actually alotta money to some folks, perhaps maybe not to sample library people since they can afford 10000 dollar libraries anyways, but...).

    Never again will I ever be able to install Altiverb. Ever. Done deal. They've locked me out!

    Soon, I won't be able to use GPO anymore because my serial number is "invalid" and NI is not willing to give me another one. I know for a fact that this was one of the reasons that Garritan wanted to run their own libraries by getting their own player.

    If these companies get pirated from half the time it's their own fault. There ain't gonna be that many people pirating the Garritan Steinway...

    Altiverb is overpriced, and EXTREMELY difficult to register (now impossible for me) reliably unless you JUST BOUGHT it and never have to re-install it....if I could go back in time I would have just pirated it...I don't owe anything to those theives over there...

    I so agree. Garritan is actually one of those companies that's fairly easy, relatively, to register. Thank God no dongle or any of that nonsense. But yeah, it's pathetic I have to run a cracked version of Cubase because the anti-piracy coding makes the legal one run slower. In your case, just google 'altiverb torrent' and be done with it.

    In case you expect any help:

    Could you eventually stop the over-exaggerated emotional stuff that doesn't help anybody? Instead of this better describe the cold and hard facts what actually happened, and do it in a scientific way. Stick to a list or a dotted table if it helps.

    I am sure there is a solution, but only if you define the problem properly.

    No I don't think so.

    I changed a system a few weeks ago and Altiverb 4 needed to be reinstalled on a Mac with Tiger (not even Leopard or indeed, Altiverb 6).

    It took Audioease a day only to send me another registration number, They were extrememly good and a few emails later - all was good. They wanted me to upgrade to Altiverb 6 - and I will do so of course on this system one day - we have 6 on another system already.

    Very good company and extremely friendly chaps from the flatlands!

    Well my cubase version runs lovely on a 2.8 GHz single core. So...

    Childrens talk I say! Stick to what Hannes told you and I'm sure help will be on the way, Craig!
