EXCLUSIVE
Episode 55 is a bit of a shocker - Dave Robinson, editor of Pro Sound News Europe, has unearthed a BIG STORY regarding Waves (they who make premium plug-ins). Apparently they have been using undercover agents to gather evidence that studios in the UK and the US are using unlicensed or cracked versions of their software, and then hitting them with heavy legal letters demanding the license fee plus damages. Now this is a very bold and aggressive move, and one that is clearly aimed to make big waves (excuse the pun). To help us makes sense of it all are Dave Robinson (obviously), Mark Tinley - Duran Duran's man for many years, sound artist and musician and Dave Spiers from GFORCE Software, makers of some of the finest instrument plug-ins. But the Waves software police is not all we speak of, passing through our collective consciousness is also the upcoming Yamaha Tenori-on release, a massive musical Tesla coil instrument, a 404 thats a TB-303 ,plus new Dell quad cores, new iMacs and Garageband iLife08.
